About this role

So, what will you do as ConvertFlow's Customer Onboarding Specialist?

This is a full-time role. As ConvertFlow's Customer Onboarding Specialist, you'll help ConvertFlow and its customers succeed through the following...

Improve user activation and feature adoption:

Help our users accomplish their goals with ConvertFlow. We use Intercom to answer questions, provide guidance, and collect feedback via live chat and email.

Organize customer feedback for the team and champion the customer's voice. We take this extremely seriously and rely on the customer feedback-loop to shape product direction and roadmap.

Create product guides, documentation and video tutorials (like this one) that educate people about features and what they can do to get more out of ConvertFlow.

Host public & private demos, webinars, and training with leads and customers periodically.

Help our team understand how releases of new features went, how they were adopted by users and how to potentially improve future releases.

Create and continuously update our knowledge base, so self-servicing customers can figure out how to achieve outcomes on their own.

Design a system for measuring customer health and process for engaging new users to ensure they get value and see “success” with ConvertFlow.

Improve user retention and reduce customer churn/cancellation rate:

Help customers with technical integrations and troubleshooting to quickly identify the source of customer issues.

Proactively reach out to high-value customers. You'll regularly connect with multiple points-of-contact at their company to identify their goals, advise them on more effective product usage, solicit feedback, and align them with future goals.

Reach out to “likely to cancel” customers to help them get value from ConvertFlow.

Engage with canceling customers and design systems for improving "win-back" followup.

Improve workflow for tracking bugs, feature requests, and better ways to improve our support processes.

Relay bugs to developers and keep customers updated while our team prioritizes and releases bug fixes.

You might be a good fit if...

You have strong writing skills in English — both short form (messaging) and long form (product guides). You pay attention to details and love to get creative with words.

You're patient, warm, and organized in your thinking. Empathy is key.

You're curious about people and problems. You're a good listener who's naturally interested to dig in, ideate, and find solutions.

You want to get into UX research, product ops, or marketing at some point in your career.

Have previous experience in a customer success role, technical support or in managing client relationships.

You're excited by the idea of guiding people to execute their ideas using a powerful product, and seeing the massive impact your guidance can have on a company's marketing results and growth overtime.

You actually enjoy troubleshooting problems and overcoming technical and non-technical challenges.

You have experience working remotely and managing your own schedule.

Are based in the US and can work 9AM-5PM Eastern timezone.

Bonus points for the following...

You have experience using popular email marketing tools like MailChimp, HubSpot or Infusionsoft.

You have experience using a popular CMS like Wordpress or Shopify.

You have experience with basic HTML and CSS, website themes and plugins.

You're enticed by the eventual opportunity to manage a team.

You're based in the South Florida area.

With customers on every continent (except Antarctica!), there’s never been a more exciting time to join Shorthand. Our company has the rare distinction in this era of money-burning startups of being both investor-backed and comfortably profitable.

    We aim to enchant our customers, and as the first point of contact for prospective customers, the Customer Onboarding Specialist role is crucial to achieving that aim.

    Core Responsibilities: 

    • Proactively engage prospective customers who are trialling our software-as-a-service products by helping them derive value from those products as quickly as possible. 

    • Respond to enquiries from prospective customers via email and other channels. 

    • Become expert in the use of Shorthand and demonstrate the product to customers. 

    • Configure customers’ Shorthand settings, as appropriate for their subscription level. 

    • Create subscriptions for customers in our billing and subscription system, and/or guide customers through the online billing process. 

    • Report bugs in the product as they are found. 

    • Pitch new product features based on a deep understanding of customer requirements. 

    • Work closely with colleagues in the sales, support and success functions. 

    • Provide feedback to the Head of Growth on any friction points in the onboarding process. 

    • Occasionally attend relevant events.

    • You have empathy in spades and an insatiable desire to deeply understand who our prospective customers are, so that you can help them derive value from our products as quickly as possible. 

    • You thrive in a fast-paced and demanding environment, possess a high level of intellectual curiosity, and demonstrate strong judgment in the face of ambiguity. 

    • You are an agile, goal-oriented personality, driven to succeed and always up for a challenge!

  • Here at Clerky, we build software to make legal paperwork easier for startups and their attorneys. We're profitable and growing sustainably. We're the most popular way for high-growth technology startups to form, and are also used by tons of top-tier startups for hiring and fundraising.

    As a senior customer operations associate at Clerky, you will be the voice of the company to thousands of startup founders, investors, and attorneys. These customers use Clerky to get critical legal paperwork done, often on a tight timeline. Our success is based on word-of-mouth, so we have a strong culture of providing world-class service (ask us about our satisfaction ratings!). We are rabidly customer-centric. Both our founders have substantial work experience in customer operations, and consider it integral to driving revenue and growth.

    Helping our customers can be unusually challenging due to the nuanced and specialized nature of their questions. The level of craftsmanship that goes into writing responses to our customers can be intense. Doing the job well can require a lot of iterative feedback, so we're looking for someone who thinks critically about their writing and is always looking for ways to improve. Along the way, you'll also pick up a ton of knowledge about startups and startup law. If you love learning and constantly challenging yourself, this position is for you.

    We're looking for someone who genuinely loves helping others and is dedicated to a career in customer operations. We want to support you as you grow in your career, and this position has tremendous opportunity for growth and advancement within customer operations, but it is not a good fit as a stepping stone to other departments.

    • We work openly and collaboratively. We’re here to support you in being successful in this role. We aren't shy about asking questions or giving feedback, and we don't want you to be either. You'll work closely with our customer operations lead to ensure our customers are getting the best possible support and experience.

    • Everyone on our team works hard, and we trust team members to know what will help them be most productive. Schedules are flexible as long as team coverage requirements are met.

    • We want to help you grow, so we have a budget for books, courses, tools, or whatever other educational resources you need to be successful.

    • We offer top-of-market compensation and benefits, reasonable hours, and the opportunity to learn a lot while helping our customers through an exciting time in the early stages of their new businesses.
