About the role

We're not expecting you to be amazing at everything here, but this is a general rundown of the day-to-day for the Customer Ed team.

Help current customers make the most of their HelpDocs subscriptions

  • Respond to customer chat and email queries
  • Write support documentation for common queries
  • Make prerecorded videos to explain more complex product features

Help prospective users make the right decision about if HelpDocs is right for them

  • Respond to chat and email pre-sales questions
  • Identify where the product is a good fit for the prospect
  • Know the competitive landscape so you can refer prospects to one of our competitors if they're a better fit

Find and provide genuine value to potential future users

  • Write blog posts (generally personal stories) that tangentially relate to support, happiness or remote work
  • Talk to existing customers about their work and write up Customer Stories
  • Help produce ebooks, worksheets, and other long-form content

It's important to note that this isn't a traditional support, marketing, or sales role. It's a role specifically focused on educating our customers so they can make the most of their existing (or future) subscriptions.

About you

  • You're fluent (like a native) in English. Bonus points if you speak a second language. Extra bonus points if that's French, German, Spanish, Dutch or Chinese.
  • You have excellent written communication skills
  • You're compassionate, and understand that all our users are amazing, even if they currently think you're an asshole
  • You're not afraid of getting your hands dirty in different areas of the business
  • You thrive on feedback, positive and negative, and are constantly working to be the best you can be
  • You're happiest (and preferably have experience in) working remotely. Bonus points if you love to travel.
  • You have right to work in the UK (if you want to be officially employed) or you live literally anywhere else and are happy taking care of your own taxes (you'll be retained as a full-time consultant)
  • You have a personality and you're not afraid to show it. 🦄✨
  • You have a passion for helping customers, and are driven to help them succeed.

About HelpDocs

  • You'll be working a lot with our current Customer Education Lead and the founders (we're pretty awesome, so that's a perk 😇).
  • We're bootstrapped, profitable and remote. You'll get to learn how all that works.
  • Transparent internal metrics and goals. We'll share (nearly) everything with you from day 1.
  • The whole team is friendly, approachable, and inclusive to all.
  • 1-2 team retreats a year. We're currently planning our fourth team retreat for January 2020. We've had retreats in Madrid, Panama and Bangkok so far.
  • We'll provide whatever software & equipment you need to do your job successfully
  • Flexible vacation policy. Technically we offer 28 days to all employees, but we're not counting. If you need time, take it. Then come back and do great work. 💪

Final notes

If you're amazing at the role, there's room to grow in your existing role, in Customer Education in general, or move to another role entirely. We're pretty flexible.

We're looking for someone to start as soon as possible. If you're a good fit we'll get back to you within a few weeks to schedule a chat on Slack (or team chat software).

  • Snowplow Analytics (US only)

    Ideally located in Eastern or Central Time

    It’s a hugely exciting time here at Snowplow. Over the last 7 years, we’ve grown to a brilliant 50 person team that is spread out over 14 countries with nearly 150 customers and many, many more open source users, and we’re heading for even bigger and better things, fast. 

    At Snowplow, we want to empower people to do transformative things using data. We work with companies from around the world to help them better understand their customers and products, and develop a truly data-driven culture. 

    With an ever-expanding US customer base, we are now looking for a US-based Data Consultant to join our Data Strategy team. You’ll work remotely with the opportunity to travel onsite to our customers, as well as to Europe to meet with the rest of the team & company.

    We would love to hear from you if you are excited about working at the interface of technology and people, translating business requirements into technical specifications and then implementing these. 

    The Opportunity

    As a Data Consultant, you’ll be working with companies of all sizes from across different industries on building out their data capability. Through workshops and co-development sessions you’ll understand their use case and business model, design a Snowplow instrumentation that fits it and then work with their data team to implement it.

    The role combines a mixture of tactical tasks, such as writing data models and implementing tracking, with more strategic responsibilities, such as helping companies understand what data they need and how they should consume it. As you gain experience and progress within the role, your focus as part of the Data Strategy team broadens and you’ll provide value to our customers throughout their entire Snowplow journey.

    The environment you’ll be working in

    Our company values are Transparency, Honesty, Ownership, Inclusivity, Empowerment, Customer-centricity, Growth and Technical Excellence. These aren’t just words we plucked out of thin air, we came up with them together as a company and are continually looking to find new ways to weave these into our day to day operations. From flexible hours and working locations to the way we give feedback, we’re passionate about building a company that supports both company and individual development.

    What you’ll be doing

    Helping companies with their data strategy. You’ll help companies architect their cloud data stack and make the organisational changes to become data-driven business. You’ll also work with them to discover new data use cases, and plan out how to action them.

    Mapping business requirements to data solutions. You’ll work with companies on determining what data they need to collect, and how it will be used. Through holding workshops (both onsite and remote), you’ll gain a deep understanding of our customers’ industries and business models, and will be able to best advise them on how to utilise our technology.

    Delivering excellent technical implementations. From designing tracking to developing data models, you’ll work with our customers to ensure they are getting the most value out of our technology. 

    Be a Snowplow expert. Through working with the Snowplow team and our customers, as well as attending conferences and events, you’ll become a true Snowplow expert, and develop a thorough understanding of the wider data landscape.

    What you bring to the team

    • Analysis is your thing. Ideally, you will possess a degree in an analytical field such as Maths, Economics, Engineering, Computer Science or similar, or have relevant commercial experience.

    • You’re not right at the start of your journey. You have experience within consulting, data analysis, data engineering, or similar. 

    • Learning is COOL. You love working with data and are excited to learn new tools and technologies.

    • Time IS your friend. You are highly organised and able to manage your time effectively. Working on implementations for multiple customers at any given time, you are able to coordinate customer interaction and technical delivery. 

    • You love to explain ideas. You are a clear and confident communicator and are able to explain complex technical principles to people with various technical abilities. 

    • There is no ‘i’ in team. You have some experience in managing complex projects with multiple stakeholders and dependencies on various other teams.

    • You have strong technical skills. You are proficient at performing data analysis in spreadsheets or relational databases. Prior experience with SQL is valuable but not necessary.

    • Process, process, process. You have a mature attitude to security, documentation and process. Our clients trust us with their data. This is a huge responsibility and informs everything we do.

    • You’re a bit of a jet setter. You are willing and able to travel internationally (including to Europe) for work (up to 25% of the time). 

    What you’ll get in return

    • A competitive package including share options

    • 23 days of holiday a year (plus bank holidays)

    • 401(k) and health insurance 

    • MacBook or Dell XPS 13/15

    • Two fantastic company Away Weeks in a different European city each year (the next one will be in November 2019!)

    • Work alongside a supportive and talented team with the opportunity to work on cutting edge technology and challenging problems

    • Grow and develop in a fast-moving, collaborative organisation

  • Webflow (US)
    2 days ago

    Webflow is a web development and content management platform that empowers people to create incredible experiences for the web — without coding.

    And we’re looking for a copywriter to help define how people think of, talk about, and ultimately, use Webflow.

    About the role 

    Location: San Francisco HQ or US remote


    Have you ever wanted to shape perception and usage of a design tool capable of redefining how websites and apps are built? Does the idea of working within established content standards — and taking them a step further — excite you more than just a little bit? 

    As a copywriter on our Brand Studio team, you’ll: 

    Collaborate with Product Marketing, Product Managers, and performance marketers to plan and write effective, engaging, and on-brand content

    Work with Product Marketing Managers to develop and execute on compelling messaging frameworks for new products, features, and programs

    Ensure that stakeholders’ content aligns with — and when appropriate, advances — our brand voice and style 

    Create deliverables that range from coherent and intuitive information architectures (IAs) to high-converting landing pages and microsites

    Write everything from microcopy to long-form articles while adhering to well-defined voice, tone, and style guidelines

    Always keep your eye on opportunities for improving key metrics like signup and upgrade conversion, click-throughs, opens, and etc.

    That said, these role responsibilities are just the start! At Webflow, we encouraged you to contribute wherever your interests take you — and shape your role accordingly. 

    And this isn’t just a philosophical bent: we actually give you 4 hours a week (10% of the work week) to tackle passion projects directly related to Webflow. 

    About you 

    You’ll thrive as Brand Studio copywriter if you have: 

    Strong creative writing skills — balanced by a respect for clarity, concision, and specificity

    Similarly strong self-editing skills

    Familiarity with AP, Chicago, and/or Yahoo! style guides

    Well-honed collaboration and communication skills

    Extreme attention to detail

    At least working knowledge of web standards like content structure, heading usage, and accessibility

    The ability to articulate your content decisions in terms of both how they fit brand voice and how they might improve performance indicators like conversions, click-throughs, etc.

    Your past experience might include: 

    Working with Product Marketing Managers to create effective content in line with predefined messaging frameworks

    Writing within the standards of a well-defined voice, tone, and style framework without sacrificing either creativity or performance

    Directly contributing to, extending, and maintaining said content standards

    The creation of a diverse set of deliverables that may range from video scripts to emails, landing pages to microsites

    Collaboration with marketing / growth teams to plan and conduct experiments

    However, even if you don’t meet 100% of the above qualifications, you should still seriously consider applying. Studies show that meeting just 50% of a role’s requirements puts you in the running. 

    About us 

    At Webflow, we believe that our success will not only be defined by what we do — but by how and why we do it. So, here is the Webflow “why” and our “how”: 

    Our dual missions — one for the world, one for us

    We’ll pay you to take a vacation … seriously. We’ll give you a $1,000 bonus for taking your first vacation with us that is more than 5 days
