Job type: Full-time

Hiring from: US only

Category: Customer Support


At Draftbit, we believe that software should be a democratizing agent that makes it possible for anyone to turn their app ideas into reality.

Draftbit is a collaborative product development tool, focused on mobile apps. Our platform allows technical and non-technical teams to work together to build native mobile apps. Apps built in Draftbit produce high quality React Native code that can be exported at any time so you can build inside and outside our platform.

Backed by world-class investors (including Y Combinator), we have aggressive growth goals and are looking for a Community Manager to help us achieve our vision.

About The Position:

We’re looking for a Community Manager to join our small but fast-growing team. Community management doesn't have a single definition, so here’s how we’re thinking about this opportunity:

  • We're looking for someone to be on the frontline of all our customer communications - you will own all of our customer success channels (Discourse, Intercom, Readme/documentation & FAQs, etc)

  • In addition to being highly available and responsive to all of our inbound customer communication, we expect you to work proactively to cultivate community amongst existing and prospective Draftbit users.

  • You will own our social media (Twitter, Linkedin, Instagram, etc) communications and work to develop new forums (conducting app-building livestreams, curating customer apps & their stories, etc) that showcase our product and the apps successfully built by it

  • You'll be a Draftbit evangelist and represent us online and offline (at external events and meetups, etc)

  • You will work closely with our product and engineering org to translate the benefits of new features to our communities and share insights from our community engagement and initiatives

About You:

Our ideal Community Manager has experience building and managing communities of developers/technical users, or communities for technical products, has an extreme attention to detail, concisely communicates complex concepts, and is an exceptional communicator.

You’re probably a great fit if:

  • You’ve been a software engineer or been involved in building/marketing a technical product

  • You're an accomplished storyteller who has successfully conveyed the value of technical products to both developer and non-developer audiences

  • You have experience working in customer success or community management

  • You've likely been the go-to person on a team that everyone counts on to ensure things get done

  • You value self-management, execution (over perfection), speed, and personal reliability

  • You’re able to take an idea and run with it, rather than just following instructions

  • You're comfortable working in a startup environment, probably because you've worked at one (bonus points if you’ve ever started/run a business before)

  • You're excited about Draftbit and our mission. We want people who bring new ideas to the table and care about what they are building.

Additional Details:

  • This is a full-time position that can be based at our Chicago HQ, San Francisco office or remote.

  • Note: You'll need valid U.S. work authorization to join us.

Some of our perks are:

  • Full health, medical, dental, and vision coverage - we pay 99.9% of your premiums and 50% of dependents’ premiums.

  • Unlimited sick, personal, and vacation days. And we can flex on hours or accommodate special considerations.

  • Standing desks for all and the equipment of your choice

  • Chance to work with decent, fair, and flexible people

We believe in fair pay and transparency, and we anticipate this position's compensation to be between $60k to $120k in cash and .1% to .5% in equity, depending on experience.

    Hablas español ? Estamos buscando Gurús para ayudar a nuestra creciente comunidad de comerciantes españoles :). Pasará su tiempo respondiendo correos electrónicos, llamadas telefónicas y chats web en español a nuestros comerciantes españoles y, en ocasiones, también en inglés. ¿Tener interés? ¡Sigue leyendo para aprender mas!

    The work of a Customer Success Representative (whom we call Gurus) is incredibly rewarding and equally challenging. Our merchants have amazing stories filled with highs and lows, frustrations, and triumphs. It is in these moments and many in between that you would make an impact.

    As a Guru, you’ll work remotely from the comfort of your home while working within a dynamic, diverse and supportive environment. You won’t always know the answers to the questions you’re being asked, so your ability to be resourceful is key! We believe in human-centred, high-quality customer experiences. Using chats, phone calls and emails, you’ll be there to listen, teach, problem solve and explore growth opportunities with both Enterprise and SME Shopify merchants both in Spanish and English. As part of that growth, you’ll be there to connect merchants with potential new features or plans to ensure they get the most out of the Shopify platform. 

    If you’re up for the challenge and enjoy working in a high-pressure environment, we encourage you to apply and take part in a hiring process that will allow you to meet folks at Shopify and get a taste for what the job entails. We aim to provide you with as much information about the role early in the process so that you know what to expect throughout, and in your first few months.

    Following 4 weeks of training, you will begin responding to our merchants on live channels as part of a small squad, who is there to support you. All gurus work a combination of weekdays, weekends and holidays in a full-time capacity. 

    We believe in supportive teams, an inclusive work environment and providing growth opportunities within your role. We also work remotely - which means you get to be part of a fast-growing global tech company from the comfort of your home.

    Even if you’ve never held a similar position but you’re interested so far and relate to the things we’ve outlined below, we want to hear from you! 

    Responsibilities:

    • Adhering to a daily schedule.
    • Ensuring merchants have a quick response time by staying on top of your assigned tickets, with same-day ticket review.
    • Acting as a business coach and thinking about the merchant’s business holistically when offering solutions. 
    • Completing essential follow-up documentation after each interaction.
    • Engaging in human conversations with merchants to identify and resolve issues, and provide coaching/growth opportunities for their businesses.
    • Offer needs-based solutions, not pushy sales.
    • Advocating for merchants and the Shopify platform by communicating with stakeholders. 
    • Owning your own development through reflection, reviewing past interactions and preparing to discuss growth opportunities with your lead in regular 1:1 meetings.

    Requirements for the role:

    • Live and have legal authorization to work in Ontario, Canada.
    • Be fluent in both Spanish and English.
    • Have appropriate remote work set-up - such as quiet space, stable internet connection, and a back-up location in case of issues with the primary location.
    • Be prepared to work full-time hours on a rotating schedule (including weekends and holidays).
    • Thrive in a fast-paced, high-volume environment.
    • Proven track record of being incredibly resourceful and finding solutions even when there is no clear path.
    • Be proficient with technology.
    • Have strong reading, writing and communication skills.
    • Willingness to learn all about entrepreneurship, care deeply about people support and enjoy having genuine human conversations.
    • Possess high level of understanding, patience and empathy. Able to navigate more difficult conversations/interactions with professionalism. 
    • Are committed to continuous growth and learning. You understand that every challenge is an opportunity and you get excited about learning new things.
    • Ensure privacy and security practices are followed at all times for both merchants and Shopify.

    Bonus experience:

    • A background or interest in business, marketing, retail, or sales.
    • Ran or had exposure to running a business or being an entrepreneur.
    • Call-centre, customer service, and/or retail experience.
    At Shopify, we are committed to building and fostering an environment where our employees feel included, valued, and heard. Our belief is that a strong commitment to diversity and inclusion enables us to truly make commerce better for everyone. We strongly encourage applications from Indigenous peoples, racialized people, people with disabilities, people from gender and sexually diverse communities and/or people with intersectional identities.

    Additional Notes:
    Experience comes in many forms, many skills are transferable, and passion goes a long way. If your experience is this close to what we’re looking for, consider applying. We know that diversity of thought makes for the best problem-solving and creative thinking, which is why we're dedicated to adding new perspectives to the team and encourage everyone to apply.
