Job type: Full-time

As a Customer Onboarding Specialist at Awesome Motive / OptinMonster, you’re responsible for driving customer engagement and reducing churn by proactively championing the customer throughout their initial product onboarding experience. You’ll be reaching out to new customers, learning about their needs, creating campaigns to set them up for success and following up to ensure a delightful experience. If you have a happy, can-do attitude and love helping people succeed, we would like to meet you.

To love this role, here’s the type of person you are:

  • You are willing to get in the trenches with customers to help them succeed.

  • You’re a self-starter who loves taking initiative and seeing things through to completion.

  • You’re an excellent communicator who makes sure nothing slips through the cracks.

  • You have the curiosity and desire to learn and grow your skills.

  • You’re passionate about people finding ongoing value from their investments.

  • You take pride in the quality and craftsmanship of your work rather than just doing it to get it done.

Here are some skills that will come handy:

  • You have a knack for understanding where a customer is in their journey and can partner with them to get to the next level of success.

  • Familiar with email marketing basics, and comfortable communicating via digital media platforms such as Intercom, Facebook, Twitter, blog comments, etc.

  • Ability to get a full picture of a customer profile and make proper recommendations to get the most out of the product.

  • Pleasant and happy tone when speaking with customers on the phone.

  • Exceptional verbal and written communication, negotiation and persuasion skills.

  • Ability to recognize at-risk customers and be able to communicate effectively to reduce both voluntary and involuntary churn.

  • The ability to juggle multiple projects and timelines.

  • Extremely organized and able to manage time effectively.

  • Excel in a team environment and able to communicate clearly with your peers.

Responsibilities:

  • Proactively help to onboard new customers and ensure successful deployment of our products on their websites.

  • Create campaigns for customers that align with their business goals and ensure success from the start.

  • Use Intercom, Facebook, emails, customer calls and other technologies to communicate with customers to understand their business goals and ensure that they derive maximum value from their investment in our products.

  • Identify product improvements that will help the customer succeed or make the product more simple to use.

  • Recommend improvements to company processes to improve customer success and retention and reduce churn.

  • Proactively perform outreach to resolve at-risk customer escalations.

  • Work cross-functionally and collaboratively to advocate for customers with all inter-company teams.

  • Identify, collect, record and distribute customer success stories to be used in our marketing materials.

What we offer:

Working for a fully remote, fast-growing bootstrapped company is a rare opportunity, one we consider a lifestyle choice rather than a job choice. Our positions are challenging, but also come with amazing advantages and fulfillment to those who earn them. Here’s what we offer.

  • Competitive Salary.

  • Health Insurance benefits for full-time U.S. employees.

  • Flexible Schedule – Work from your home. We’re spread out all over the world – United States, UK, Czech Republic, Greece, Pakistan, and more.

  • We encourage employees to take the time they need for vacation, to stay healthy, and to spend time with friends and family.

  • After one year with the company: 30 calendar days paid maternity/paternity leave, and up to 60 calendar days total time off with position guaranteed.

  • We happily provide or reimburse software you’ll need as well as opportunities that promote continued learning.

  • We give you the opportunity to solve challenging and meaningful problems that makes a difference.

  • Custom Branded laptop at your five year anniversary.

  • We cover all costs of company travel (including our annual all-company retreat and mini-team meetups).

  • Ability to work with some of the best people in the business through frequent, if not daily, interactions.

  • And in case you were wondering: no politics, no b.s., and no jerks.

We won’t be able to individually respond to all applications, but if we feel you’re a strong match, someone will be in touch within 72 hours.

    At Slab, we build beautiful software for teams. We believe that a team's ability to store and organize information ultimately defines their ability to execute. Slab is like a knowledge base or wiki, but reimagined to be fast, intuitive, and powerful. We think of it as a long-term memory for teams.

    We are a small team of experienced developers and designers on a mission to make work easier. Slab's approach to work is inspired by companies that have a big impact while staying relatively small. We embrace remote and flexible work arrangements.

    We are looking for a seasoned Customer Support Representative to provide world-class support to our customers. Our ideal hire is motivated by what we’re doing as a company, knows what it takes to deliver great customer support, and is eager to help us make Slab the best product for our customers.

    About The Role

    You’ll spend much of your day emailing and chatting with potential and current customers via Intercom. You’ll also write a whole lot of help and learning documentation, hop on impromptu phone calls, proactively email customers to check-in, run product demos, and record onboarding videos. Along the way, you’ll troubleshoot bugs, document feature requests, and work closely with product, design, and engineering to help elevate the voice of the customer at Slab. We’ll give you plenty of support to simply do what’s right for our customers, no questions asked. This position is full-time with a preference for someone based in San Francisco. But we are also open to remote for someone based in the Americas!

    About You

    • You’re an incredible written communicator. You're good at making complex situations easy to understand using clear and simple writing. As a remote team, your communication skills are critical to your success.
    • You are more technical than the typical support professional, but it could be in a number of different ways. Maybe you can code, or maybe you are excellent at QA, or maybe you're really good at solving tricky problems. 
    • You are as confident over the phone as you are over email. You're someone who will be comfortable speaking ad-lib about how Slab works to a range of audiences.
    • You love to support people and you have experience working in support or success. You are excited to continue to build your career in support.
    • For the most part, you'll be managing yourself. You’re someone who thrives working autonomously and don’t need much (if any) oversight to get things done.
    • You’re eager to take on challenges. When you don’t know something, you embrace the chance to grow and get better.
    • You’re patient, an active listener, and you’re naturally curious with a strong desire to learn. You’re a problem solver who goes out of their way to help people.

    Compensation and Benefits

    • We're offering between $70,000-$90,000 for this role, depending on experience.
    • Medical, dental, and vision insurance
    • 7-year option exercise window
    • $5k desk setup of your choice
    • Flexible work arrangements
    Slab is an equal opportunity employer. We welcome people of diverse backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives.
