Do you enjoy troubleshooting technical issues and are detail-oriented? Are you able to communicate technical information simply and easily to technical and non-technical customers?

If so, we’d like you to learn about Files.com!

At Files.com, we believe that providing great customer support is a matter of integrity.

We won’t feel good about the product we’ve built if customers can’t figure out how to use it, if it has incomplete documentation, or if bugs don’t get resolved.

So we invest heavily in our Customer Success team with the goal of being overstaffed so that our customers get the best experience possible.

About Files.com

Files.com is the new name for BrickFTP, a cloud storage service that has existed since 2009 and has over 1,700 paying business customers.

(We hope to be launching the new Files.com homepage within the next month.)

Our company consists of 14 (and growing to 35 by the end of 2019) full time USA-based remote employees who work from home.

Our products and services are used by over 2,000 enterprises and SMBs, including Target, Canonical, UPS, Leica, DirecTV, GoPro, Marriott, and more.

We’re Bootstrapped, Profitable, and Growing

Our success comes from building a great service that solves problems for our customers, and our growth comes from expanding and improving our products as quickly as we can.

We believe that great products can only be built by great people. So we’re on a quest to find the smartest, most creative, and most motivated people, and create an environment in which they thrive.

We Are A Remote Company

You will work from home and have some flexibility to choose your working hours, allowing you to make time for family, recreation, vacations, or anything that is important to you.

You’ll take off 11 company-wide holidays per year as well as 20 days of PTO for vacations. You’ll have the time to take longer vacations and have fun.

Every quarter, you’ll travel to an in-person meeting with the entire team to meet and work together face to face. These meetings are in cities that are fun to visit. In the last few years, we’ve been to Austin, Orlando, New Orleans, San Diego, Las Vegas, and New York City.

We think that these in-person meetings are vital to the success of a remote team.

About the Role

Our Customer Success (Support) Team’s name reflects its primary goal: maximizing our customers’ success.

Daily responsibilities in pursuit of this goal include responding to customer product inquiries and providing technical support.

You will help triage customer reported issues and respond to them via phone, email, and chat.

In addition to providing customized solutions and recommendations, you will be asked to track recurring issues and report them to the appropriate team or individual.

You can further specialize in things like technical documentation, internationalization, and knowledgebase once hired into this role.

Minimum Qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s degree or relevant experience.

  • 5+ years of Customer Support / Service experience for a SaaS or technical business services company.

  • Ability to communicate technical information in a simplified, easy to understand manner.

  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills.

  • Top-notch customer demeanor.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • 10+ years of Customer Support / Service experience.

  • Knowledge of hosting-related topics and technologies like TCP/IP, IP routing, DNS, FTP, HTTP, Email, Firewalls, SSL/TLS, Unix, or Linux.

  • Experience working on a remote team.

    Our Customer Support team is expanding!

    We are looking for an amazing individual to join as our new Customer Success Champion and become a true advocate for our clients. This is a client-facing position and even though it’s remote, will require video communication on a regular basis, so please keep this in mind when applying.

    Our Customer Success champ will know every detail about our platform and how our customers can use it to maximize its value. Besides just owning all that sweet knowledge, you’ll need to be able to communicate it, and educate our customers with ease. This is a technical role that demands a wide range of soft-skills and constant stellar communication with our clients, as well as our team.

    Uscreen is an amazingly diverse, fast developing video monetization platform, and the person joining us will play a pivotal role in our growth. We are looking for someone who’s eager to learn, excited to grow with our company and is in it for the long run. Our team is incredibly smart, passionate, supportive, skilled, open to learning and constantly developing and we’re looking for someone who can match that energy.

    About the role:

    This is a customer facing role: you will be one of the first points of contact for our customers in order to help them set up their account. From basic setup and video uploads, to answering a variety of questions generally asked when first signing up, it’ll be your responsibility to provide our customers with solid and accurate answers and guidelines.

    Your main goal is to become the go-to person for all onboarding questions, making them feel they can reach out at any time. You’ll also give them tips and industry best practices, to give them everything they need to succeed.

    We are looking for someone reliable and eager to work with us long-term. This is a full-time remote position, and is not suited for a digital nomad lifestyle. We require a steady internet connection and a mandatory overlap of working hours with the rest of the team

    In this role, you will wear a few different hats, including:

    • Proactively contacting new customers to help them get setup (by email & phone)

    • Helping the tech support reps in the ticket queue

    • Attending and (later) fully hosting webinars a few times per month

    • Giving in-depth analysis of customers websites and content to offer them tips and tricks to succeed (and don’t worry, we have our marketing team watching your back)

    Requirements:

    Must have:

    • 2+ years in Customer Support or similar

    • Experience in SaaS

    • A fully functioning workstation and a quiet place to work (with their own laptop)

    Must be:

    • Able to overlap with our Washington, D.C. based team: from 9AM to 6PM EDT

    • Quick to learn and able to understand our platform as well as the video and OTT industry

    • Able to work independently

    • Native or near-native English speaker (North American accent is a plus but not a requirement)

    • Overall a nice person 🙂

    Our ideal candidate will also have:

    • Experience working with Zendesk or similar

    • Good communication skills, both written and verbal

    Benefits:

    • Amazing, young and motivated team

    • Work from anywhere (OK, almost anywhere…), as long as you have regular overlap with Eastern Time business hours and can schedule overlap with Pacific Time business hours when needed for customer calls.

    • 20 paid days off per year (eligible after the first 6 months with the company)

    • Budget for personal development

  • 👋 About us

    We are a 35+ person team building tools that help thousands of businesses streamline their social media management.

    Recently listed as one of the "Best Software Companies in EMEA" and classified as a Leader in our category on G2, at Sendible, it’s our mission to help agencies work closely with their clients to breathe life into their brands using the power of social media.

    💡 The opportunity

    We are looking for a UK-based Support Representative to join our team in providing the best customer support in our category.

    We are a remote company, but to be properly trained for this role, you’ll need to be able to spend at least 3 months working full-time from our London-based HQ. 

    We are committed to building an inclusive, supportive place for you to do the best and most rewarding work of your career.

    ✅ Things you’ll be doing... 

    • You’ll be responsible for providing delightful customer service and support via Zendesk and Live Chat for Sendible’s web and mobile apps.

    • You’ll help grow Sendible’s brand and reputation by ensuring that every customer interaction is a positive and memorable one.

    • You’ll help us answer questions, make some customer calls, create and edit help documentation, run screen-sharing sessions, and participate in our training webinars.

    • You’ll also have ample opportunities to introduce your own initiatives related to better supporting our customers and turning them into advocates. 

    • Deep technical knowledge of software development is not a prerequisite, however you should be well-versed in basic troubleshooting techniques to solve issues caused by most Internet Gremlins, especially those related to changes in social media platforms and third party APIs. The ability to think beyond clearing browser cache and cookies in order to troubleshoot the specific issue that’s reported is essential.

    • During training, you’ll be expected to be proactive in your process and learn quickly. Once fully up-to-speed (3 months), you’ll respond to 15 - 20 support tickets and chats per day.

    • Our customers expect the best level of troubleshooting and this is a significant volume, so be sure that you’re ready and able to deal with that kind of daily load — you’ll get all the support and guidance you need along the way!

    🤝 About you...

    • We’re looking for people who love helping others, with the ability to make complicated situations painless and simple.  This means being a great problem-solver, knowing how to process and resolve issues quickly.

    • You should be a stellar communicator, even when you have to communicate less-than-stellar news. You should have highly tuned senses of compassion and empathy and a drive to constantly want to help customers and colleagues.

    • We have a low staff turnover rate — a large portion of the team has been at Sendible for 5+ years. But, your voice matters to us. We like hearing fresh perspectives and appreciate new viewpoints, so you should feel comfortable speaking up and not be afraid to drive change and challenge the status quo. If something sucks and can be done better, we want to hear!

    • You love supporting people. You understand that this isn’t a springboard into another area at Sendible. You want to be part of our support team for a while, and you’re excited to contribute to making Sendible the best social media management product for our customers. 

    • A big part of the role itself is supporting each other, so you should understand the value in prioritising relationships with your colleagues.

    • We strongly encourage candidates of all different backgrounds and identities to apply. Each new hire is an opportunity for us to bring in a different perspective, and we are always eager to further diversify our company.

    💻 Why work with us? 

    • Work from our London-based HQ initially with the ability to work remotely once you're fully trained.

    • 25 days paid holiday per year, plus one bonus day for your birthday

    • Profit sharing bonuses (if the company does well and you played a big part, you'll be rewarded)

    • Medical insurance after 1 year

    • Paid sabbatical after 5 years

    • We love learning! Take part in our book club and receive free books quarterly or use your £1000 learning allowance to develop your skills

    • Gain incredible experience building a truly successful, global SaaS company with a dedicated, small team where you can have a huge impact! 

    📨 How to get our attention when you apply

    • Introduce yourself to us as a colleague. Show us what your future could look like here! We value authenticity, so be yourself, be creative, and take your time with the application. 

    • There are no bonus points for being the first to submit!  Impersonal, cloned cover letters won’t do. 

    • Tell us why you want this particular job.  Tell us about:

    • Why you want to work in customer support.

    • Why you want to work at Sendible and not somewhere else.

    • A description of a great customer service/support experience you had recently, and what made it great.

    • A time you taught yourself a new skill to complete a job or project.

    • Then, pick 3 of the questions below and answer them like you would if you worked here:

    Does Sendible support publishing to Pinterest?

    What are examples of the types of content that can be posted directly to Instagram? What requires a push notification reminder?

    What's the difference between queues and regular scheduling within Sendible?

    What is Sendible's top feature request right now and why is it important to our users?

    What is Sendible's mission?
