    • Good communication skills, both written and verbal


    • Join an amazing, creative and motivated team

    Company background

    We are a SaaS startup fixing email by leveraging machine learning and AI. Folio by Amitree transforms the chaos of business email into an AI-powered deal organizer, project manager, and virtual assistant. We started by taking our product to the real estate industry, and are now expanding our reach to professionals across all industries. 

    We’re on a mission to transform the way people work, allowing them to focus on the human parts of their business while letting the machine take care of all the tedious, manual administrative work. We make email not suck, for the first time. 

    We are a team of passionate product people, engineers, and marketers that get excited about solving complex processes and creating value for our users. We’re growing quickly and are backed by some of the most respected Silicon Valley investors, including Accel Partners.

    Job overview

    One of the reasons our customers love us is that we spend a lot of time talking to them and learning about their needs - be that through user research, customer support, training or social channels. We have a great admiration for how they work and how Folio is working for them. We probably know a few too many of them by their first name, which is why you’re reading this. 

    As a Customer Care Manager at Amitree, you’ll ensure our customers have a great experience whenever they reach out for help and you will proactively work to identify customers who need a hand. A big part of your job will also be to represent our customers’ voices inside the company.

    • Help our customers use the product in their day-to-day, troubleshooting where necessary, conveying plans for the product, and capturing gaps and bugs where you find them

    • Develop and deliver content that helps our customers learn how to use the product 

    • Develop practices and content that help us scale support as our customer base grows

    • Develop an innate understanding of the real estate agent & transaction coordinator roles

    • Work with customers to deliver training and help onboard them to the product

    • Participate actively in user research, learning about user needs and helping the product organization understand the needs of the customer.


    • Bachelor’s degree

    • Previous experience problem solving in a customer facing environment

    • Experience working with design & product teams

    • Ideally some experience in a small startup environment

    • Excellent written & verbal communication skills with the ability to explain complex topics in easily understood, concise language

    • Strong technical abilities, including ability to use screen-sharing tools, issue reporting tools, and customer support tools.

    What We Offer / Benefits and Perks

    • Autonomy and responsibility, control and ownership over what you produce

    Who we are

    Process Street is a SaaS platform that helps companies manage their processes and workflows. We are a lean, flexible, 100% distributed team that relies on systems to improve output 10X. Process Street is a venture-backed startup and an AngelPad alum (the #1 Accelerator in the US).

    Why you’ll love it here

    Freedom and flexibility: All 30-plus of us work wherever we’d like—reliable internet access is our only requirement. Spread across 9 time zones in 10 countries, we sign into Slack and open up our work tools on the schedule that fits our lives best. We communicate asynchronously, work autonomously, and take ownership of our work. 

    Camaraderie from afar: Being 100% distributed doesn’t stop us from getting to know each other— we have daily conversations in chat, weekly “coffee” pairings with coworkers, and once a year we all come together for an all-team retreat.

You will address inbound customer inquiries via phone, email, and live chat.  At Process Street, our Customer Support Specialists are a primary line of communication between the organization and customers.

    Aside from addressing customer inquiries, Customer Support Specialists perform a critical function in passing customer feedback and challenges to the Engineering, Product, and Executive teams. 


    • Respond to email, live chat, and phone inquiries from existing customers and prospects

    • Advise customers on the best way to use the software to meet their needs

    • Track customer interactions in our CRM system

    • Assist prospects during their trial period to ensure they understand the product functionality

    • Serve as a conduit for customers to communicate product and feature requests to Product Managers

    • Backup our Customer Success Managers in dealing with large customers

    • Contribute to the Support Knowledgebase

    • Conduct product demos with prospects and customers


    • 1-2 years of experience preferred

    • Experience with SaaS software a bonus

    • Strong English communication skills – both verbal and written

    • Strong technical ability

    • Attention to detail

    • Customer-centric outlook

    • Must be able and willing to work remote
