We’re looking for an empathetic and experienced Support Specialist to join our growing Customer Experience team. You’ll be an important part of a cross-departmental team dedicated to all things revenue, with a focus on helping our customers with their billing and account-related needs. You’ll go beyond just answering support tickets - our projects related to revenue will be an important part of your daily work.

You’ll be an enthusiastic problem solver with an analytical mindset and a determination to find and resolve problems. Your customer empathy will come through in your strong writing style, adapting to our user’s tone of voice. You’ll be comfortable adapting quickly and openly to changes, and keen to constantly learn and apply these learnings to your work - with failures an inevitable part of your experiments.

You will:

  • Support our users and answer their questions related to revenue through our Zendesk ticket platform

  • Communicate crucial company updates through various channels (i.e., in-app messages, emails, blog posts, etc.)

  • Manage the knowledge base articles that cover pricing and billing. This includes writing and updating existing articles, as well as creating visual content (like videos!)

  • Help create internal processes that directly impact revenue (i.e., refunds, disputes, user permissions, etc.)

  • Create reports for the revenue team that highlight customer feedback / sentiment

  • Evaluate results from tests and gather data to decide on next steps within the wider revenue team

  • Collaborate with the cross-departmental revenue team to plan and execute projects

Compensation Range

The budgeted compensation range for this role is $45,000 to $73,000 annually (we do not have a commission or bonus scheme at Hotjar). Ranges are based on market research and are equitable to other roles within Hotjar. The actual compensation offered will be based on relative experience. At this time we are only able to provide official employment status to those located in Malta. All other candidates will join our team as full-time consultants and will be responsible for paying any taxes or applicable fees where they reside.

Requirements

  • 2 years in a customer-facing role, ideally support

  • Previous tech experience within SaaS, e-commerce, or similar

  • Experience handling refunds/troubleshooting billing

  • You’ll preferably have experience implementing a new billing system or pricing structure

  • You’ll preferably have experience of going through a large product update

  • You’ll preferably have experience leading/managing small teams

  • Desire to work in a respectful, transparent, and collaborative work environment, following Hotjar’s company values, culture and ways of working

  • 👋 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?

    So, if you want to join Shanaaz, Claire, Pete, Costa, Alexis, Sarunas, Heather, Anneliese and Coral in making our customers happy, please submit your application!

    Smartbnb is seeking to automate the management of the short-term rental industry.

    Our core product is currently helping short-term rentals businesses manage over 60,000 properties. We are a growing team of 12 people with plans to expand a lot in 2019 and 2020.

    Smartbnb is bootstrapped and profitable. We are interested in building a great, sound business for years to come.

    Our company is fully distributed and remote:

    • We believe and fully embrace that your best environment is wherever you personally feel the most productive and comfortable for day-to-day work.

    • We organize frequent meetups and retreats for the team to physically meet throughout the year. The last trips were to Lisbon, Paris, Prague, and Tenerife!

    🤔 Customer success with us 🤔

    Our customers trust us for the critical infrastructure of their short-term rental business. This comes with a special responsibility to our customers.

    We aim to offer them a white glove customer service experience, to help them reach their goals of financial and personal freedom.

    We are already rated 9.6 /10 on Trustpilot and we very much intend to defend that score (it actually improved thanks to the customer service team's performance).

    At the same time, your role within the company is also to advocate for customers, in direct relation with our product team (product manager, developers, designer).

    You need to be able to qualify and identify bugs or usability problems and report them. This is important so that the development and design team can keep on improving the product.

    Lastly, we are not looking for people that like to watch the action from afar.

    We will absolutely welcome any input you may have and take ownership of side-projects that will help consolidate our business. This can be related to customer education, sales, marketing, business development and partnerships, or anything we have not thought about yet! The foundation is a deep understanding of our market, our product, and our customers.

    ⭐️ What you will do ⭐️

    Day to day, you will:

    • talk to customers via live chat, email, video calls and social media, to address their challenges and issues, verify subscription status and payments, and upsell products and services.

    • educate users and customers about our product and pricing with a focus on empathy and building up a relationship.

    • investigate, qualify, troubleshoot the customers' technical and usability issues, and work in collaboration with our Engineering and Design team.

    • host 1:1 video product demos and support calls with users and customers, so as to educate them about the product by focusing on their business needs.

    • demonstrate strong problem-solving and research skills, with attention to detail, to address user issues.

    • demonstrate a superior level of technical understanding, as you will grow familiar with the actual engineering of the product and technologies and tools being used (such keywords include "machine learning", "gitlab", "queues", "MySQL").

    • establish the company as a positive force for our users' businesses and ecosystem.

    ✅ What you will need to succeed: ✅

    Does it feel like we are on to something? Here are some common traits that successful team members are demonstrating every day and that we are also looking into candidates.

    • A deeply human individual that is easy to relate to both the team and our customers. Someone that is okay with sharing vulnerabilities with a willingness to learn and overcome them.

    • At the same time, there will be no babysitting. As a remote and distributed company, we will trust you to determine your own schedule, find the best way to deliver your best work, and reach out to your team every time you need help and support.

    • You also will need to be a strong communicator. You won't be siloed, but you should be clear, rigorous and precise in your communication, and be confident to challenge ambiguity and ideas, wherever they come from.

    • This position is for people that are excited about technology, being part of an artificial intelligence startup and seek automate things to help humans be better!

    • You have a good memory! This position will require extensive product knowledge.

    • You are available soon! (immediately, or within a month).

    • You are a fluent or native English speaker. Other languages are very nice too!

    • You are based to serve European timezones during your own daytime hours.

    • You have experience with providing 1:1 demos over video calls with tools like Zoom, or delivered phone support on platforms like Aircall.

    • Si tu parles la langue de Molière 🇫🇷, on rajoute des crêpes! 🥞😋

    • Competitive salary, including the possibility of stock options.

    • Ample paid leave, in addition to maternity and paternity leave.
