About the Gig

Responsible for ensuring that all new support requests answered within goal time frame.  Your primary goal is to ensure that customers have a personal and friendly response and that all cases are triaged appropriately.  This role will require friendly and effective communication with both executive level and small business level customers. Secondarily, as a CSR you will be responsible for completing detail-oriented tasks.

About You

You are a college graduate with some tech support or fulfillment experience. You have customer service experience, and are driven to deliver amazing customer experiences. You never have to be asked twice to do something to get it done. You are detail oriented and cannot stand to leave a job incomplete. While you may have little experience, you make up for it with raw energy and pure drive: you are looking to start a career and see this job as a way to prove yourself. If you are not a college graduate you make up for it with experience and grit.
