Goodlord are looking for a Customer Support Hero (Remote) to join their team.

We are looking to hire two Customer Support Heroes to join our team, we appreciate that talented individuals are not only located in London.

In light of this, if you are interested in a Customer Support Hero role, you can join us on a purely remote basis outside of London, although you MUST reside in the UK.

please note that even if you join us on a fully remote basis, you will be required to travel to a Goodlord office on average once a month. The travel cost will be covered by Goodlord.

About the role

Goodlord’s mission is to provide the best-renting experience in the world and we’re on the hunt for a Customer Support Hero to help us achieve this.

We are still a relatively small team, so there's no room for coasting along. We're looking for grafters, self-starters, who can keep up with the pace and who are ready, willing and able to get their hands dirty and want to make a real difference, to join our gang.

In return, you’ll find a group of friendly people who take the work seriously but not ourselves, and who are madly passionate about our brand and our values. We also have fun parties, regular socials, love cakes, love dogs (who we encourage into the office when we’re allowed it open!) and we can wear what we like to work (goodbye uncomfortable suits!)

If you're ambitious, excel at what you do, thrive under pressure and want to help us add a few more impressive things to our list of achievements, then we'd love to hear from you.

As an operational team, Customer Support is a team with passion and problem-solving at its core. As a Customer Support Hero, you’ll really get to have your finger on the pulse of the business, interacting and working closely alongside all teams to provide a Customer Delight experience, making our customers rave about us as well as directly helping to create an even better product and customer service.

From day one, you'll need to immerse yourself in the company and build your knowledge of our evolving platform and Goodlord's array of products aimed at making renting simple and transparent for everyone.

In this role, you’ll be troubleshooting user queries via live chat, phone, and our email contact channels. You'll need to work across the business with our other operational teams on internal escalations and investigate technical issues, as well as supporting launches of new product features.

This job and environment is not for everyone, but if you like to work hard, take pride in what you do and relish the thought of working and collaborating with bright, motivated and interesting people then we’d love to hear from you.

The day to day stuff:

This is a great opportunity to join a fast-paced team where you’re encouraged to take on as much responsibility as you can. Your drive and imagination is your limit, not your job title. But these are the things that will be core to your role and will keep you busy.

  • Working on live chat, phone, email to solve challenging mainly technical issues for our customers
  • Identifying root causes for simple issues which cause customers to contact us repeatedly - and helping us solve them
  • Implementing creative solutions to proactively resolve potential issues for customers
  • Managing/contributing to projects aimed at optimising resolution workflows and improving the Customer experience
  • Being an advocate for our users and working directly with our Development team to help improve our products
  • Collaborating with other operational teams on internal escalation of issues and implementing new product features
  • Help us become an industry-leading and award-winning customer service team, where the emphasis is on delighting the customer rather than merely satisfying them

About Us

We started Goodlord because we wanted to make renting simple and transparent for everyone involved: the agent, landlord and tenant. We knew generation rent would lead to more tenants, with higher digital expectations and we were confident we could provide a solution.

And we did. Like all high growth companies it’s been a bit of a roller coaster journey, but we’re now stronger than ever, with over 800 happy customers and exciting new products. We have ambitious plans but with William Reeve at the helm alongside co-founder Tom Mundy and a brilliant team of over 180 talented Goodlordians we are confident we’ll achieve these.

Our values guide our decisions, the way we work, our culture and the people we ask to join the team. We work hard, have fun and support each other. We’re not afraid to make mistakes (we’d never learn if we didn’t) and we’re always looking to challenge ourselves. Our style is collaboration based on honesty, friendship and respect.

And this year we’re proud to have been recognised as a Great Place to work. No one likes a show off, but we can’t not shout about this. We’ve worked hard to make Goodlord great, and it’s important you know this isn’t just words on paper; Goodlordians have validated this which has led to us being accredited:

  • 9th in Deloitte’s UK Technology Fast 50
  • 20th Great Place to Work in the UK medium-sized businesses
  • 11th in the UK for great medium-sized workplaces for tech
  • 12th in the UK for great medium-sized workplaces for women
  • Excellence in wellbeing for our dedication to goodlordian’s wellbeing

It’s an exciting time here at Goodlord. If you’re inspired by what we’re doing, are up for a challenge and share our values, we’d love to hear from you.
