Paddle are looking for a Customer Support Specialist to join their team.

We are looking for someone to act as a partner, consultant and advisor to our growing base of software clients. You will be working with technology companies, offering top-notch customer support and creating long term customer relationships. And above all, you will be helping real people trying to solve real business problems. 

Ideally, you have a strong sense of empathy and you care about people as much as you care about getting your work done. You also have a natural fluidity and thoughtfulness to your written and verbal communication. A good sense of humour is also always a plus. 

You will be part of a team of 5 specialists, reporting into the Success Operations Manager who will empower you to have a voice as to where your department is heading in the future. This is a great opportunity if you care deeply, genuinely and passionately about customer support and about the role it plays in making a customer-centric team successful.

In this role, you will be working standard US hours (EST) for 5 days a week. You will also be covering weekends on a rotation with the current team. ( 3 days during the week and 2 days on the weekend )

What you'll do

  • You will respond to and resolve customer queries through all our channels (including email, chat, Twitter, Facebook and phone), empowering our customers to get the most out of Paddle and grow their businesses. 
  • You will drive our Voice of the Customer program to advocate for our software sellers and improve Paddle by incorporating user feedback. 
  • You will increase customer satisfaction and build loyalty by providing amazing, personal customer support.
  • You will help to develop our team and Paddle through sharing knowledge, creating first-class documentation, contributing to blog posts, experimenting with innovations and discussing best practices.
  • You will escalate critical support issues to the appropriate internal channels.

We'd love to hear from you if

  • You have 1+ years in online customer support, preferably supporting a SaaS product.
  • Basic knowledge of HTML, CSS and JavaScript and experience using browser developer tools to investigate issues with seller's implementations.
  • You have experience using and testing APIs as well as giving customer support on API related queries.
  • You are used to working remotely and are highly organised in communicating with teams across different time zones. 
  • You are a proficient English speaker. 
  • You enjoy interacting with and helping people and seek to empower and educate our customers. If there’s a roadblock, you want to smooth it away.
  • You bring solutions to the table, not just problems. (But you aren’t afraid to point out where we’re going wrong)

It'd be great if

  • You have worked for a SaaS company, ideally offering customer support to other software companies.
  • You are comfortable with a little chaos and uncertainty. We move fast and sometimes decisions are made without all of the information.
