Customer Success Specialist

Remote, Full-time. Based in Australia.

Raisely powers online fundraising for ambitious charities across the world. We’re a mission-driven remote team, spread across 5 countries and 7 cities.

We’re growing rapidly, but we’re not just any high-growth startup. Here you’ll have the flexibility of working from wherever you’re happy, supported by a passionate, talented team. You’ll use your skills to help charities of all sizes raise money to fund their important work, all while building a well-balanced company that puts values first.

If you’re excited about the challenge of a high-growth startup, and want your work to have a huge impact on the world, then we hope you’ll consider working with us.

A bit about us

We’re Raisely! We help charities raise money online. Our platform helps charities build fundraising campaigns, run donation appeals, and nurture their supporters. We make it easy to get started and scale-up, without needing technical help.

We started Raisely because charities have been underserved by technology for too long. We set out to change that, and so far we’ve helped raise over $100m.

We’re a team of 13-turning-20 as we rapidly grow our company (and impact). With your help, we’re hoping to raise $1bn in the next few years and rapidly scale out, supporting charities small and large in countries across the world.

Oh and one more thing. We walk this impact talk. We’re a proud B-corp, and purpose is baked into our constitution. We’re carbon neutral, and we’re starting our anti-racism journey to ensure we’re actively undoing centuries of systemic racism.

A bit about you

Raisely’s Customer Success Specialists are our phenomenal front-line support team for our customers. They are product experts who understand best-practice fundraising, and how to bring a campaign to life on our platform.

You’ll be responsible for working closely with customers over our email/chat support channels. On any single day you will be helping a charity set up a campaign, troubleshooting an issue you’ve found, tweaking the design of a page in CSS, or writing clear and helpful documentation for our customers to find and use.

Beyond the day-to-day, you’ll play a pivotal role in improving Raisely. You’ll regularly bring customer feedback into our product roadmap, and partner with our engineering team as new features are built. You’ll have opportunities to share your expertise on webinars, our blog, and in best-practice guides and videos.

This is a full-time, permanent role. Raisely is a remote company. We’re giving preference to Australian candidates for this role, but it’s open for anyone in a compatible timezone.

  • Brainstormed ways to improve our customer experience with the rest of your team.
  • Beat your teammates in trivia while wearing an elf costume.

Now about you...

You’re a brilliant writer
You love writing. You can break down complex concepts into clear prose. You’re able to relate to your audience, and inject your unique personality into your words. You’re able to quickly provide clear and precise information, and you know how to write with structure when needed.

You thrive on solving problems
Anyone on our Customer Success team will tell you that no day is the same. You’ve gotta love understanding a problem and digging into it independently. Digital products come naturally to you, and you love playing around with something and getting it to work by yourself.

You know some basic web coding
You know basic HTML and CSS. We don’t need you to be able to build a page from scratch, but you will need to do things like tweak layouts, change backgrounds and colours, and debug CSS/HTML code. Javascript is a bonus!

You’re empathetic
You’ll spend every day speaking to passionate people, helping them create campaigns with a substantial impact in the world. For many of our customers, it’s their first time doing something like this. You’ve gotta lean on your empathy to understand their goals, and support them in a way that will work for their unique situation.

You care about making a difference
Yeah, we’re all here because we want to make the world better (and by that we mean a carbon neutral utopia with world peace and just laws, where all people are treated the same with equal opportunity to thrive). So you’ve gotta want that too!

Ok, and why work with us?

You spend nearly 2000 hours of your life at work, each year. That’s a huge commitment, so we can promise that every hour you’re spending with Raisely, you’re making the world a better place. Pretty great perk, hey?

Plus, the more you help us grow, the bigger our impact gets. And by that we’re talking hundreds of millions of dollars big.

Working at Raisely is unique. If you have a great idea, we’ll help you make it happen. You’ll be a valued partner in building an incredible company to work at.
