We’re looking for a Director of Customer Support to lead a growing 13-person team. You’ll step into a department that has an absolutely stellar reputation for customer support, both internally and externally (don't take our word for it: read what our customers say about us on places like g2.com).
Our Customer Support team provides 24/5 live chat support to tens of thousands of digital marketing professionals who use our platform worldwide. As Director of Customer Support, you’ll report to the VP of Customer Success, working to ensure world-class customer service, fulfill departmental and company goals, and support a growing and talented team of staff. Like our customers, our team is global, and we enjoy a fully remote yet highly connected work environment: The culture is friendly, open, and collaborative, with regular Slack conversations, Zoom meetings, and shared projects. Outside of your department, you’ll work alongside senior team members from Customer Success, Sales, Marketing, Product, and Engineering.
As a growing company, a key priority is to continually put processes and structures in place to ensure the department scales smoothly, while maintaining world-class customer service for our users. If you have experience scaling teams and processes, we want to hear from you.
We place a high priority on creating a positive, nurturing, and collaborative team environment: We're specifically looking for someone with a proven track record of coaching staff members to achieve their best, and someone who knows how to rally a team to foster a tight-knit environment that crushes KPIs and wows customers.
