SAAS Support Specialist

As a SAAS Support / Customer Experience Specialist (AKA Gearhead), you’ll be at the vanguard of ShipStation’s customer interaction. You will tackle emails, live chats, and phone calls. Simultaneously, you will build and improve our customer experience structure to preemptively address customer concerns before they happen. You’ll accomplish those tasks by developing an exhaustive understanding of the application and working closely with ShipStation’s team of awesome engineers, designers, sales and marketing folks. If you are interested in being part of a cutting-edge SaaS software start-up that is loved by its customers, take a moment to apply!

You must have:

  • Superb communication skills: You understand that effective communication is about more than what you say, it’s about taking the time to listen and understand. You can make complicated concepts sound easy or describe in detail the simplest of interactions.
  • A deep understanding of software and the web: You won’t need to know how to code, but terms like PHP, SQL, and JavaScript shouldn’t be foreign to you. You can quickly learn complex procedures, troubleshoot potential bugs on the fly (pun intended), and visualize customers’ screens from their description alone.
  • An empathetic desire to help: For you, a new inquiry isn’t just a case to close, but an opportunity to understand someone’s story and make their life better. Our purpose as a company is to help online businesses to thrive.
  • Prior customer facing experience: Whether it was working the cash register at Starbucks or working as an Apple Genius, you must have experience working with customers.
  • Strong interpersonal skills – ability to work with people with a variety of skill sets
  • Insane ability to “Get Ship Done!” – Can you make good choices that serve both the customer and company? We need folks who are passionate about delighting and retaining customers.

Would be great to also have experience with:

  • B2B or SaaS support
  • Content creation for blogs and support articles
  • Running your own e-commerce business
  • Willing to accept hugs from customers
  • Anything else you’re awesome at! (we’d love to know)
