Customer Support Representative
At SemaphoreCI.com we're building the next generation code delivery platform for developers. The Customer Success Team at Semaphore plays a pivotal role in building relationships with our customers ranging from startups to companies like Salesforce, Toyota and Uber. Our main task is to keep them happy by getting the most of our service and we're looking for a professional to join our Customer Success Team on such a journey.
As a Customer Success Representative, you'll work on building stronger relationships with our customers and helping us make Semaphore even better. You'll advocate for the customer on a truly individual level in a sense of understanding our customers' needs and helping them achieve their goals. You should have a strong tendency towards streamlining the processes while keeping the human interaction in the first place. You don't need to have a technical background, but you can expect to become more technical and get better product understanding as the time goes by. You'll be on our front line, and we expect when our customers think of how great Semaphore is, they think of you.
The company is currently a ~25 person remote team distributed in 7 countries. We're bootstrapped, profitable and have a six-year track record of providing a product that customers love. Since this is a remote position, you should thrive in asynchronous communication and you should be able to develop working relationships with coworkers in different locations. Because of time overlap with the team, we'll consider candidates based in Europe only.
