About Close

The best sales automation CRM for inside sales teams

Actively Hiring
Close is a bootstrapped, profitable, 100% remote, ~80 person team of thoughtful individuals who value autonomy and impact.
We ❤️ startups & SMBs. Since 2013, we’ve been building a CRM  that focuses on better communication, without the hassle of manual data entry or complex UI. Our goal: double the productivity of every sales rep.
We are hiring a Customer Support Executive to help us provide an excellent service experience to our customers.

About the Role:

As a Customer Support Executive, you’re responsible for answering customer questions, resolving technical problems, and delivering customer experiences that represent the Close support philosophy.
This role requires a high level of independence and immediate responsibility. The main focus of a Customer Support Executive is our support ticket queue. Support tickets include general questions from our customers as well as system and integration debugging and more technical API support. As a team, we take a consultative approach to support and aim to provide guidance to help our customers use Close more successfully.
You will also be responsible for leading individual projects and initiatives outside of the queue, as the need arises.
Our team is small, collaborative and fast-paced: we bounce solutions off one another, support one another’s growth, and are passionate about solving problems. We rely on our Customer Support Executives to be able to manage their time well, communicate effectively and collaborate in a fully distributed environment.
Some of the tools we use are: Help Scout, Sift, Stripe, Twilio, Plivo, Guru, and Asana.
You will be reporting to the Director of Customer Support (Joseph Sterner) and will be expected to work Western/Central European business hours (BST/CEST).

About You:

  • You’re physically based in the BST/CEST time zones.
  • You’re highly proficient in the English language, both written and verbal.
  • You’re experienced working with remote teams from around the world.
  • You have at least 2 years experience working in a customer-facing support role at a technology company.
  • You have knowledge of the SaaS + CRM landscape. Perhaps you’re an experienced user of other sales platforms, or other programs frequently integrated with Close.
  • Bonus points if you have technical or coding experience: This includes VoIP, email, network management, APIs, etc.

In this role, you will:

  • Respond to customer support tickets by email and occasionally take support calls during Western/Central European business hours (BST/CEST).
  • Become an expert in the Close product including features, integrations, and all capabilities of the software.
  • Escalate issues to senior support staff and engineering as needed.
  • Prevent and detect fraud. Conduct systematic and periodic reviews of new user sign ups to confirm that they’re enthusiastic Close customers and not malicious or fraudulent users.
  • Review and act on any billing changes, updates, refunds or credits.
  • Identify bugs in the system and outline them for our engineering team to resolve.
  • Coordinate with our Customer Success team to provide extra support to large customers.
  • Maintain help center documentation and create content for new and updated features.

Tools We Use:

  • Help Scout
  • Sift
  • Stripe
  • Twilio
  • Plivo
  • Guru
  • Asana
