Have you ever tried to hire a plumber? How about a house cleaner? If you have, chances are it took you way longer than it should. In the era of instant-everything, you shouldn’t have to waste an entire afternoon researching, calling and vetting local service professionals whenever you need one. The market for hiring them is huge — $1 trillion in the US alone — but the process is inefficient and largely offline.
Thumbtack is transforming this experience end-to-end, building a marketplace that matches millions of people with local pros for almost any project. In making these connections, not only do our customers get more done every day, our pros are able to grow their businesses and make a living doing what they’re great at.
These customers and pros come from all walks of life and every county in the country. We want our team to reflect that. If you come from an underrepresented background in tech, we strongly encourage you to apply. We challenge ourselves every day to make this a place where you can thrive just the way you are, so we can build a product that does the same for our customers and pros.
Today, millions of customers use Thumbtack to find and hire small businesses across the US. Named one of the World’s Most Innovative Companies in 2018 by Fast Company, Thumbtack is a highly dynamic product that’s also building local economies and stronger communities. One of the key factors for our ongoing success is #CustomerObsession.
We focus on providing a great experience to our users and prioritizing the most important work first. We are looking for customer-obsessed team members who are engaged, innovative, and who will partner with our pros and customers from start to finish to resolve their concerns. We will train you on skills that will help convey the value of Thumbtack, empower you to help professionals build successful businesses, and assist customers to complete the projects central to their lives.
The Customer Success Specialist will be responsible for making sure that all professionals get best-in-class support whenever they contact Thumbtack’s Voice Customer Support channel. Delivering true consultative service and partnership will be vital to this role to ensure that every concern the professionals contact us about is a good representation of Thumbtack’s values and guidelines. By addressing their concerns correctly and accurately, we help set our professionals up for success.
