Job Description
• Your day will be busy responding to customer request that come in via phone or email. Some requests are quite simple, while others will draw on your excellent troubleshooting skills and may involve experts from throughout the company to complete. In a typical day, you will handle about 20 issues—although there is no typical day!
• You will be a reliable source of information for our customers and will empathetically listen to their needs while plotting a course of action to resolve their issue or fulfill their request.
• All issues are tracked and documented in our ticketing system, and you will also have several systems that allow you to perform troubleshooting or make service configuration changes. Your attention to detail and documentation of your work is important in providing top quality service and in recording information that may be useful down the line in completing orders or future troubleshooting activities.
• Phone communication skills and excellent writing skills are both important, and when coupled with your ability to diagnose and problem solve in a systematic way, will directly result in our goal of providing exceptional service.
• Because your workflow is unpredictable, you will exercise ongoing judgment about which issues are the most important, and the ability to multi-task will come in handy.
• Your learning curve will be steep. You will be expected to become proficient in working with our systems and understanding our products over a six-month period.
