What's the opportunity? 🤔

The Customer Support team is primarily responsible for onboarding, educating, and supporting our customers on a global level. We start work the moment a customer decides they want to use Intercom, sticking with them every step of the way to ensure they get the most value from our product. Support Specialists are responsible for working directly with customers to help them get started and grow in using Intercom, answer product questions, track user feedback, report and escalate issues to engineers, and act as the bridge between our customers and our product design and development teams.

  • Owning customer communications and issues from initial contact until resolution
  • Becoming an encyclopedia of knowledge about how Intercom works and what it is capable of
  • Influencing the direction of Intercom, the product
  • Being the one responsible, along with the Support team, to ensure that all customers have a great experience with the product - a crucial part of the role is ensuring we make the product as easy to use, reliable, bug-free, and fast as possible
  • Working directly with product teams to identify current issues and, synthesizing the diverse feedback you hear from our customers, offer informed opinions on potential solutions

We like big thinkers with small egos who believe in our goal to build a uniquely impactful, long-lasting tech company.
