About the role
Please note: We are currently accepting applications for start dates in Summer, 2019.
The Customer Success Representative role challenges and supports you, so that you can help empower a diverse range of entrepreneurs around the world through live chats, phone calls, and emails. Working remotely allows you to join a growing tech company, without relocating. Although we’re spread across various countries and timezones, it doesn’t feel like it. We’ve invested in small teams, so you have the personal connections and tools to thrive in your role here. After all, we help businesses thrive and grow, so we want you too as well!
A few more details:
We keep it real - It’s not just tech support, it’s people support. It won’t always be easy, but if you're resourceful, ask questions, and enjoy having genuine human conversations, you may have just found your dream team.
We’re remote first - Working remotely with Shopify makes it possible to be part of a growing tech company, without relocating. Do fulfilling work, make a real impact, and own your role with the Shopify Support Team from the comfort of your home.
We’re business coaches - We don’t just solve problems, we help businesses grow and thrive. Our team doesn’t do pushy sales, but we do strive for needs based sales solutions to help merchants get on the right Shopify plan to scale their business and succeed.
We work together - We may not be in the same cities, but we work like we are. We leverage our unique backgrounds to empower each other and foster a community where all people can feel a sense of belonging.
