Lever was founded to tackle the most strategic challenge that companies face: how to recruit and hire top talent. We’re building the next generation of hiring software that companies like Netflix, Yelp, Cirque du Soleil, Shopify, and Eventbrite rely on to grow their teams. We've rethought the talent acquisition paradigm and are the innovation leaders in our space and looking for the right people to join us as we scale.
The Customer Service & Support team is integral to the retention success of our customers and as Lever grows and expands, so does the team. We are small and mighty with plans to continue to scale with the business-this means working through ambiguity and helping to shape the team as a foundational team member. You’ll also truly have a voice as to where our department is heading in the future.
As the newest member of the Customer Service team at Lever, you will have the opportunity to provide high level, white glove customer service to our ever-growing customer base. In return, you will help us understand our customers’ needs by reporting emerging trends learned from working incoming tickets, chats and phone calls. We are looking for someone who is a highly motivated self-starter and who will bring with them a solid background in providing high-level technical customer service in a fast-paced, ever-changing contact center environment.
Our perfect team member is passionate about working closely with customers to find solutions that maximize their satisfaction with our product suite. You thrive in problem solving, finding efficient ways to work through complex customer inquiries, and are extremely comfortable communicating with customers via written and verbal channels. You’re incredibly organized and have strong time management skills. It's critical that you have a mindset for using technology and can quickly learn how to use new tools (most importantly: Lever).
Customer Service and Support is made up of Customer Service Representatives, Technical, and Product Support Specialists working towards a common goal of assisting our customers with inquiries regarding the Lever suite of products. We are a highly motivated team who are relentless in the pursuit of providing an amazing customer service experience to every customer. We thrive on collaboration but are able to work as individual contributors as we work towards scaling our department as Lever grows.
