Customer Support Specialist

We believe customer obsession builds the best products, so our mission is to ‘enable product teams to make better decisions through the power of customer understanding’. We think what we’re building is an exciting, brand new category of software. This product-led growth strategy has seen us expand to over 2,000 customers like VMware, Shopify, Autodesk, GitLab, Porsche, Canva, and more.

We've achieved all of this from Sydney, Australia – with only a few key individuals working to support our customers with their product questions and requests for help. In early 2022 we will be establishing a presence in San Francisco to enable us to better serve our global customer base, and fuel continued customer growth. You will join us as our first customer support hire outside of Sydney and you will be a critical contributor in shaping our North American presence. You'll work with the team in Sydney to become a Dovetail expert and learn the knowledge and skills to effectively support our passionate customers.

While we work to establish a physical office in San Francisco, we are open to individuals starting remotely with the view to be a key contributor in developing our local presence, office culture, and enabling our continued customer growth in North America. We expect to be able to have someone start in this role from January 2022.

What you’ll do

As Customer Support Specialist at Dovetail, you will be expected to:

  • Manage all customer communications and support. Own all customer communications and support issues from initial contact through to resolution. Our main support channel is email support, but you'll also own any support enquiries that come via Twitter and from our Slack community. You'll triage all inbound conversations, and escalate conversations to relevant teams such as product, sales, legal, etc.

  • Be a close partner to the team in Sydney. You'll work with your counterpart and the team in Sydney to learn and get equipped with the knowledge and skills to effectively and efficiently support our customers with their product questions and requests.

  • Become a Dovetail expert. You'll develop intimate knowledge of how Dovetail works, and what Dovetail is capable of, so that you can effectively help our customers.

  • Communicate efficiently and effectively. You'll need to communicate with our customers to explain complex topics in easy to understand and concise language.

  • Improve our self-service help documentation. You'll own and maintain our product help center, identifying opportunities and prioritizing improvements based on customer feedback. These improvements will drive efficiencies in your own role and help our customers resolve their own issues before they contact us.

  • Escalate engineering issues. You'll partner with the on-call engineering contact to escalate any support issues that require technical investigation. You'll triage and gather all the relevant details about a potential issue to help them investigate efficiently.
