The Opportunity

Our Product Support team takes great pride in providing our customers timely, efficient, and thorough assistance. As a member of the Product Support team focused on our Buildout Marketing platform, you will troubleshoot and analyze customer emails and live chats to provide them with an effortless customer experience. You should be driven to help customers and have the curiosity to dive deep into an ever-changing product to learn it inside and out.

Are you a self-starter who wants to contribute fresh ideas, refine existing processes, and are passionate about helping customers and building relationships? We’ve got a great culture, and we’re looking forward to you adding your own influence to all that we do.

How You’ll Contribute at Buildout

  • Deliver an exceptional customer experience through one-on-one interactions in the support email queue, live chat sessions, or phone calls.
  • Based on the customer’s specific need, you will decide what method of communication will be most helpful for the customer, whether that means sending them links to Help Center articles (some that you will get to create when there are new features or updating FAQs), creating personalized visual instructions with GIFs or screenshots, transferring them to a live chat, or setting up a screen-share session
  • You’ll collaborate with other departments including Product and Development, on behalf of our customers, to resolve and escalate issues, gather feedback to improve the product, or QA new features
  • You’ll educate and empower our customers to become more comfortable using the platform
  • You’ll optimize our Help Center documentation, share how-to’s and best practices with the team, and proactively look for ways to improve processes   
  • You’ll actively listen to our customers in order to provide solutions which address their root problems

Of course what is outlined above is your ideal day-to-day, but things may shift based on business needs and other projects and tasks could be added at the discretion of your manager. 

What You’ll Bring to Buildout 

  • Experience working in a customer-facing role and strong passion for making customers successful; experience supporting multiple SaaS products preferred 
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills with ability to explain complex topics to customers in a simple way
  • Solutions-oriented by nature with the motivation to find issues and take the initiative to resolve them 
  • Strong time management and organization skills with the ability to manage and prioritize varied client requests
  • Desire to learn and grow on the Product Support team, both deeper into the technical product knowledge or into leadership opportunities
  • Nice to have:
    • Experience with JIRA, Zendesk, or other customer support tools would be helpful but it’s not required
    • Experience working in a Tier 1 customer support role
    • Knowledge of Commercial Real Estate industry

 

We know there are great candidates who won’t check all of these boxes, and we also know you might bring important skills that we haven’t considered. If that’s you, don’t hesitate to apply and tell us about yourself.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past. For more information about this form or the equal employment obligations of federal contractors under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
