Hi - I'm Gin, Senior Billing Manager at Customer.io! I'm looking for a Billing Specialist to join our growing Operations team.

Customer.io is looking for detail-oriented and empathetic Billing Specialist who enjoys customer-facing work along with creative problem solving. As a Billing Specialist at Customer.io, you'll put our values of empathy and transparency at the core of everything you do. Billing plays an important role on the team and isn't only about the dollars and cents bottom line, but combining the need for process with a customer service touch. You'll be working with our customers closely through a streamlined process, as well as collaborating across departments such as Sales, Engineering, and Operations. As the first line of support for billing questions from customers and team members, you'll manage the day-to-day of making sure we're billing our customers accurately and transparently.

Some things you'll do

  • Respond to and own customer inquiries and liaise internally to get answers to customers
  • Monitor and respond to alerts on our billing systems, flag issues and make corrections and adjustments to accounts
  • Send and monitor the status of open invoices for our Premium customers
  • Help to manage our overdue processes with empathy and transparency
  • Help our Customer Success Team answer billing questions and process renewals for Premium customers
  • Help our Sales Team close deals by getting contracts out the door and building custom pricing plans

About you

  • Creative problem solver who can understand the customer problem - you'll own the questions that come to billing and work with customers and team members to find balanced solutions.
  • You're the kind of person who loves to dial into the details. In billing, that extra zero, that checkbox, that decimal point, they matter.
  • You'll have strong written communication skills and be comfortable having uncomfortable conversations. Billing can be delicate and complex, you'll likely find yourself balancing clarity and precision with empathy and friendliness.
  • You're a resourceful person who enjoys solving problems independently but isn’t afraid to ask for help or collaboration when you need to.
  • We take a customer focussed approach to our billing. Ideally, you’ve worked in customer-focused or a customer-facing role.

What we're looking for

  • You'll need to have overlap with your Manager based in the UK. UTC-7 to UTC-3 would be ideal.
  • Bonus, but not required: If you've worked with Stripe or a similar payment gateway - shout about it in your application!
