The GitHub Account Support team is looking for a full-time team member based in North America (US or Canada)! This person will join GitHub as part of our global support team and support our customers around the world. We're looking for an awesome team member to work a 5 day work week that includes Saturday and Sunday on a full-time basis (example schedule: Wednesday - Sunday).
When GitHub users have questions, they email support. We help people as quickly and awesomely as possible. Our Accounts Support team handle passwords, email verification, billing, legal, spam and abuse, account lockouts, fraud, and helping people choose plans. This requires a logical brain and a spidey sense for identifying and solving problems.
The most important characteristic of our support team is that we love helping developers. GitHub is a place for people to work better, together. Our job is to help. Support treats users the way we'd want someone to treat our friends.
Our support teammates have excellent writing chops: stellar grammar, charming written personality, and the ability to explain complicated things simply. We measure our success in swiftness, accuracy, and clarity.
Developers: this probably isn't the job for you, but perhaps you have a friend who would be a perfect fit. Send them this link. Thanks!
