At Trade we want to inspire better brewing, and we believe that starts by connecting our customers to the best craft roasters. Through Trade, customers can discover new coffee and support local while small, independent roasters get access to new consumers nationwide. As part of the Trade team, you'll collaborate with a group of caring, passionate, and high-performing people to realize our vision while fostering a culture where everyone feels included and empowered to do the best work of their lives and feel good about the work they're doing.
Reporting to the Customer Experience Supervisor, Customer Experience Agents represent the Trade brand and deliver extraordinary service experiences for both our customers and roaster partners. You will have opportunities to problem solve across a wide spectrum — one moment helping a customer perfect their French Press technique and the next solving a technical question about e-commerce order processing. CX Agents communicate constantly on behalf of the company and represent the voice of the customer and roaster partners in our growing business. We'll count on you to build fiercely loyal customer advocates, even when things get busy or stressful.
