This role is a unique opportunity for someone passionate about both social media and providing an exceptional customer experience, where you'll engage with customers to solve problems and build community on our various social platforms.

  • Understand the need to meet expectations, rise above them, and go that extra mile for customers

A bit about you: 

  • You have exceptional verbal & written English language skills - The main responsibility of this role is responded to questions and comments on social media channels, so we'll be evaluating your communication skills throughout the process starting with the application... put your best foot forward with flawless spelling and grammar!

  • You have previous experience providing high-volume customer support online (via social media, chat, community management, etc.) is a definite plus - to be clear, this is a customer support position, not a content creation role

  • You're flexible. Open to working days, nights, and some weekend shifts, between 9:00am and 10:00pm at the latest. While your scheduling preferences are taken into consideration, the scheduling requirements can change based on our customer's needs, so we can't guarantee you your preferred shift and shifts can change over time (your first month or so would be a regular 9am-5pm schedule while you complete your initial paid CS training)

  • You're a master behind the keyboard. You're an expert typer, at least 45 words per minute, and you quickly pick up how to navigate and use new software and online tools - Knowledge of tools like Hootsuite, Agorapulse, Sprout Social, or similar that support social customer support would be helpful

  • You're cool under pressure. You take charge in challenging situations and you keep your composure if things get tense - a fast-paced, ever-changing environment is where you thrive

  • You're growth-oriented. You understand that an open feedback culture is there to help you grow. You crave information and love learning new things. You challenge ideas, not people. You see every challenge as a learning opportunity and you're adaptable, learning new systems and processes quickly

  • Most importantly - you understand that having a great working culture is everyone's responsibility, so you treat everyone with respect, you always give a helping hand, and you let our values guide you
  •

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.

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.
