Customer Champion - API Specialist (Eastern Hemisphere)

Remote
Employment: Full Time Experience: Mid-Level

We're a team of 100+ people living and working remotely in 15+ countries. We're working hard to build a diverse and collaborative team that can empathize with each other to solve hard problems and build a product we can be proud of. For the past six years, Zapier has been helping people across the world automate the boring and tedious parts of their job. We do that by helping everyone connect the web applications they already use and love.

We get together 2-3 times per year for a company retreat, and benefits include great healthcare, dental and vision coverage, 401k retirement plan with company match, profit sharing and 14 weeks paid leave for new parents.

This role is for someone who can who can support our growing team during European, African, and Asian business hours (UTC to UTC +6). If you're located in the Western Hemisphere, please apply here.

Hi there! We're looking for someone who loves helping people solve tricky technical problems. If you love interacting with people on a daily basis to help them learn how to optimize their work then read on…

About You

You're empathetic to users and can easily put yourself in their shoes. You realize that not everyone has the same skill set and that smart people sometimes make mistakes. You make customers feel empowered after interacting with support and not stupid because of a small mistake.

You’re passionate about technology. You love trying new tools and learning everything you can about the technology that powers them. Maybe you’ve completed a code bootcamp or built your own API integration to solve a problem. The prospect of supporting hundreds of different applications, diving into logs, and troubleshooting HTTP requests excites you.

You obsess over the details. Maybe you have a one emoticon and one exclamation point rule of thumb for every email. Maybe it's only two sentences per paragraph. Either way, you make sure each word and each punctuation mark makes the customer delighted to work with you.

You love solving problems. Every customer is different, many times radically so. You relish being able to meet their specific need, and also solving their problems that may have gone unsaid.

You love to write. Almost everything at Zapier is done via written communication (both with customers and between teammates).

You're persistent. Support at Zapier is much different than at many software companies. It's not the same questions over and over again, and often involves researching technical nuances of the apps we support. You love the opportunity to solve new problems every day and won't give up when you don't know the answer right away.

You love doing things efficiently. At Zapier, the work you do will have a disproportionate impact on the business. We believe in systems and processes that let us scale our impact to be larger than ourselves.

You love to set your own course. At Zapier, we have quick team meetings each week and one-on-one meetings every month and then we go make things happen. You get to make things happen without someone saying so.

We believe giving the best support to our customers is important. For that reason, we only consider candidates who want to dedicate at least the next year or two to giving great support to Zapier customers.

Things You Might Do

Zapier is a small, fast-growing, and remote-first company, so you'll likely get experience on many different projects across the organization. That said, here are some things you'll probably do:

  • Help customers via email or chat to ensure they have the best experience possible (teammates tend to send 60+ emails every day), troubleshooting their problems and answering their questions.
  • Help solve the trickiest tickets escalated by our support team.
  • Work with the product team to build tools that will speed up and increase the quality of support at the same time.
  • Share you knowledge and experience with the team by helping answer questions in support channel on Slack.
  • Experiment: this is a startup so everything can change.
