About the role

Do you love helping customers?

Do you thrive in autonomous, fast-paced environments? Do you want to make a major impact at a high-growth startup?

As the Technical Support Specialist at OpenPhone, you’ll work autonomously to help troubleshoot and resolve tricky situations and product bugs. Alongside your team, you will work to assist hundreds of customers weekly, making sure they get the most out of using OpenPhone by answering any questions and troubleshooting technical issues.

You'll also collect product insights to help the engineering and design teams create the best product for our users. Here is a post about how we do it if you're curious. While your core responsibilities revolve around helping customers, you'll also work on projects to design and scale our customer experience team.

Here are some things you'll do

  • Support OpenPhone customers and prospects by answering questions via email, phone, and text (using OpenPhone, of course)
  • Identify problematic areas or inefficiencies in OpenPhone and make suggestions to features or copy to improve user experience
  • Become a product expert for all of OpenPhone's features and integrations
  • Gather relevant information for bug reports, diagnose and replicate customer issues, and escalate those issues to the engineering team
  • Provide technical assistance including account login issues, network connectivity issues, integration issues, and other product bugs
  • Translate customer needs and feature requests into recommendations for our product team
  • Create and update internal customer support documentation as needed

About you

  • We're hiring for a range of experience. Preferably, you have 1-4 years of professional experience. (Prior work experience at a startup is a plus!)
  • You have a Bachelor Degree or something you feel is equivalent
  • You've demonstrated skills and passion for troubleshooting technical issues resourcefully and with empathy
  • You have excellent problem-solving skills and love diagnosing and troubleshooting both known and unknown technical issues
  • You are a great communicator and have attention to detail
  • You have the ability to blend creativity, problem solving, and technical skills to support our customers
  • You can troubleshoot technical issues and are not afraid to get into the nitty-gritty
  • You are excited about being a part of an early-stage company and want to build alongside a team of passionate people
  • You're excited to continually improve and grow your skill-set, both inside the current role and grow beyond it
  • While you can be based anywhere in the world, most of our customers are in the US & Canada so the ability to work PST, CST, or EST hours is required for this role.

There's no such thing as a 'perfect' candidate. We're looking for an optimist with grit and determination, who is excited to face the challenges of a growing startup. OpenPhone is the type of company where you can grow, and we encourage you to apply to us even if you don't 100% match the exact candidate description.
