Your responsibilities will include:

  • Responding to an average of 8 email tickets per hour.  Some will take less time, some more, and you will need to be comfortable averaging a complete interaction every 7 minutes.

A typical day will involve:

  • Working through new email tickets and follow-ups.
  • Following up voice tickets (voicemails), ensuring our security processes are used to identify customers.
  • Keeping an eye on our volumes and ensuring we don’t miss our response goals. Pulling in team members to help when necessary.
  • Updating our knowledge base by improving articles so that customers can better help themselves during the hours we’re not available.
  • Managing your time, health and sanity with regular breaks throughout the day.
  • Before you head off for the day, tidy up what you’ve been working on and hand over any outstanding issues to your colleagues.
  • Then, when the time comes, catch the elevator to the ground floor, help an elderly lady cross the street, and head on home to pursue all your many non-bitcoin interests.

In applying for the role you should:

  • Demonstrate clear and succinct written communication skills.
  • Show that you can translate technical concepts in to language that is easy for our customers to understand.
  • Highlight your passion for, and understanding of, excellent customer service.
