Our business has grown rapidly, and we’re looking for our first full time customer success hire to keep our users happy and successful with the product.

This role is perfect for you if you’ve worked in customer success / support before in a remote team, and are looking to take your career to the next level.
Why this role?
- Work on a product people love and rely on to run their independent businesses: Tens of thousands of the worlds best creative freelancers and teams rely on Bonsai each day to run their businesses and stay independent.
- Shape the product in big ways, every day: The support team is key link between our customers and the product development team. The support team doubles as our UX research and product marketing / ops teams, helping us understand and serve our users better. Your voice carries lots of weight when we decide what to build next.
- Join a unique company at an exciting time: We’re a small, fully remote team serving a large, enthusiastic user base with the privilege of being profitable so that we can grow thoughtfully and take big swings.
- Explore and develop new skills fast. Because we’re small, we all take on many different roles that are new to us, whether that’s writing, UX design, creating new processes. Your mind, abilities, and product sense will expand every day.
What’s the day to day like?
Like any fast growing company, no two days are the same, but you can find yourself:
- Answering customer questions via Intercom and email to help customers be happier and more successful with Bonsai
- Improving our reply templates, support content, and all other customer facing materials
- Managing our existing part time support team, including scheduling and general feedback
- Synthesizing user feedback and requests into actionable insights for our product and development teams
- Working with the product and development team on new feature releases
Who is a good fit?
You’d be a great fit for this role if you are:
- Excellent at written communication: you’re a clear yet concise communicator in all forms of written communication (emails, chats, documentation), and bring the right mix of authoritative yet friendly and helpful
- Very process-driven: do you hate doing the same things twice? Do you like to share your learnings and time saving tricks with others to make them more effective? The ideal candidate will own the entire support process to ensure users save the time getting the answers they need, and that our team can scale along with those users.
- Have worked remotely before: we’re a fully remote company (although we get together often!), and we’ve found the best candidates have worked in, learned from, and thrived in a remote environment before.
