Customer Success Specialist
At Port 443 we work together, laugh together, and eat a lot of donuts together. (Have you seen our Instagram? It’s basically a food blog.) Our products (My Music Staff, TutorBird & AthletaDesk) are always evolving, making for an exciting and dynamic environment. Every day, we’re connecting with thousands of users all around the world. If you ask what they love about us, they’ll tell you that we really listen to their needs and go above and beyond to help them. Our members are at the heart of everything we do. Their feedback and ideas help to shape our products, and at the end of the day, we’re here because of them…
…and because of the donuts.
You’re a people person (don’t worry, we also hate that phrase and we promise not to use it again). You’re friendly, patient, and willing to jump in to help a teammate who needs it. You’re flexible and always ready to hit the ground running, figuratively and literally – we just got a treadmill desk for the office! You’re a strong communicator that can explain some complex invoicing/accounting concepts with simplicity and clarity. You’ve got an eye for detail, so you’ll spot that typo and fix it before you hit send. You’ve got a good sense of humour – feel free to tell us your most groan-worthy G-rated joke in your job application for bonus points 😂 (And you don’t mind that we still use the 😂 emoji even though apparently it’s not cool anymore!)
- 2+ years experience working as a customer success specialist
- A diploma or degree in a relevant field
- Technical knowledge – you must be able to troubleshoot, investigate, and think outside the box (brownie points if you have a basic understanding of HTML and CSS)
- Exceptional written and verbal communication skills!
- A customer-centric mindset
- An abundance of patience and empathy
- Ideas! We want someone who’s excited to share their thoughts and suggestions with the team
Your responsibilities will include:
- Communicating with customers by telephone and email (so if you hate talking on the phone, this probably isn’t the job for you…)
- Holding 1-on-1 onboarding sessions as well as product demos for the new members
- Recording all incoming feedback and responding to customer issues in a timely fashion
- Maintaining an enthusiastic and dedicated approach to understanding customers’ needs
- Educating customers on the full value of our products and services
- Serving as the voice of the customer and providing internal feedback on how we can better serve them
- Working closely with the development team to identify bugs and track feature requests
- Travelling to exhibit at trade shows (up to 10% travel may be required) once the pandemic is finally over
Meet the Team!
Bailey is an awesome member of our support team who can always be found on the phone crushin’ it! Which, in the context of our Customer Success team, means going above and beyond to help our customers on the phone and by email whenever they have a question or run into an issue. We asked Bailey to describe herself in a few words and she said “wine, coffee, and true crime.” We then made a mental note not to catch her on a bad day 😛 During the pandemic, Bailey’s been keeping busy taking walks every day – she’s up to around 100km/week (putting the rest of us who haven’t gotten off the couch in months to shame 🙈).
Chris is an artistic soul, working through creative solutions to our customers’ technical issues by day, and creating beautiful paintings and sculptures by night! 🎨 He’s always going out of his way to be as helpful and friendly as he can (which comes naturally to him!), so it’s no wonder our customers love it when they get him on the phone to help solve their problems. If you want to live vicariously through him, ask him about his amazing trip to Cuba!
Larisa is our incredible Customer Success Manager who does everything she can to support the team and ensure we’re focused on our customers as people, not as numbers. Though she describes herself as someone who talks too much, we disagree. Her stories make lunchtime so much more enjoyable and she’s always got a good idea just waiting to be shared. We say “keep talkin’!” In her spare time, she’ll be found spending time with her family or going to a Ticats game (or spending time with the fam at a Ticats game! 🐯)
Matt is a support rock star, spending his days answering tickets and walking our members through their questions on (sometimes very long…) phone calls. He’s also part of our onboarding team, where he helps new users get their accounts set up and ready to go. Outside of work, Matt enjoys travelling, trying new food (or just eating in general 😋), and long walks on the beach. Want to hear some really cool stories? Ask him about his time spent teaching in Japan!
Natalie is the go-to for beep-boop music and spoiling Marvel movies. As the office Zillenial, she always brings a different perspective to our lunchtime chats (which is our way of saying some of us are too old to understand any of her references 😭). During the workday, she’s busy going above and beyond to help our members over the phone, email, or on Zoom while onboarding new users. Natalie spent most of the pandemic enjoying the perks of the Atlantic Bubble, working temporarily out of New Brunswick!
Pedia is a Customer Success Specialist who always puts the customer first. After a long day at work, she loves to go home and cozy up with her Nintendo Switch to destress. But that’s not all she does! Throughout the pandemic, she passed the time riding her bike and baking lots of cinnamon rolls (still waiting for her to bring a batch into the office…) We all know about chicken soup for the soul, but in Pedia’s case it’s true – she’d have chicken soup every meal for the rest of her life if she could! 🍲
Todd has the perfect dad joke for every conversation and the best track record on Untappd. He’s also the guy who handles our escalated technical support tickets and IT. If you ask the support team what that means, he’s the one who saves them when a really complex technical question or bug comes up. If you ask the developers, he’s the one who brings them bad news and problems all the time. Todd recently celebrated 5 years at Port 443! 🎉
