Customer Success Representative - CoverageBook

Brighton and Hove

Closing date: 06/04/2018

CoverageBook was founded in late 2014 and is based in Brighton, UK but we love to work remotely. From London to New York. The French Alps & Berlin. And Shoreham by Sea. Where I live. The South Downs are a beautiful place to get stuff done.

Born out from the simple idea that there must be a better way to do coverage reporting using technology. The tool started life as a side project from our day jobs at the marketing agency Propellernet.

We dreamt of building our own software business. So 6 of us left the agency and committed to the cause full time.

Over 1,000 PR teams now use our tool to showcase and measure the impact of their work. In style. And fast.

We like making hard things simple. You've got enough on your plate. So you'll get a report design worthy of showcasing your earned media. Delivered to you and ready to share (i.e. show off!) in minutes. With minimal faff required on your part to get it done.

Job Description:

We’re looking for a Customer Success Representative to join our team in Brighton, UK and take ownership of Customer Support. You’ll be the 7th person on our team. We’ve not hired despite our growth to 1500 customers in 3 years. So this is a big move for us & you.

We take the online support of our customers seriously so you’ll work alongside the team to deliver the very best experience. You will share support duties alongside the founder & makers of the tool. The standard is high.

If you’re a people person, have bags of initiative, an interest in Public Relations, and thrive on learning, then Support at CoverageBook is for you.

You’ll be onboarding, educating, and supporting our customers throughout their journey with us. From consideration through to daily use of the product we aim to make our customers happy through a great user experience.

You’ll be responsible for answering product questions, analysing trends in issues and working with the product and success teams to solve the issues through product design and educational content.

We provide prompt and high-quality communication to our customers and we’re looking for someone to lead that high standard with a smile. Or sometimes on rare occasions a private grimace. We’re only human.

Our customers have varying levels of technical ability so we’re looking for somebody that can be flexible in their response. With the ultimate goal of ensuring they get the most from the tool.

You have to be an excellent writer who enjoys writing. Our customers love when we get back to them with a clear, concise, and friendly answer. Great writing is key.

What You’ll Do:
You’ll work direct with some of the most interesting and creative PR teams in the world and help them be a success in their roles with the use of CoverageBook.

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Communicating efficiently and effectively with our customers through Intercom
  • Answering in the region of 50 messages per day (once you’re fully up to speed)
  • Owning customer communications and issues from initial contact until resolution
  • Becoming an encyclopedia of knowledge about how CoverageBook fits in the PR measurement workflow
  • Influencing the direction of CoverageBook, the product
  • Being the main person responsible in ensuring all customers have a great experience with the product — a crucial part of the role is ensuring we make the product as easy to use, reliable, bug-free, and fast as possible
  • Working alongside the Success team on educational content including FAQs, product videos, demonstration webinars
  • Tracking customer success data and reporting back to the team in Retrospective meetings

We built CoverageBook because we genuinely want to help others. We’re not in the tech game for a quick sale. We experienced a problem in PR reporting and built technology to solve it. And we now try and help as many people as possible with the same problem.

Are you a problem solver that loves to help others? Then you may just be the seventh member of the CoverageBook team…
