Job Description


This role involves interacting with our users via our customer support tool (Intercom), providing information about our features, troubleshooting technical issues, and recording information related to bugs in our issue-tracking system (JIRA).

This person will report to our Marketing and Operations Manager, and will also interact with our VP Marketing and our CEO.

In the initial few weeks there would be some ramp-up and training to understand the fundamentals of our product, how we use the couple of relevant online tools, and our ‘voice'.

We're looking for someone to work with us part-time, at least for the next few months, but possibly indefinitely. Ideally, the candidate would be available 1-3 hours per weekday (including during the December holidays).

Previous customer support experience preferred, but not required.

We'd prefer a candidate in the Bay Area who we could bring to our Palo Alto office for initial training, but we're also open to remote candidates.

This job could be not only an interesting way to earn money with a flexible schedule, but also provide a step up if you think you'll be interested in the future in fulltime employment in the Bay Area or the technology industry.

Pay is $20-22/hour, depending on experience.

PS: We're an end-user app, so we expect applicants to try it before contacting us. You can download our app here:
