Our team is growing and we’re looking for a seriously support-loving person to add to the mix. This person will provide on-going customer service support across our Products team for a growing suite of WordPress plugins through the forums we run and manage on our website, but have hit a spot where extra help building relationships with our customers will make a world of difference.
We’re looking for someone for around 10 hours a week to help us go the extra mile when customers reach out for help with some of the less tech-y side of things, like email support, processing of refund requests, assisting with account access, license key administration, downgrading accounts, pre-sales questions, Nonprofit Partnership Program, WordPress Meetup Organizer Program.
However, we won’t lie. This will be a fast-paced position where a successful person will be genuinely happy to help customers with a myriad of questions. There are more than 700,000 active installs of The Events Calendar running on websites around the world and many of them have questions that require timely assistance. Support is at the center of everything we do here at Modern Tribe, we want you to help our community thrive.
Modern Tribe is committed to a culture that embraces diversity and inclusion. We foster an environment of collaboration, open engagement, fairness and respect regardless of differences in age, race, disability, national origin, gender identity, religion, sexual orientation or veteran status. As a hybrid workspace ranging from distributed contractors to traditional employees, we value the unique perspectives and experiences of our global team.
We come from all walks of life. We are small business owners. We are tattoo aficionados and 80’s movie buffs and ex-pats. We are homeschool teachers. We are single parents. We are musicians, college drop-outs, and entrepreneurs. We are travelers, feminists, runners, volunteers, and makers. We are a Modern Tribe.
Everyday we strive to fulfill our motto: live well and do good work. We hope you will consider joining us.
