What you’ll be doing

  • Customer support — first and foremost is the customer-facing side of this role which includes handling chat, email, and phone to help customers and patrons get the most out of Ludus. You’ll be a Tier 1 support representative, so your role is to be the first point of contact for all customers.
  • Customer success — you’ll be tasked with improving our knowledge base and creating support videos, along with coming up with your own ideas to improve the customer experience. You will need to think outside the box and always be ready to answer the question: How does what I’m doing turn customers into advocates?
  • Maintaining our reputation for great customer support — we constantly hear from our customers on how much they appreciate not only our product, but also our customer support. Through great customer service, we’ve turned many of our customers into advocates. For proof, check out our Happy File where we keep track of the many positive messages we’ve received from customers.

Traits we’re looking for

(In no certain order)

  • Written and verbal communication skills — you will be asked to communicate with customers via chat, email, and phone while also writing help articles, putting together help videos, and other support resources.
  • Autonomous decision making — ability to make confident decisions on your own that benefit customers and the team.
  • Strong grasp of technology and SaaS products — Ludus is web-based software that offers a lot of flexibility and customization to our customers, so you’ll be required to understand the ins and outs of the software. Sometimes there are multiple ways to achieve something, so you will need to understand how to determine the best solutions, which requires knowing the product.
  • Task management — you’ll be juggling multiple aspects of customer support and will need to be organized enough to be able to jump from helping a customer to completing a task you were working on beforehand.
  • Prioritization — ability to prioritize tasks especially those that improve the customer experience and push the company forward.
  • Ability to wear multiple hats — while your focus will be customer success, we’re a small team and all jump in to help where needed.
  • Teamwork — you’ll work closely with others on the team to help escalate and solve customer support inquiries.
  • Passion for helping people — able to think through solutions, think outside the box, and guide customers to help them achieve the most out of Ludus and ensure their productions are a success.
  • Self-Motivation — continuous learning to generate autonomy over the product.
