Customer Service
Posted on Wednesday, May 3, 2023

Coming to the office in your sneakers, working together with amazing colleagues and staying late at the bar on Fridays?👟 Our chill work energy is already one good reason to apply, but at our Technical Support department you can also learn a lot about E-commerce and IT. ⭐At Channable you can enjoy the informal start-up vibe but you’re also part of a professional and globally growing company. Channable started only 9 years ago and in that short time we’ve become a market leader in the Benelux while growing our diverse team to more than 250 enthusiastic colleagues.🧑‍🤝‍🧑

Has it ever happened to you that the customer service was so good, you fall in love ❤️ with the brand and recommended them? This is what our technical support department is all about.

Your job

Our technical support team consists of over 55 young professionals and students. At support we are always there for all our customers with all their questions regarding our tool. Because we like to help our customers in their preferred language, we have several teams. You will be in charge of our 2nd biggest market: DACH (Germany, Austria and Switzerland).

As a team lead you’ll inspire, coach and train a team of 9 technical support professionals with different experience levels. You will be responsible that the daily support-tasks are performed efficiently, focus on the KPI’s and you recognize the most important issues in an instant. Next to that you, together with the other 4 team leads, will help guide the whole Support team with technical aspects and matters regarding our tool.

Your challenges

  • Monitoring and improving team goals and metrics such as CSAT, ticket SLAs (first and next reply time), call SLAs (missed calls %) etc. to keep them at our high standard;

  • Ensuring that the team is following established procedures and best practices and continuously improving processes to increase efficiency and effectiveness;

  • Managing and supporting a bigger team including hiring and onboarding new talents, coaching them and providing feedback on performance;

  • Acting as a point of escalation for (complex) technical issues or customer complaints in collaboration with our Senior Support agents and other teams;

  • Collaborating with other teams and departments such as Sales, Customer Success and Integrations / Development to improve overall customer experience and drive growth;

  • Staying up-to-date with the latest technologies, products and services to ensure that the team has the necessary knowledge and skills to provide high-quality support;

  • Besides all this you continuously think about how to improve our support team.

Your journey at Channable

First 3 months

The first 3 months will be a combination of getting to know our tool, our customers and your team:

  • You’ll start by following an extensive onboarding training to learn the basics about the Channable tool

  • In order for you to understand our business, market, customers and your team you will work along the team itself to help with fixing the different technical issues our customers encounter

  • Meet with your team members to get to know them and their individual strengths, weaknesses, and areas of focus

After 6 months

After 6 months you feel more confident in your knowledge about Channable, our tool and our customers. You’ll start investigating:

  • Based on your own experience in the first 3 months you’ll review the team's current processes and identify areas for improvement

  • Together with our Quality Specialist you look for patterns in the types of support requests we receive; is there anything in there to reduce incoming tickets?

After 8 months
Now it’s time to bring everything together and create focus points and a plan for the coming period:

  • You will bring up some areas for improvement during the weekly Support management meeting, including concrete ideas and a plan on how we should address them. This all with our end goal in mind: working in a more efficient way and increasing our customer satisfaction.

Who are you?

  • Have a bachelor’s or master’s degree;
