Posted on Monday, July 1, 2024
At Trengo, we pride ourselves on building software that helps businesses give their customers a great customer experience. As a Customer Support Specialist, you guide our customers in finding their way around Trengo, speaking from experience. You help customers create logical and efficient ways of working with Trengo to achieve the most value they can. You will be surrounded by a really dynamic, supportive, and empathetic team who will help you develop yourself.
At Trengo, we believe in a world where technology empowers the relationship between companies and their customers. That’s why our mission is to build the smartest customer engagement platform to replace repetitive work with meaningful conversations. How do we do that? Our software makes it easy for customer-facing teams to communicate with customers via multiple channels, all in one shared inbox. Email, Instagram, Facebook, WhatsApp, live-chat, you name it. With a Series A investment of $36M led by Insight Partners and Peak Capital and becoming one of the four official WhatsApp Business Solutions Providers in the Netherlands, we empower our customers to scale their businesses and optimize the channels their clients truly prefer.
What your day looks like
Let's break down this vision into a little taste of your work at Trengo:
• You manage inbound questions from all customer communication channels, including mail, live chat, WhatsApp, and phone, naturally by using our software.
• You are the go-to person for our customers if they want to know more about Trengo, anything from simple questions to advice, but also when they encounter an issue with the software.
• You collaborate with Customer Success Managers on bigger accounts and deep-dive into opportunities and problems where needed.
• You provide relevant information to the Technical Support team who will support you with more technical challenging questions or issues.
• You continuously look for ways to automate our workflows to drive efficiency and, with time, you become specialised in one or more aspects of our product.
