We’re seeking a driven individual who wants to break into a startup, and loves helping people and solving problems, to provide warm, efficient, and effective support to Tinkergarten leaders and families. This is a great opportunity if you care deeply and genuinely about supporting a fast growing, dynamic operation and helping to make a people-centered organization successful. We welcome all to apply, because we believe that diverse teams are stronger teams.

Responsibilities:

  • Respond to and resolve phone calls and emails from customers, quickly and effectively
  • Increase customer satisfaction and build loyalty through providing amazing, personal customer support.

  • You love learning about new ways of doing things
  • You’re a positive person and know how to look on the bright side
  • You’re comfortable with a little uncertainty. We move fast and sometimes decisions are made without all of the information.

Experience and requirements:

  • 2-3+ years in a customer service position (bonus for online support experience)
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Passionate about helping others
  • Comfortable with common online applications (google suite etc.) and able to quickly learn new ones
  • Persistent and detail-oriented; will search until the proper answer is found
  • Spanish speaking a plus, but not required

This is a full time role, and can be based in our downtown Northampton, MA office, or remote. Availability for either a staggered Tues-Sat or Sun-Thurs schedule, or to work some evenings and weekends, is a plus.
