Company Description

At Literati, we believe in the power of great books. We’re on a mission to curate transformative literary experiences for every reader: anyone who dreams, anyone who wonders, of any age. There are some stories no child should live without and no adult should ever forget. 

Job Description

Literati is a consumer company that ultimately will live or die based on the customer experience. You will be the first line of contact with the most important people we ever talk to — our subscribers. Your job goes way beyond closing out tickets and responding to emails (although you should love coming up with creative responses to customer service queries). You will personally be responsible for driving the most important metric that drives our business — customer retention. This will require thinking critically about the feedback given by customers, being data-driven, creative, dedicated, and summarizing and bringing critical information back to the team.

Additional Information

We seek people with drive and a touch of alchemy—and if that sounds like you, you should join us.

At Literati, we value the power of reading for all: anyone who dreams, anyone who wonders, anyone of any age, from any background. We are dedicated to cultivating and preserving a culture of inclusion and connectedness that sees, reflects, welcomes, and celebrates the innovation and talent of a diverse array of people.
