Job Description

The Customer Support Team focuses on customer education, advocacy, internal knowledge sharing, and is a huge contributor to customer acquisition, expansion, and retention. Our product is crafted with care, so you won’t spend your time responding to the same bug over and over again. Instead, you’ll go deep answering interesting questions and providing troubleshooting assistance across a wide variety of topics (usage questions, data integrations, billing issues, etc.). Pingboard’s growth is both product and support-driven, and we pride ourselves on providing excellent support at all stages of our customer journey - from the demo and signup stage to providing refreshers and troubleshooting years into a customer’s relationship.

  • Use your technical skills (don’t worry, we’ll train you) to investigate and resolve customer problems, or escalate trickier issues to our technical team
  • Learn all there is to know about Pingboard’s plans and pricing to answer and resolve common billing questions and issues
  • Identify growth and expansion opportunities for new and existing customers and escalate them to our Customer Success team
  • Share your knowledge by contributing educational and troubleshooting materials (support articles, video guides) to our customer-facing help center and internal knowledge base
  • Propose and champion solutions to common pain points


To thrive in this role, you will:

  • Have 2+ years of Customer Support/Success experience, ideally at a fast-paced, B2B, SaaS company
  • Be an insatiable problem solver who is driven to get to the root of the issue
  • Listen well and provide consultative solutions to help customers solve organizational issues
  • Be engaging and enthusiastic in your communication with customers who occupy a wide range of professional roles and technical acumen
  • Possess a deep well of empathy that you share from generously
  • Work well as a deeply integrated team member, enjoy collaborative problem-solving and brainstorming
  • Have experience crafting clear, succinct help content on technical topics 
  • Be a master at time management, prioritization, and context-switching
  • Have in-depth experience with Zendesk, Intercom, Aircall, or similar support communication tools
  • Extra credit:
  • Technical ability to reproduce and diagnose customer issues and an eagerness to learn more
  • Familiarity with support-driven growth models and methodologies
  • Familiarity with HRIS platforms and integrations like ADP, Azure Active Directory, Okta, and G-Suite
