Your Impact

At Time To Pet, Customer Support is essential to our mission. The top priority for our Customer Support team is to make our clients as successful as possible while utilizing Time To Pet and to ensure their experience is positive by succeeding their expectations.

As a part of the Customer Support team, you’ll be directly responsible for ensuring the happiness of our clients by managing support requests, improving support processes and acting as an advocate for Time To Pet. You will play a major role in the success of Time To Pet through enriching our customer support and other special projects.

The Ideal Candidate

You’re empathetic to clients and understand that not everyone shares the same level of technical skill. You have the unique ability to make clients feel empowered and successful when they have a question; not silly or stupid. You are a problem solver willing to go the extra mile to ensure that a question is answered or a problem solved. You have the ability to listen and connect real world questions with solutions through software. You are detail oriented, professional, and understand that support is often the first line of communication with our customers. You enjoy communicating with people and can balance being friendly with getting a job done in a timely manner. You have a skill for writing and enjoy creating new content. You enjoy being efficient and looking for new ways to increase efficiency and improve your job and your skillset. Most importantly – you are a self-starter. While our ideal candidate would be based in Austin, TX - we are open to remote employees and all employees have the opportunity to work from home.

Things You May Do

Time To Pet is a small software company so you will likely get to work on many projects. We expect that the majority of your time (75% or so) will be spent doing the following:

  • Help our clients via email and live chat to answer their questions, troubleshoot their issues and ensure they have the best experience possible.
  • Provide occasional telephonic and screen share support that can include answering simple questions to full product demonstrations.
  • Write and review documentation for our Knowledge Base to help clients get answers to their own questions quickly.
  • Record video articles to supplement written articles for the Knowledge Base.
  • Enhance our support processes through research in collaboration with other teams at Time To Pet.

Your remaining time will be spent working on special projects to help enhance the overall business of Time To Pet. This can include:

  • Identifying business/process improvements outside of general support.
  • Working on special projects to help make these improvements.
  • Writing content that is relevant and helpful to our clients (like email courses or Academy articles).
  • Supporting other team members with their projects.

How You Will Work

Time To Pet is a semi-remote team meaning that your primary work space can be at our office in Austin, TX but you do have the opportunity to work remotely. While we do offer flexible work hours, our normal support hours are Monday - Friday from 8am to 7pm CT so we would expect your normal working hours to be within this time frame. While rare, occasional flexible weekend support hours may be required. 

We use tools like Slack to keep in touch with team members, Help Scout to manage our customer support channels, Dialpad for phone calls, Dialpad Meetings to conduct screen share calls, and proprietary systems to manage our client accounts.
