Customer Advocate at Buffer 243 views

Join the Customer Advocacy Team

For this role, we’re looking for a self-starter who’s outspoken, opinionated, and energized by the opportunity to take initiative and ensure our customers succeed at using Buffer. The right path to helping our customers isn’t always laid out clearly, so a strong ability to think on your feet is key.

We’re passionate about improving Buffer through feedback from customers and collaborating with engineers and designers to build solutions that generate the most impact. As Buffer is evolving into a multi-product platform, you can expect to demonstrate your expertise by directing customer interaction across each of our products, and exploring what it means to help them succeed at their business goals.

The Customer Advocacy team is 22 people strong, with team members spread out across Asia, Europe and North America! We stay in close contact with each other over Slack, Dropbox Paper, Zoom, and through a yearly in-person work retreat somewhere around the globe.

Buffer is an equal opportunity employer with teammates all around the world. We are actively working to create an inclusive environment and value diverse and non-traditional backgrounds. We’re united by Buffer’s values, and we celebrate our unique differences.

What You’ll be Doing:

  • Delighting customers creatively over email, live-chat, and social media support.
  • Driving customer success with Buffer products and helping customers achieve their goals.
  • Working closely with our Quality Assurance team to escalate bugs and customer feedback.
  • Collaborating with your team daily over asynchronous channels like email and Slack, and weekly over live video syncs.
  • Growing as a technical support professional as you learn the ins and outs of the Buffer platform.
  • Upholding our Buffer values and the principals of our code of conduct.

  • Strong verbal and written English communication.
  • Ability to organize, break down, and clearly articulate complex thoughts, ideas, and instructions in written form.

  • Ability to thrive in ambiguity and get satisfaction from helping others.
  • Ability to remain empathetic, even in difficult situations, and guide customers to efficient solutions.

  • Strong organizational and time management skills.
