EmpowerDB is a web-based database used primarily by domestic violence and sexual assault service providers to collect, manage, analyze, and report information about the work they do. Each organization that uses EmpowerDB has a system customized to meet their specific needs. In addition to being a user-friendly, secure, and versatile database, what makes EmpowerDB stand out is the highly personalized and comprehensive support each customer is provided.
We are seeking a full time customer support representative to join our team. We offer a flexible schedule but the hours worked should fall roughly within the typical Monday-Friday 9-5pm ET work day. The exact hours can be shifted slightly to accommodate the team member’s time zone. However, we will only consider candidates from North or South America.
Tier 1 Technical Support
The successful candidate will be trained to recognize and respond to common technical issues that our customers encounter. While no advanced technical experience is required, a strong comfort level with technology is essential.
As a customer support specialist, you will be responsible for providing prompt and professional assistance to our customers. In the event that a customer's issue requires more advanced technical expertise, you will gather all relevant information in a highly organized manner and escalate the issue to the appropriate team member.
In addition to providing technical support, this role will also involve building reports for our customers. The successful candidate will need to have the ability to build simple queries that help our customers assess demographic and service data.
We will train the new hire on EmpowerDB's report tool, which is a user-friendly drag-and-drop tool that doesn't require any programming knowledge.
To excel in this role, the ideal candidate will have strong analytical skills and the ability to interpret and present data in a clear and concise manner. Additionally, a keen eye for detail and a commitment to accuracy are critical for success in this position.
- Fluency in English
- Strong writing and communication skills
- Ability to work on a team and multi-task, all while working from home
- Prior customer service experience
- Prior database or other technical experience a plus, but not required
- Reliable internet connection
