Doubledot Media is a New Zealand-based company creating online tools and training for people looking to start their own online businesses. We’re based in Christchurch, but the majority of our team work remotely from various places around the world. (Living in the future FTW!)
We have a full-time customer support position available to work with our SaleHoo customers.
SaleHoo is a carefully curated directory of over 8000 wholesale suppliers. Our customers use our directory as a safer and easier way to find wholesale suppliers for goods to sell on eBay, Amazon or in their own stores.
Our new customer support representative will play a vital role in answering customer queries, providing guidance (and sometimes a little common sense) and generally making sure our members receive all the help and care we can give them.
We're looking for someone with great (written) people skills, a fair amount of cleverness, the ability to Get Things Done, and a genuine desire to help the good people of the internet succeed.
You'll be responsible for:
Responding to customer and pre-purchase emails about our SaleHoo.com products.
Moderating and answering questions on our members' forum.
Searching the internet for quality wholesale suppliers to add to our wholesale directory.
Contacting wholesalers to to verify their authenticity, and to gather information for our directory.
Using our directory to create tailored lists of wholesalers for customers wanting to sell a particular kind of product.
Solving technical problems the customer might be having with their account.
Recording FAQs and other information as required.
Searching our database for customer information and updating records.
Excellent written English and a friendly manner in writing. You should be able to build a rapport with customers via email.
Common sense and the ability to "read between the lines" to understand what customers are concerned about.
Empathy and patience to deal with customers with different backgrounds and levels of technical ability. You'll be clear, patient and pleasant.
Meticulous attention to detail. Your spelling and grammar should be top notch.
Good time management skills. Since this can be a remote working position, you'll need to be organized, motivated, and (dare we say) a "self-starter".
Good internet research skills for digging up hard-to-find suppliers, and for sniffing around to make sure they're legit!
The ability to learn new software and systems. You'll be working with our customer support software and content management system, so it's good if you're a quick learner and not fazed by learning new tools.
A background in selling online, or experience in the wholesale industry is highly desirable.
Neat things about working with us:
Work from home (or from our Christchurch office)
Relaxed, ego-free, family-friendly work culture
If you'd like to come work in our Christchurch office in Ferrymead, you also get:
Weekly Friday BBQ (or sushiBQ, or ThaiBQ)
Novelty coffee mugs
An extremely comfortable chair
Tap dancing seagulls
How to apply
We're going to level with you here: We usually get a lot of applications, and a lot of them are not very inspiring.
We're looking for people with good problem solving skills, good communication skills, and the willingness to go the extra mile for our customers, so here’s what you need to do.
Record a short (1 - 2 minute) cover letter video and upload it somewhere where we can see it. Tell us a little bit about yourself, and why you think you’d be great for this role. Bonus points if you can include a pet in the video!
