🤔 Why are we opening this position?
GitBook is a modern documentation platform. Our ambition is to empower teams through a new document standard, suited for modern work and collaboration. GitBook is now used by over 1M users and thousands of teams such as Adobe, Netflix, Decathlon, or Google and we’re currently working on a next product step to redefine “core team work”.
With this in mind we’re looking for a Support Generalist to help us build a reliable product thanks to continuous improvements arising from delivering an outstanding support experience to our users.
🙌 What will you be doing ?
As a Support Generalist you’ll join our growing support team of empathic folks: Steeve
(Developer Support Engineer) and Petros
(Head of Support).
Our ambition is to provide an exceptional world class support (one of those we can write a book about!) to our users. By joining our team early on you’ll have a chance to shape how we do support together.
On a daily basis, you will have a direct impact on our users. Here are a few examples of how your day-to-day will look like:
– Provide support to our customers using an email based helpdesk app
– Triage all incoming support requests (we get about 300-400 support requests a week)
– Maintain healthy levels of first response time, resolution time, and customer satisfaction
– Improve already established Support processes and contribute to the creation of new processes to improve productivity
– Channel customer feedback and link it to existing feedback topics or create new topics
– Troubleshoot customer related issues
– Reproduce and document bugs to report them to our Engineering team
Here are a few questions we got recently to give you a sense of what you will be dealing with day-to-day:
– I need you to refund me because XYZ.
– As I was writing something I lost my changes. Where are my changes?
– Can I edit content in Markdown?
– What’s the best way to organize my documentation when I have multiple versions?
– How do I change the logo of my docs?
– Can I set up a custom domain? How?
– Why XYZ isn’t working the way I expect?
– Something is broken? Here are the steps.
– Can I use SSO?
– Can you cancel my subscription?
– How can I delete my account?
– How can I create a new organization?
– Git sync is broken! Please help.
– I can’t log into my account.
