What's the opportunity?

As our customer base continues to grow around the world, so does our Customer Support team.

Were looking for a great People Leader to join our 9 existing Customer Support Leaders worldwide across our Dublin, Chicago & Sydney locations.

You will be leading a high performing team of Customer Support Specialists & Customer Support Engineers while managing all aspects of delivering an exceptional customer experience. Now is a great time to join - Intercom is experiencing a high rate of growth & you have the opportunity to jump on this rocketship to have real impact & be recognised!

Our way of providing support is based on the principles of continuity & trust & our style of communication is personal, friendly & fun. We are big fans of visual communication (think emojis, stickers, GIFs) - we believe that visual support is human support!

We use Intercom to support Intercom customers, so whether youre just starting out in your career or want to get a deeper understanding of fundamental customer motivations & how those are applied to building an ambitious, world-class product, this role provides that great opportunity. We have all experienced terrible customer service. Robotic agents running through a script of predetermined messages, never helping or sympathizing, just programmatically following instructions. Thats the opposite of who we are.

  • Participate in cross-functional projects with product engineering & design, marketing & sales acting as an advocate for both the customer & Intercom.

  • Work directly with your team to identify the most important challenges & synthesize the diverse feedback you hear from our customers, offering informed opinions on potential solutions.

  • Embody a sense of hustle (defined as the fight to make positive, regular progress & encourage that fight in others) - as this is key to the success of this team & Intercom as a whole.

  • You will help us solve a real need for leadership & in turn we will help you take your skills to the next level through training, support & mentorship from your manager Bobby Stapleton & the global CS management team.

Intercom is a high growth environment & you will thrive here if youre resilient, love supporting & developing people through change, & are able to provide systems & strategies to be successful & support your contributors in a meaningful way.

  • 3+ years experience working in a customer support/service capacity - SaaS or technology company highly desired but were open to speaking to people from all CS backgrounds

  • Minimum of 1 year experience in a role where you directly led & managed people

  • Strong communication & interpersonal skills & the ability to motivate & inspire are a must
