Customer Service - Event Expert
SeatGeek
 Portland, OR

Do you love helping people? Are you thoughtful, humorous, and creative? Are working under pressure and communication two of your best skills? If you answered “yes” to all of the above, keep reading!

As a member of our Customer Experience team, you’ll be the voice of SeatGeek to our customers. You’ll resolve customer issues through a high volume of customer contacts (phone, email, and chat)  and stay in the know about SeatGeek’s latest features. We are passionate about providing ridiculously good customer service, and our Event Experts are some of the best in the industry.

Right now, we're looking for candidates who are available to work in 8 hour shifts (between 8am and 8pm) and can also commit to working weekends. The Customer Experience team assists our users 7 days a week, 365 days a year, so some holiday work will be required.


What you'll do

  • Be the first point of contact for customer questions through phone, email, and chat , with availability to work on the weekends. 

  • Use metrics and consumer insight to help make SeatGeek better, and work with your managers to evaluate your performance amongst your peers

  • Work daily with tools like Talkdesk, Zendesk, our internal admin, Slack, Google business tools, Github, Looker, and more

  • Go above and beyond for our customers

  • Attend 1 on 1 and group strategy meetings weekly

  • As you exceed expectations on your core phone, email, and chat responsibilities over time, you will earn the ability to phase more specialized project work into your job, and be entrusted to use your time to make changes to benefit CX and SG as a whole
