Senior Customer Support Specialist, Postmark



Customer Service
United States
Posted on Friday, May 26, 2023
We are looking for a Senior Customer Support Specialist to support our growing customer base in getting the most out of our products. Our view is that customer success is about a subtle shift from focusing on making excellent products to making excellent users.
This position will support Postmark, a cloud email infrastructure product that allows businesses to send and receive transactional and bulk emails from their applications. Customers can also use Postmark for their transactional emails within ActiveCampaign (our parent company). We aim to make email seamless, dependable, and easy for product teams and marketers. Postmark customers have a range of backgrounds so you should be comfortable supporting non-technical users as well as highly experienced developers.

What your day could consist of:

  • Being the first point of troubleshooting customers when they reach out for assistance
  • Helping new customers get up to speed quickly, triaging issues, and answering technical questions from potential customers
  • Educating customers on industry best practices
  • Creating customer-facing help documentation and user guides
  • Maintaining our internal knowledge base
  • Communicating to customers primarily via email, and at times via chat and zoom
  • Participating in on-call rotation for Account Compliance
  • Representing the voice of the customer to our product, marketing, and engineering teams
  • Helping our team identify where we can better meet the needs of our customers
  • Collaborating with your teammates to troubleshoot complex problems
  • Empowering developers to do their best work—and having fun doing it.

What is needed:

  • You know what an API is (or you’re interested in learning how to support an API-based product) and are comfortable answering questions about topics like DNS settings
  • You’ve previously thrived in customer support for a SaaS product with a minimum of 3 years experience
  • You have an understanding of email technology and authentication topics like SMTP, SPF, DKIM, and DMARC
  • You are fluent in English and can demonstrate clear and concise written communication skills
  • Your wide skill set allows you to get up to speed quickly when learning new products
  • You’re patient and empathetic towards others with a strong desire to learn and teach
