We’re looking for a Customer Support Consultant to join our team! Wyzetalk is a mobile-first employee engagement company that connects large businesses with their dispersed, non-desk workforce to improve communication, increase engagement and boost productivity.

Are you curious about new platforms and technologies and have a desire to deliver world-class customer service? Are you excited by the idea of owning a problem and providing a quick resolution? Can you deal with ambiguity and keep up with the pace of a company whose cycles are measured in hours, not weeks?

The Role

The customer support consultant will work as part of a support team delivering 24/7 first level support to our global customer base. Support will be delivered via chat, telephone, email, and our internal service desk. The support consultant is expected to learn the Wyzetalk content management system, to enable them to understand the problem, and in some cases even solve the query with the client. Additionally, during quiet times, the consultant will be required to create support materials such as FAQs, support documentation and also to assist the Quality Assurance, Testing and Professional Services teams.

Work Hours

Initially it is expected that the support consultant will be working 12 hour night shifts, 3 days on, 3 days off etc. Over time, the timing, frequency, and length of the shifts may change as the team grows, and support requirements change. Due to the shift nature of the work, the candidate is required to have their own transport.
