Role requirements

  • A drive to help people. In essence, you’ll be an on-call assistant for small business owners, entrepreneurs and freelancers. 
  • Deliver exceptional customer support across several platforms, including our in-app chat, emails, calls and social media.
  • Brilliant written communication. You articulate what you want to say with clarity, warmth and poise.
  • An eye for detail. Making sure identification and operational tasks are handled with vigilance and scrutiny — we are a financial service after all. 
  • Being direct. Solving problems with honesty and decisiveness. You’re unafraid of asking for help when you need it.
  • Empathy. Talking and listening to customers is the core of our service. You’ll get to the heart of what clients need or want, even when they don’t know themselves. 
  • Resilience to deal with complaints. This role can require bravery, politeness and endless patience, all at the same time. 
  • Collaboration know-how. You’ll need to consult with our wider team to smooth issues out of the business as we grow, and share feedback from our customers with product owners and developers.  
  • A business-facing brain. You’ll be dealing with questions on payments, invoice management and banking.
  • A thirst for knowledge. New features are rolled out all the time — and you’ll need to become an expert in them.
  • Self-motivation. There's a lot to learn, so self-motivation is key. 
  • Flexibility. Business happens 24/7, so we’re always on hand to help our customers. This means that shifts are flexible, and they'll change week-to-week. Most shifts are between 7am and 10pm. To help our customers over the weekend, you'll typically work one weekend a month.
