Customer Success Internship

Role Description
Our customer success team is the toggle between our non-techie clients and our techie team. They handle new client implementation, account management, training, and everything in between. If it involves one of our users or buyers – they’re on the case!

About You

  • You should be able to handle ambiguity. Not all tasks will be straightforward. Sometimes we don’t know what we’re looking for, but with a little elbow grease and a lot of research, you’re able to work through it.
  • You possess superb verbal and written communication skills. Whether it’s writing user training, documenting product features, or speaking to a user – you’re able to adjust for the audience.
  • You’ve held a position that required customer service skills. You’ll be in on customer calls and will often be the point of contact for follow-up. You’ll need to be warm and approachable.
  • You have a background in project or event planning. You know the importance of maniacal attention to detail and have the motivation to produce high-quality work.

Role Requirements

  • Currently enrolled in a 4-year degree program
  • Microsoft Excel chops, preferably with a deep love of pivot tables
  • Presentation know how including use of Microsoft PowerPoint

Our past interns have set a pretty high bar, but we’ve seen them start programs still in place, transfer to other teams in the company, and receive full-time offers to name a few.
  • Training. Kick off your internship with an immersive onboarding program. You’ll have a 1-on-1 with each department head including our CEO in your first few weeks to learn about their role, how it works in the company, and how you can work with them. + You’ll be invited to our Friday meetings where you’ll hear about a different topic each week.
  • Good stuff. Oh and if you’re not already sold – we have lots of free jazz like snacks, drinks, lunches, and bootcamp sessions.
