We believe giving the best support to our customers is important, and it takes considerable time for anyone new to be able to reach that standard. For that reason, we only consider candidates who want to dedicate at least the next year or two to giving great support to OwnerRez customers.


Will I fit in well? Yes, if...

You’re highly skilled in customer service. We’re looking for at least 1-2 years experience in technical customer support, or, 1-2 years in a technical/engineering position or training and also 1-2 years doing non-technical customer service. A sales background is preferred, but not necessary, as you will need to know how to handle objections and identify opportunities.

You're empathetic to users and can easily put yourself in their shoes. You realize that not everyone has the same skill set and that smart people sometimes make mistakes. You make customers feel empowered after interacting with support and not stupid because of a small mistake.

You obsess over the details to make sure you haven’t missed anything useful - to the clients, or to your future colleagues who’ll need to respond to the client next time they ask for help.

You love solving problems. Every customer is different, many times radically so. You relish being able to meet their specific needs, and also solving their problems that may have gone unsaid.

You’re professional and courteous in presentation.

You're persistent. Support at OwnerRez is much different than at many software companies. It's not just the same questions over and over again - sure, we get those, but we try to engineer our way out of them so they don’t have to be asked. Most questions involve researching technical nuances of our service, because the easy questions are already well documented. You love the opportunity to solve new problems every day, and won't just give up when you don't know the answer right away. You aren’t afraid to ask for assistance instead of stumbling blindly on your own.

You love doing things efficiently. The whole purpose of OwnerRez is to have a massive efficiency impact on our clients’ businesses, and we want our internal operations to be the same. We believe in systems and processes that let us scale our impact to be larger than ourselves. If something is manual and repetitive, something needs to be done to change that, which means communication is essential.

You are comfortable with setting your own course. At OwnerRez, we keep meetings to a minimum because we need to spend our time making things happen. Most of the time, you get to make things happen yourself without someone saying so.
