Job Title: Customer Success Associate

Location: Lagos
Job Type: Full-time
Experience: Entry-level

About the Role;

  • Customer support at OkadaBooks is not measured by the number of tickets you reactively respond to or how fast you reactively resolve complaints.
  • At OkadaBooks, customer service is a proactive relationship, it’s anticipating and preventing problems before they happen, it’s knowing the birthdays of key authors and celebrating it, it’s doing things beyond the computer screen like writing letters to customers and hugging readers … it’s beyond tickets.
  • To execute this, you have to be a people’s person with a sprinkling of technical curiosity and a focus on killing your KPIs with love.
  • He / She will report directly to the Team Lead, Business Operations and work collaboratively with the Customer Service team.

The specific responsibilities of the Customer Success Associate will include:

  • Helping customers via email or chat to ensure they have the best experience possible (users tend to send 60+ emails every day), troubleshooting their problems and answering their questions.
  • Writing documentation to help users help themselves (all the documentation on our help site is written and maintained by the support team:

Who’s a good fit for this role?

  • 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 love solving problems. Every customer is different, many times radically so. You relish being able to meet their specific need, and also solving their problems that may have gone unsaid.
  • Has great communication and customer service skills.
  • Has a flexible and resourceful attitude to work challenges.
  • Is comfortable working in a startup organization that’s growing and evolving.
