Project Description

GTeam FZ LLC provides software support services to customers who use our 25+ software products and our Level 1 support agents are the face of the company to our customers. We are looking for Level 1 support agents who are passionate about helping customers and if this appeals to you, then you should strongly consider this position. Specifically, we are looking for Level 1 agents who fit the following profile:

Skills and Experience:

Customer Orientation – You must be able to look at issues from the customer’s perspective and empathize with their situation, so you can be an effective agent and advocate.

Customer Support Ticket Handling Skills – You need to have experience interacting directly with customers through phone calls, emails, a ticketing system and/or live chat to be effective in this role.

Business Orientation – 95% of our customers are businesses. You don’t need to be an expert in their specific industry, but you will need to be able to understand the impact each issue has to their business based on the information they provide, so you can effectively prioritize the customer issues assigned to you.

Communication Skills – You must have excellent written and verbal communications skills and strong listening skills, so you can ask good questions and provide viable solutions to our customers. You must be fluent in at least the English language.

Time Management and Prioritization – As a Level 1 agent you will have at least 10 issues in your caseload at all times, so you will need to manage your time and adjust your priorities as your caseload evolves.

Technical Skills – You don’t need to be a programmer or engineer in this role, but you do need to have above average computer skills, so you can learn the functionality of our products and resolve basic operating system and/or database related issues.

Personality attributes:

An energy and passion for helping others

An inclination to seek innovative and/or unconventional solutions to problems

A sense of compassion for customers and others around you

An extroverted personality or at least a high level of comfort in interacting with new people

The ability to be agile and flexible in dealing with rapidly changing processes and priorities

A positive and resilient mindset

This job is only offered on a Full Time basis (40 hrs/wk) and Level 1 agents work primarily US Eastern work hours (8am to 6pm), as this is when most of our customers are available. We do have a significant number of customers in Europe as well and have some flexibility for earlier work schedules.

We pay $10/hour for these positions ($500 fixed-price payment for a trial job if that trial leads us to hire you). We work with you through one of several approved staffing and payment platforms which will charge a percentage fee on your gross earnings. For United States citizens and permanent residents, we pay $8/hour because we have to cover W-2 payroll processing through these platforms.
