About the Contract Customer Support Role
Are you the person your friends call when their computer isn't behaving? Do you use all the latest, coolest web apps? We're hiring a remote agent on a 40hr/week contract which might include evening or weekend hours. It's essential that you have strong verbal and written communication skills, since you'll be writing back and forth with customers all day. You'll need strong problem solving skills and personal initiative to track down challenging problems. And a healthy dose of stress-tolerance to handle the occasional frustrated soul!
On a typical day you might be called on for a simple password reset, complex publishing advice, or to QA a new website functionality, debug a customer's problem, and interface with Scribd's engineering team.
