Full-Time Client Receptionist

Job description

What are we looking for?

A Client Receptionist who easily connects and empathizes with our clients over the phone, and who serves as a critical hub of organization and communication to our internal support team. Must be courteous, organized, and professional.  


Where are we looking?

Boston, MA.


What type of job is this?

This is primarily a full-time position, but we also welcome those seeking part-time work.  Full-time shifts vary throughout the week, and can involve weekdays between the hours of 8am-8pm, as well as weekends between 9am-10pm.

Compensation is $20/hour for those working this position full-time.  Those who work part-time in this position can earn $15/hour. 

Work can be conducted remotely from home after one has been trained and demonstrates a strong proficiency in the position. 


Who would you report to?

Our Partner Support Manager. She's quite a bad-ass.


What will get our attention?

  • If you have a naturally friendly personality

  • If you can easily empathize with people

  • If you have prior receptionist experience

  • If you’re passionate about consumer technology

  • If you have experience using software to track and manage client data

What should you bring to the table?

  • The ability to work at least 35 hours per week, during weekdays (between 8am-8pm)

  • A naturally friendly and warm personality

  • Excellent verbal communication skills – this means you know how to “speak good”

  • Excellent writing skills - this means you know how to spell and use grammar and write well structured sentences that make sense to the reader and know how to avoid writing run-on sentences like this one.

  • Superb customer service skills - when someone calls for support, it’s because they have a problem.  They’re frustrated. Sometimes, they’re even pissed. You will need to be able to assure someone we’re going to take care of them. Every time.  

  • The ability to evaluate situations in the moment and make quick, appropriate decisions

  • A genuine passion for problem-solving

  • A self-starter mentality, and capable of working independently when needed

  • An unwavering work ethic - our clients and team depend on you

What do we bring to the table?

  • A team of aces willing to do anything for each other

  • Competitive wages  

  • Dog-friendly environment

  • Pseudo-healthy snacks

  • Lots of team socials (we hope you like bowling)

What would a typical day look like?

As a Client Receptionist, you will act as a first-point-of-contact via telephone for homeowners looking for assistance with their smart home systems. You will be responsible for answering, screening, and forwarding all incoming support requests inside and outside of regular business hours.

You will escalate incoming calls to our support team, or notate them for follow-up at a later time, based on the level of support for which clients are eligible. It is critical that you set a friendly and supportive tone for all end-users because we believe deeply in the value of providing a warm and personalized tech support experience.

You will work within our web-based ticketing system, interacting directly with our team of Technology Specialists to ensure that guaranteed response times and other important support procedures are consistently adhered to. You will assist in the upkeep of our ticketing system, ensuring that all support events are accurately documented.

When clients call in who are not already subscribed for a membership support package, you will walk them through their options and sell them the appropriate level of support that fits their needs.  This will require active listening skills, and a level of comfort with basic sales skills.

Most of all, you will learn best-practices for providing a kick-ass support experience in the burgeoning “smart home” market!


Curious if you’ll fit our culture?

  • Do you believe there’s always room for improvement? We are constantly in the pursuit of perfection when it comes to our client experience.

  • Do you always have a backup plan? Things rarely go according to plan, so it’s important to be prepared. Or have MacGyver’s cell number.  

  • Are you frequently putting yourself in others’ shoes? We pride ourselves on being empathetic to any partner’s situation, and give them the benefit of the doubt.

  • Do you always dot your i’s and cross your t’s? Attention to detail is a must. We don’t bend on this one.

  • Can you keep a secret? Good, because our end-users’ privacy is a top priority.

  • Are you happy to lend a helping hand? We’re a small, tight-knit group and at times all wear a number of different hats.

  • Are you transparent and do you prefer addressing the elephant in the room? We pride ourselves on being upfront and honest, and believe it’s one of the things that sets us apart from the pack.

  • Do you pick up the ball that someone else may have dropped? We’re looking for people that own the company goals beyond just doing their job.

  • Are you OK with making a mistake? We are too, as long as we learn from them and don’t repeat.
