Shopify has redefined commerce, raising the standard for how companies of all sizes sell their products and services online and offline. With 1 million merchants in more than 175 different countries and the most innovative platform on the market, we continue to grow rapidly while constantly looking for new ways to impact and disrupt markets. Our support team provides the best business guidance, so merchants have the confidence to grow and develop their business and livelihoods.
As Support Advisor, (otherwise known as a Customer Support Representative) you will play a crucial role in making the above a reality for our merchants every single day. This work is incredibly rewarding and equally challenging. Our merchants have amazing stories filled with highs and lows, frustrations, and triumphs. It is in these moments and many in between that you would make an impact.
This opportunity is so much more than customer service. Using chats, phone calls and emails, youll be there to listen, teach, problem solve and explore growth opportunities with Shopify merchants. You are a business coach, helping merchants reach their full potential. This is your chance to embed the ‘kiwi number 8 wire’ mentality into an impactful role on a global scale.
Following 5 weeks of training and mentoring, you will begin responding to our merchants on live channels as part of a small team, who is there to support you. All Support Advisors work a combination of weekdays, weekends and holidays in a full-time capacity. You will do all of this whilst working from home. Shopify is the largest remote work force in New Zealand, and youll have the backing of a global, people centric tech company that looks after its employees.
