Community Manager

Sqord is looking for a Community Manager to join its start-up team in Durham, NC.

The Position

As a Community Manager, you will be the voice of Sqord’s customer service process. It will be your job to help ensure that all of Sqord’s customers love their experience, feel like a true part of our community, and know that we will make sure we address any questions or concerns efficiently and effectively.

You will be the initial point of contact for customer questions, troubleshooting, or a simple hello from a happy user. You will need to be able to effectively work with our schools, youth organizations and corporate customers just as easily as our thousands of kids and consumer customers.

To be clear: you will not simply be answering phones, replying to emails and shuffling on support tickets. You will need to be able to listen and respond to customer insights, pass on feedback appropriately to the development and sales team, and help make suggestions on strategies for improving the overall product and support of the Sqord platform.

This will require you to maintain a high level of knowledge of the current and future Sqord product; best practices in schools, youth orgs and homes; ideally experience in building online communities and account management skills. The ideal candidate should be personable, highly motivated, a self-starter, detail oriented, and obsessed with delivering.
