Support Representative (Weekend)

About Intercom

The way businesses talk to people online today is broken. Intercom is fixing it.
Intercom is the first to bring sales, marketing & customer service products to one messaging platform, helping businesses avoid the stiff, spammy status quo and have real conversations with the people that matter. Designed to feel like the messaging apps you use every day, Intercom is the only business messenger to let you talk to consumers just about anywhere: inside your app, on your website, across social media and via email.
Intercom invented in-app messaging in 2011, and today more than 13,000 businesses use Intercom to reach a billion people around the world. Intercom has 300 employees split between its San Francisco headquarters and its Dublin R&D office, and has raised $116M in venture funding.

What's the opportunity?

We're specifically looking for Support Representatives in SF to work an offset week, working both weekend days and taking off two days during the week.

The Customer Support team is primarily responsible for on-boarding, educating, and supporting our customers on a global level. We start work the moment a customer decides they want to use Intercom, sticking with them every step of the way to ensure they get the most value from our product. Support Representatives are responsible for working directly with customers to help them get started and grow in using Intercom, answer product questions, track user feedback, report and escalate issues to engineers, and act as the bridge between our customers and our product design and development teams.

You will be talking with lots of our customers on a daily basis. The team is responsible for ensuring that all customers have a great experience with the product. A crucial part of the role is ensuring we make the product as easy to use, reliable, bug-free, and fast as possible. You will be working directly with product teams to identify current issues and, synthesizing the diverse feedback you hear from our customers, offer informed opinions on potential solutions. Hustle, defined as the fight to make positive, regular progress and encourage that fight in others, is key to the success of this team and Intercom as a whole.

We like big thinkers with small egos who believe in our goal to build a uniquely impactful, long-lasting tech company. 

What will I be doing?

  • Communicate efficiently and effectively with our customers. We rely on Intercom to do most of our support but you'll also be talking to customers on the phone every now and then
  • Own customer communications and issues from initial contact until resolution. We pride ourselves on getting out in front of customer issues and proactively making sure our customers are getting the most they can from Intercom
  • Become an encyclopedia of knowledge about how Intercom works and what it is capable of. Our product team moves extremely fast so this is an ongoing challenge
  • Influence the direction of Intercom, as well as the product 

What skills do I need?

  • A genuine enjoyment of technology: You're technically curious, you enjoy learning about new products & how things work
  • An understanding of internet culture
  • Previous experience in a troubleshooting environment and be a great problem solver (You're also really good at Googling!)
  • The ability to rapidly switch gears while retaining focus on the bigger picture
  • Passion for talking to customers all day, every day
  • Excellent communication skills. You need to be a very competent writer with the ability to explain complex topics in easy to understand and concise language [English]
  • Unlike other companies, everyone in Intercom talks directly with customers. Candidates must be ambitious (every day counts!), eager to learn and improve themselves, kind, without ego, and with a sense of humor

Bonus skills & attributes

  • Basic understanding of web technologies (HTML, CSS, JavaScript, APIs)


We are a well treated bunch, with awesome benefits! If there’s something important to you that’s not on this list, talk to us! :)
