Community Operations Specialist - Social Media Support

Uber Overview

About Uber:

"Let's Uber home, shall we?" asked one friend to another after a long day at work.

Very few companies have the pleasure of offering a product so popular that their name becomes a verb.

Quoted ever so often as the world's most valuable start up and with its presence in more than 425 cities around the world, Uber's customer support becomes a very vital part of our business. It is safe to say that customer support is the core of our company. Handling our rider and driver communities' concerns, regardless of how tough, gruesome and challenging they might turn out to be is essentially one of the most powerful and direct ways that show an impact on Uber, as a brand.

We'll cut this story short and open the door for a brilliant opportunity instead! We're now hiring for Community Operations Specialists, who will handle rider and driver-partner concerns pan India, with utmost elan and efficiency and via emails and phone calls alike. Did we mention that this is essentially for social media support? Let's put all those social media skills to a great use here on.

Job Description

Always be hustlin': Hustle is in our DNA. SoRT is a team which works with Rider, IRT and the ECR team on email as well as phone modalities. The team responds publicly on 'Uber India Support' social media handle, regardless of the time or day. To manage the spread, we operate in 3 shifts and work round the clock. The team monitors and takes care of all support queries raised by the rider and driver partner alike, with utmost ease. The role also demands a high sense of judgement as one would be responding externally as 'Uber India', which ideally means that you could make or break Uber's image on social media channels like Twitter or Facebook.

An ideal candidate for SoRT is expected to not only have excellent verbal skills but also have the ability to hold an engaging conversation, while multi tasking to find the best possible solution to any given situation.
