Customer Experience Specialist



Full-Time remotely working on Pacific work hours (11 PM - 7 AM PH)

Job Type:


$18, 000/yr

Join our Team as a Customer Experience Specialist

At, we believe partnering with humans leads to the best outcomes. This is what makes the way we communicate with and relate to our users so important. After all, what does any startup need to do? Create a product people want and talk to users. So think of this as the “talk to users” department. It’s at least half of what we need to do (and we need to do it well). Excel here and we have a huge opportunity ahead of us!

To apply, submit your assignments (questions at the end of this page) via email to and cc Use "Applicant: Customer Experience Specialist" as subject.

Qualities central to this role:

  • Disposition: warmth, a desire to connect with others and an ability to do so

  • Eagerness: to learn, to support users and the entire CX team

  • Inquisitiveness: inhabiting a state of curiosity to determine what users want and come up with ways to strategize and problem-solve in the moment

  • Superb written communication in English: ability to shift tone, be informal and clear at the same time

  • Responsiveness: so much of what we do is time-sensitive. Are you ready to dive in when users need you? Anticipate users’ needs?

  • Ability to ride the wave of change: uncertainty is central to the experience of any early-stage startup. We may build new products or change our focus, etc at any point.

  • Speed: are you ready to run at the speed of a startup? While it’s certainly a marathon and not a sprint, this is not the humdrum routine of a clock-in and clock-out role.

  • Steady: Never having to be “managed” — always communicating proactively and maintaining focus

  • Agility: Being able to change priorities at a moment’s notice

Why all these assignments? We really invest in you when you become part of our team, so we want to make sure that we are a match prior to signing on the dotted line. We also want to avoid upset and confusion on both sides.

What do we mean by a match?

  • Already being familiar with the tools we use. We’re a scrappy startup, so we don’t have time to teach foundational skills. If you’re a quick learner, great! If not, this isn’t the right fit.

  • Adding to our culture. We want cognitive diversity – not a group of people who think exactly alike. It’s as if we’re creating a delicious meal together and we’d love it if you brought a great dish to complement what’s already on the table.

  • Your relationship to our values. Are our values already a part of your life? This is worth exploring both for you and for us.

  • Professionalism:

    • We are genuine with each other and we’re also focused on delivering results.

    • If there’s a conflict, we always address that with each other directly over video, never Slack or email, using the Clean Communication framework.

    • We do what we say we’re going to do – we show up. We call this embracing accountability.

Seeing how you respond to these assignments is a great way for you to get a sense of how we work and what’s important to us and for us to better understand you and how you work.
