Your mission:

Your mission is to help customers have an excellent experience using Wise. In Customer Support, we focus the majority of our time providing world-class customer support for our English-speaking customers via phones, chats, and emails. At Wise, our customer support teams understand that making a customer happy and resolving their issue is crucially important to a business' success and you make that your goal for every contact. You’ll support that mission by:

  • Problem solving: Investigating issues with payments, account set-up and login, and providing general support to our customers. 

  • Communicating: We communicate with the majority of our customers via phone, this allows us to resolve their issue in an efficient manner.  We need to communicate not only with our customers, but also with our own internal teams to solve problems by being creative, friendly, and solution oriented.

  • Teaching: We need to educate our customers that may be new to Wise on how to get the most out of our products.

  • Learning: We need to be up to date with our own products to be able to teach our customers about new updates and features.

  • Delivering feedback: Sometimes we get feedback from our customers and it’s our job to pass that feedback along to the proper internal teams. We also receive feedback from our peers and leadership to help us improve our performance and development.

Some of your time is spent on administrative tasks to improve our processes and your development. These include:

  • Participating in team meetings, participating in ongoing training sessions, 1 on 1 meetings with your lead, and assessing quality reviews

  • Reviewing and discussing your performance as it pertains to your metrics. Performance metrics include but are not limited to quality assurance, handling time, phone call pick-up rate, and adherence.

  • Communication: Phone and chats are the primary responsibilities for this role, emails are secondary, so communication skills are key. This includes exceptional verbal & written English skills, active listening, speaking in a friendly and professional tone, and conveying information in an easy to understand manner.

  • Empathy and conflict resolution: It's important to empathise with customer’s situations and remain patient throughout the conversation. Occasionally, you may encounter irate or dissatisfied customers. Strong conflict resolution skills help defuse tension, address concerns, and find mutually beneficial resolutions.
