Customer Support Representative Intern

A Customer Support Representative Intern isn’t your typical intern experience. At Placester, you will be responsible for making sure our customers love their online presence. This is a big role. You’ll be engaging and onboarding customers on a daily basis; answering their questions and guiding them in how to best use our products in a way that brings them value.

What does that mean? You’ll be helping them create and launch successful real estate websites, listening and responding to customer insight; supporting multiple customers at any given time through your amazing pipeline and time management skills. But let’s be clear about one thing: you’re not just answering emails. We need a dynamic individual who can provide top notch consultative service and support for our customers. Someone who can clearly express what they learn and play a pivotal role in getting that learning into our product.

As an intern you will be working up to 30 hours per week so you can work around your school schedule. This will include multiple evenings and either one full day Saturday or Sunday each week. At first, while you train, being in the office is necessary, however may of these hours can be worked from home once you are all set. This is a paid internship.
