Let’s start with the 3 main aspects of the role – does this sound like you?
Within this role, you will get to utilize your technical know-how, grow and develop your team as a people leader, and improve our SaaS product towards future scalability.
1️⃣ Team leadership for the Customer Support team
In the role, you would primarily be a team manager with responsibility for a team of 7 Support Engineers. Your role is to guide your team to success, and help them in their tasks and troubleshooting, when needed.
Customer satisfaction and support are something we’re deeply passionate about at Refined. We develop site building tools to customize familiar applications (Jira and Confluence) into branded intranets, knowledge bases, documentation sites and support desks with no code needed. While our tools are easy to use, we want our customers to feel that whatever challenges, questions or bugs they might have are resolved quickly. We want our customers to feel heard, be met with empathy and leave happy.
The support team strives for quality over quantity – there’s no specific number of tickets to resolve per employee, but a SLA to meet. The tickets vary in complexity – It’s an interesting mix of technical support with a touch of customer success. Developing and finding great KPI’s for your team around how to measure success in a meaningful way is also something you could leave your handprint on as a team manager.

2️⃣ Acting as a customer advocate within Refined
Our philosophy is that our customers make our product. The second aspect of your role is to act as an advocate for our customers. Getting valuable information from the support tickets and delivering it to the product teams developing our products further.
This means that you will be a key person in tackling the silos and being a bridge between the customer support team and the product teams. While 80 % of your job is within the support team, you will also collaborate closely with Product Managers, Product marketing and growth teams to share your valuable customer insights. You’ll be an integral part of teamwork, the goal of which is to develop our product and further grow our business.
3️⃣ Ensuring that our support function is running smoothly and it can scale
Our team is getting ready to continue our growth journey. You would make sure that the support function can scale under your management. Scaling means more customers, and for the support function, it means more versatile support tickets. In the future, we will have a lot of different kinds of customers with different backgrounds and needs. This leads to many different types of interaction and communication styles.
From your perspective, this means also making sure that your team has the necessary skills to help our versatile customers globally. For example this would mean building a learning & development strategy for your team to update their skills.
