Customer Support Advocate - Part Time day shift (office based) 

Go the extra mile to help out our customers

GoCardless is growing fast! We’ve built a world-class product that opens up Direct Debit to small and medium-sized businesses across the UK, Europe, Australia and North America! We have recently extended our offering to multinational companies like the Guardian, TripAdvisor and Box. Thousands of businesses already rely on us to handle their payments, and hundreds more join us every week.

We're looking for bright, empathic people to join us in our London office and provide first-rate support and guidance to our UK, European, North American and Australian users.

The role

We pride ourselves on listening to our users and doing everything we can to solve their problems. As a member of our Support team, you'll represent the customer's voice across the company. As your knowledge and experience grows, you’ll have opportunities to help inform our product roadmap to ensure we are always building something people want.

We've built a friendly, collaborative culture, where we hire and develop driven people that share our desire to do the work we can be proud of. We value learning and feedback, and are devoted to encouraging and supporting each other's continual professional growth.

You'll work as part of a wider team of around 20 passionate individuals who work with our UK, European, Australian and North American merchants to solve tough problems and provide world class service.

This role would suit someone who is passionate about operating within a fast-paced tech company, and has the drive to go above and beyond to ensure the service we provide is always second to none.
