Job Description

Communication has changed for people. It’s changed for businesses, too.

Intercom is the only suite of customer messaging products that drives growth at every stage of the customer lifecycle—across acquisition, engagement, and support. Today more than 30,000 businesses use Intercom to connect with a billion people worldwide.


Join the company helping businesses grow revenue through live chat, and so much more.


What's the opportunity? πŸ€”

You’ll have an exciting opportunity to influence the trajectory of Intercom's overall business, partner with our senior support and product leaders, and take on an operating role with a fast growing company that aims to fundamentally change the way companies interact with their customers. 


As a (Senior) Customer Support Operations Analyst, you will be responsible for facilitating the Global Customer Support team’s use of Intercom. You will own the development and maintenance of various different automation technologies - everything from the Bots that our customers first see when they contact us to the Rules that route and assign out conversations to support team agents. On top of that, you’ll design and build the metrics to report and analyze our success, working closely with the Support and R&D leadership teams to drive initiatives that improve the efficiency and workload for our internal teams as well as overall customer experience. 


We’re looking for a proactive, independent thinker with deep analytical skills, coupled with the ability to work autonomously in ambiguity. You are not afraid to roll up your sleeves, dig into massive sets of information, and create solutions to problems that have never been tackled before. In addition, you also have the grace to know how to talk to customers, what a great automated experience looks like, and how to identify bad customer experiences and turn them around. You’re both a generalist, able to do a variety of projects with sufficient time and guidance, as well as a specialist, taking pride in independently owning your particular piece of the operation.


This is a new position and you will be responsible for developing and implementing best practices across the organization.


What will I be doing? πŸš€

  • Become an expert on all things Intercom when it comes to our support offering and the tools to help scale our global support org

  • Build and execute programs to better our use of Intercom across all things support and support automation

  • Partner cross functionally with Customer Support leadership, Support Operations, Product Education, R&D and others to build a long lasting, scalable solution for us and our customers

  • Improve old and establish new metrics to evaluate the efficacy of our use of Intercom, particularly when it comes to our Automation and Self-Serve strategies 


What your first 6 months will look like: 

30 days - Onboarding to Intercom and Customer Support Ops: You’ll learn what it means to be an Intercomrade, the ins and outs of our support operation, and how we leverage Intercom to support our customers.


90 days - Using Intercom and going under the hood: At this point you’ll be using Intercom daily to improve how we deliver support to our customers. On top of that, you’ll use your knowledge of the product to start learning our data schemas and setup, leveraging SQL to better understand our own usage of Intercom!  


6 months - Full ownership, scaling your impact, and personal development: You will be connecting all the dots - taking SQL you wrote to analyze the impact the changes you made in Intercom had on our CX and agent efficiency. On top of that, you’ll be dipping your toes in other parts of the operation such as capacity and project management, all while building solid relationships with folks across the company, particularly within our R&D team.
