Technical support agent

32-40 hours a week
Wijchen, the Netherlands

Yoast is growing rapidly, and because of that, we’re looking for a technical support agent for our HQ in Wijchen, NL. Is helping people your second nature? If you can express your smile in your written communication then we’re looking for you!

You will be a part of our international, distributed support team. You're experienced in customer support, and love doing it. You're well aware that not everyone is as skilled as you are. Your goal in every conversation is to help our customer reach their goal, even if it requires a bit of research and learning on your side. You’ll be the link between our remote colleagues and our colleagues at HQ. To reduce returning questions you write clear Knowledge Base articles and Help documentation.

You realize that you're the face of Yoast, and know that people love smiling faces. You can express your smile in your written communication, because that's what you'll be doing at Yoast. Forget that charming phone-voice, it's all about writing here!

You've got an eye for detail. Information that's well hidden between sentences doesn't stay hidden for you, and you care about every dot and comma in your replies. You have:

  • You act and think on HBO level.
  • You’re experienced in customer service.
  • Fluent in English (proficiency level 4 / B2, or up).
  • Fluent in another language, preferably Spanish (proficiency level 4 / B2, or up) is a plus.
  • Affinity for the web, like SEO, websites in general, Open Source and WordPress, is a plus.
  • Experience in supporting WordPress users is a plus. Being active on the wordpress.org support forums is a huge advantage when applying.
  • You’re ready to learn!

We’d prefer you speak Dutch and English. We would expect you to work out of our office in Wijchen, NL (near Nijmegen). Submitting a motivation letter is a required part of the procedure.

The application process consists of three parts: an introductory job interview, a practical interview, and a final meeting. These steps might be divided over multiple days. A social media screening might be part of the procedure.

This vacancy will close on May 13th, 2018. The job interviews will be planned for May 16th, 2018. The practical interview will be planned for May 18th and the final meeting will be planned for May 25th, 2018.
