Take Pride in Your Job: Grindr is Hiring Work-From-Home Representatives
The team behind gay dating app Grindr says it’s all about connecting men “to the world that brings them happiness.”
Here’s your chance to help Grindr bring about that connection by snagging this work-from-home job as a customer support agent.
The job is open to applicants around the country, but Eastern daylight time zone is preferred.
Like many part-time remote employees, customer support agents at Grindr work less than 30 hours per week and are not eligible for benefits.
However, “as a Customer Support Agent you will have the opportunity to influence the way Grindr meets the support needs of its users, and positively enhance Grindr's brand in the marketplace through successful customer interactions,” reads the job description.
In practical terms, that means you’ll help Grindr users troubleshoot technical issues and provide instructions to them using written communication.
Grindr is looking for applicants who meet these requirements:
- One or two years of experience in customer support.
- Excellent English communication skills.
- A computer and high-speed internet connection.
- Comfortable using IM, Skype and email as primary methods of communication.
- Familiarity with iOS and Android.
- Prior experience with remote working and Zendesk customer support platform preferred.
I reached out to Grindr reps to ask about the pay range for this position, and I’ll update this article when they get back to me.
If this job sounds like it’s right up your alley, here’s where to apply.
