It’s been a hot minute, folks…

…since we’ve done a work-from-home job round-up. We didn’t mean to leave you hanging. We swear we’re still on the lookout for cool work-from-home jobs.

So here’s the latest.

5 Work-From-Home Jobs in Customer Service Open Right Now

This list is full of a variety of positions with a bunch of companies — from startups to corporations, even dating sites.

1. Vroom needs about 150 customer care agents.

I mentioned Vroom in an article about buying used cars. It’s an online platform for car buying. (Yeah, you can do anything online these days.)

But customer care agents don’t need to be car experts.

Vroom simply needs folks — about 150 of you, actually  — who can reassure customers by answering their questions and offering warranty and delivery details. The agent will primarily make outbound calls to interested buyers.

To snag this Vroom job, you should be customer-oriented and be able to navigate websites.

Shifts will be part time — at least 25 hours a week — and range between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m., seven days a week.

Pay starts at $10 an hour. For more details and to apply, visit NexRep.

2. Get the Guy is hiring a rock star detective.

This London-based online dating and relationship advice company helps women “get the guy.”

But it’s not just words on a screen. The site also offers customer service — you know, for the dating disasters.

That’s why it needs a customer service rock star detective who’ll answer emails, issue refunds and pass technical issues along to developers.

The perfect detective will be a problem-solver (duh) and independent. The candidate should have basic technological knowledge and freelance experience.

Get the Guy’s team is totally remote. The position starts part time — 10-20 hours per week — sometime between noon and 9 p.m. (EST), Monday through Friday.

I reached out to the team about pay and will update you when I hear back. In the meantime, here’s the complete job listing.

3. Acuity Scheduling is hiring customer happiness specialists.

We’ve mentioned Acuity before, but this is one of my favorite job listings. Ever.

And the job is open again.

Acuity Scheduling is a 10-year-old online scheduling company based in New York City with a BIG personality.

The job listing is written as a dating ad: “While I don’t usually do this sort of thing, I figured it was time to ‘put myself out there’ and see if, just maybe, the right person might be reading on the other side of the screen.”

The right person will be a human who loves to talk, email and live chat with other humans. Said human will help solve customer problems — even if it’s just a “forgot my password” issue. The human gets bonus points if they can handle some basic coding and create videos.

And Acuity promises to treat its new human with care: Pay ranges from $45,000-$65,000, depending on experience and skills.

The company also says it covers 100% of employees’ medical, dental and vision premiums. Employees should also expect a 401(k) — plus an annual $5,000 credit for continuing education.

Interested in a first date — err, interview? Apply online.

4. HomeAdvisor needs brand ambassadors.

VIPDesk Connect, a hiring company, is looking for brand ambassadors for HomeAdvisor, an online home improvement marketplace that hosts more than 30 million homeowners.

It needs brand ambassadors from Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Texas, Utah and Virginia. (See why it might have these state restrictions here.)

The perfect ambassador will be able to sit for a long time, work on weekends and holidays, pass a criminal and employment security check, have a home office and at least a year of customer service or sales experience. A high school diploma is required, though some college is preferred.

Shifts run Monday to Friday 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. (EST), Monday through Friday, and 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. (EST) on Saturday and Sunday. Or, you can take second shift: 10:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. (EST).

Pay ranges $10 to $12 an hour.

5. InVision needs a customer success manager.

We wrote about InVision way back when. But it’s hiring again.

InVision describes itself as a design collaboration platform — but you don’t need to know code to use it.

It needs someone who can help out with customer support — working with customers to answer any questions. As a customer support agent, you’ll possess excellent written and verbal communication skills.

It’ll help if you have knowledge in design practices and tools (preferred, not required). You also must be located in U.S. eastern or central time zones.

There are great perks, too.

“Each InVision team member is given the freedom and tools to do their best work from wherever they choose,” the listing states.

You’ll also have a flexible vacation policy, unlimited Starbucks cards and unlimited access to books related to your job.

So grab your last paid cup of Starbucks and apply online today.
