Help Gamers Keep Gaming as a Remote Customer Support Rep (Part-Time)

If you alt-tab out of Overwatch to read The Penny Hoarder, then this might be your dream gig.

Sutherland is hiring part-time, work-from-home gamers to join its customer support team. The gaming support/customer service representative will help gamers troubleshoot issues to get them back in the action — from router problems to console issues. You’ll field calls for payment hiccups as well.

Hours are flexible, around 20 to 29 a week, with opportunities during peak traffic for additional hours (usually during holiday season). Candidates should have a year or more of customer service experience.

The position is 100% remote and limited to residents of the contiguous United States. (Sorry Alaska and Hawaii).

While the salary information isn’t listed on the job post, Glassdoor clocks the pay between $8 and $9 an hour.

Mandatory training will take place from July 18 to August 26. It will be on Tuesdays through Saturdays, from 3 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. EST. Sutherland offers bonuses for perfect attendance in training and the first 30 days of work.
