Email Support Specialist (SaaS)
Hi, I’m Kieran, CEO at FlatPlan. We work with media companies to deliver breaking news articles to millions of people on Apple devices. We’re a small, passionate team that works closely with some incredible companies including Formula One, Premier League, and Apple. We have big plans – to transform how news media reaches readers – and central to those plans is an exceptional support specialist.
We work with a small, prestigious group of media companies, helping them reach a wide audience of readers. What we do is tricky from a technical perspective, and makes a huge impact on our customers, so when issues arise we tackle them quickly, with well-written emails sent to contacts we’ve built strong relationships with over the years.
On any given day you could be helping to troubleshoot an issue with a breaking news story on US politics, an announcement from Formula One, or a long-read article on climate change. You’ll need to prioritise enquiries, offer proactive help to journalists, and build out an easy-to-follow knowledge base that will be useful to you, and to our support team as we grow.
You’ll be an integral part of our team, becoming a vital connection between customers, our engineers, and senior management – you’ll become our go-to person who can quickly answer or delegate questions about all aspects of our software.
Why you should apply
We’re a small team of people based mainly in the UK and around Europe, working fully remotely. We’re all working together to build an incredible company that makes a genuine impact on media companies, and we’re having fun doing it.
We’re a supportive team that genuinely cares about each other, sharing team achievements and working closely together to solve problems. You’ll get to know many of our customers well, speaking with editors and journalists at world-renowned media companies. We’re growing fast, too, so you’ll learn a lot about a company of this kind and you’ll get plenty of opportunities for personal and professional growth. There are no layers of bureaucracy or work politics – you’ll be speaking directly with everyone from leadership teams to engineers, and we’re a lovely bunch if we say so ourselves!
