Head of Customer Support
A Head of Customer Support to Lead Our Agents
TLDR: We’re seeking a Head of Customer Support for a sleep-focused e-commerce company (full-time, fully remote, Europe/Asia timezone)
We are looking for a Head of Customer Support to lead our agents in service of primarily American customers. You will be setting the standard for excellent customer service, leading our current CS team (who are in the Philippines), hiring new agents, and managing their performance across helpdesk, email, social media, SMS, live chat, and Amazon. You will also be driving forward CS innovations, implementing new tools, and improving overall CS efficiency. Finally, you serve as the bridge into the hearts and minds of our customers for the rest of the company.
This role is fully remote and requires you to work in Europe or Asia time zones.
NOBODY LIKES JOB HUNTING, BUT THERE’S A REASON WHY YOU’RE HERE...
Maybe you’re sick of office politics and layers of bureaucracy and crave the support of a team who’s got your back - without hidden agendas.
Maybe you’re overworked and underappreciated and want to be somewhere that prioritizes both your rest & output, and rewards you based on results rather than hours.
Or, maybe you’re just feeling stuck with your career and are looking for the right environment to excel and get to the next level.
Whatever your reasons, it’s exhausting and demoralizing to push back against a culture that doesn’t fit you.
We get it. We know how you feel.
That’s why we do things differently.
HOW ARE WE DIFFERENT?

And these are our 7 core values.
If you can relate to what we’re about, this could be an amazing opportunity for you.
IS THIS YOU?
We’re looking for a Head of Customer Support who is detail-oriented, dependable, and empathetic – someone who genuinely cares about the well-being of our customers and agents.
We need someone who:
Has native-level spoken and written English, since our customers are predominantly in the USA.
Has extensive experience with customer support for online businesses (preferably e-commerce), as you will set the standard for excellence.
Has extensive leadership experience leading, managing, mentoring, hiring, training, and evaluating customer support agents.
Has extensive experience bridging between the hearts and minds of our customers and the rest of the company – through effective reports and timely communication.
Is comfortable with e-commerce tools such as Helpscout, Shopify, Amazon FBA, and Social Platforms (Facebook, Instagram, Reddit).
Is comfortable with data analysis to create reports and actionable insights for the rest of the company.
Is comfortable with driving forward innovation, such as improving processes, increasing efficiency, and implementing new tools and technology.
You should also have these attributes:
You have superb attention to detail
You are someone who pays attention to every little detail – not only in your work but in everything you do. This is a must-have for this position and a fundamental core value at Vansburg.
You are empathetic and genuinely care about people
You are the kind of person who genuinely cares about others (our customers and CS team), and you generously give your time and energy to helping others. You have a great capacity for empathy and compassion. This is another must-have for this role.
You are reliable and dependable
You have a deep sense of responsibility to your team and can be counted on to take care of not just regular operations, but also difficult challenges that inevitably arise.
You are resourceful and can get things done
Training and resources will be provided in your journey, but ultimately, you can take on a project and get things DONE. You are resourceful and can accomplish objectives without much hand-holding.
You can handle pressure in a fast-paced environment
This position can be demanding, especially during periods of the year when customer support tickets drastically increase. You can manage the pressure and rally the team to provide excellent service.
You are proactive and eager to take on responsibility
In a small business environment, things come up, and problems need to be solved. If you are the kind of person who sits back and thinks, “That’s not my responsibility,” then please don’t apply.
