Customer Support Specialist
At Teachable we empower creators to transform their knowledge into income. To accomplish this, our products enable individuals and small businesses to create, host and sell online courses and coaching. Teachable Creators have tens of thousands of active creators who’ve reached more than 45 million students around the world, teaching a diverse array of topics, ranging from crafting to card tricks to coding. Fifty million people worldwide consider themselves to be creators. More than two million people earn enough from their passion projects to consider it their full-time income. The rise of the creator economy means more people than ever want to share what they know and monetize it. Teachable is poised to offer best-in-class solutions to this ever-growing market.
In 2020, Teachable was acquired by Hotmart Company, a global leader in the Creator Economy with a shared mission of empowering creators to live out their passions. With offices in eight countries and more than 35 million users worldwide, Hotmart’s partnership ensures our creators—current and future—have access to best-in-class technology tools, so they can scale their online businesses with ease and truly make an impact on their students’ lives.
Teachable is on a mission to enable the transformative power of knowledge in our world. Our online platform enables individuals and small businesses (our “Creators”) to build, host and sell online courses and coaching. We generate revenue in two ways: (1) from monthly or annual subscription fees (SaaS) paid to us by our Creators for access to the platform; and (2) from transaction fees calculated as a percent of the value of courses and services sold by Creators through our platform. We currently support over 40,000 Creators who have collectively sold over $1 billion in courses and coaching on Teachable.
As a Customer Support Specialist, you will delight our Creators by providing solutions to customer issues, and acting as a liaison between internal support teams and customers. You’ll be part of a best-in-class customer support organization that has a unique position in being able to work directly with our Creators and help scaffold their online businesses to new heights.
This is a full-time, non-exempt position and you’ll be assigned a specific shift (8 hours per day / 40 hours per week).
Our customer support team operates seven days a week, 365 days a year, from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. EST.
We’re looking for someone with flexibility to work evenings, weekends, holidays, and occasional overtime as needed.
What You'll Do:

What We're Looking For:
- 2+ years providing high-volume email/live chat support, preferably in SaaS
- Strong computer skills to learn and work within multiple systems (must be able to type at least 40 wpm)
- Effective written and verbal communication skills: you are comfortable translating complex concepts to non-technical audiences
- Emotional intelligence and an empathetic inclination to understand what the customer is saying versus what they mean
- Curiosity for learning - you enjoy taking on new challenges and are able to quickly distill learnings in a fast paced environment to best support our Creators and teams
