Over 10,000 businesses in 140 countries use Help Scout to serve their customers in a human, helpful way. Help Scout’s Product Support Analyst team is at the heart of what drives us — our customers.
With their deep understanding of the product and our customers, Product Support Analysts maintain a valuable partnership between our support and product teams. They represent the voice of the customer by providing our product team with actionable, data-driven insights used to make customer-centric prioritization decisions. They also work in our support queue where they triage tough issues, gain insight on product trends from customers, and ensure their teammates have the resources and expertise needed to provide best-in-class support as the product changes.
Our ideal hire is motivated by what we’re doing as a company, believes in the value of quality technical support as a career, and is eager to collaborate with product and champion our customers as we decide which problems to solve. It’s an opportunity to be a member of our Customer Support team, while partnering with our product team to have a tangible impact on how the product evolves.
