Hi, thanks for reading about our Customer Onboarding Representative opportunity! We’re glad you’re here.
We’re Knack, a code-free platform used by thousands of customers — from non-profits to the world’s biggest companies — to easily build custom apps, workflows, and databases.
The Customer Onboarding Rep will be a new part of our Sales team, where you will work with new users to understand their business needs, help them validate whether Knack is right for them, and set them up for future success. This role will help onboard new customers to our product, understand how to translate its features in a Knack app, and support general inbound inquiries, as well as engage in outbound sales efforts to identify and connect with potential new customers. The ideal candidate should be experienced with working in Hubspot, Intercom, and other related tools.
This role requires someone who excels at both building relationships and finding solutions. The ideal candidate will enjoy working closely with customers to understand their business challenges and educating them on how to translate their needs into a Knack app.
**This role is only open to those eligible to work in the US**
- Help potential customers validate that Knack will be an excellent fit for their use case, and be honest when it’s not.
- Work with customers to understand their business requirements and translate them into application recommendations.
- Help prioritize inbound leads based on fit and potential.
- Respond to customer inquiries around product functionality and aid in troubleshooting.
- Work with senior sales staff to help sales leads reach success milestones through proofs-of-concept, training, questionnaires, presentations, and more.
- Handle and respond to on-line Chat calls (manned during business hours). Answer customers on-line questions and guide them through a successful trial experience.
- Help lead customer candidates to that “A-ha” moment with calls, videos, proofs-of-concept, and webinars.
- Aid in managing customer queue and triage responses based on priority, complexity, and expertise.
- Assist with the development of support materials like tutorials, FAQs, summaries, videos, and more to better assist the sales process.
- Properly document customer goals and capabilities for long term success at Knack.
- Reach out to potential new customers and build connections through outbound sales activities.
- A natural communicator. You balance professionalism with personality to connect with customers on a personal level.
- An excellent writer. You can distill complex instructions into clear, simple directions.
- A problem solver. You’ve seen enough business challenges to recognize common struggles and how to best translate those into effective online workflows.
- Experienced in supporting DIY and/or no-code to low-code web platforms such as website builders, project management tools, or platforms based heavily on databases.
- Previous customer service experience is a plus as is experience with tools like HubSpot and Intercom.
- Comfortable with complexity. Knack is a big product that can deliver real value in multiple ways, sometimes with creative approaches. You aren’t afraid to dig deep into a big technical product.
- Technically adept. You don’t need to know code and won’t be programming, but you need enough foundational knowledge to speak confidently about technical subjects like APIs, security, integrations, and the cloud.
- Hungry for meaningful work, and space to do it. Knack is a complex product in a complex space and the work is extremely challenging – but also deeply rewarding. Knack makes a major impact in the work of thousands of companies and organizations.
