=== Who We Are ===
We are EVELO (www.evelo.com), a Boston-based electric bicycle company that is focused on developing ways to make cycling more accessible to a wider range of the population by removing barriers that keep people from cycling in the first place (hills, age, fitness levels or even arriving to work sweaty).
We are fanatically focused on delivering a wonderful customer experience to everybody who comes in touch with our company, as we believe that a friendly, personal and emphatic customer service is really what makes the customers happy and companies achieve greatness.
We are growing quickly and so we are looking to fill a new Sales & Customer Service part-time position with a bright, ambitious individual who wants a job with direct impact and responsibility.
=== What’s The Job? ===
It’s simple! Help our prospects, customers and dealers have a fantastic experience before and after they start riding an electric bike by delivering great customer service.
This position includes (but not limited to):
- Handling incoming sales and support inquiries by email, live chat and phone;
- Ensuring that customers are having a fantastic experience from the first contact to sale and beyond;
- Participating in outdoor demo events to educate people about electric bikes;
- Helping to grow our Ambassador and Dealer program to develop a stronger presence around the country.
=== What does a typical day at EVELO look like? ===
It certainly varies, but in a course of a day, you may deal with a:
- Prospect who has a few questions about the bikes before they make the purchase and want to talk to somebody about it. You return their call and address their questions.
- Customer who received a bike but has questions about assembly and wants someone to work them through it. So you help them out and then work with the rest of the team to put together ideas for a new video that can help customers assemble the bikes easier.
- Customer is experiencing an issue with the bike after riding it for 6 months and wants help to troubleshoot and resolve it. You get in touch with them, diagnose the issue and schedule a visit to a nearby bike shop to have the problem resolved under warranty.
- Bike Shop wants to receive more information about becoming a dealer. You give them a call to learn more about their needs, let them know what we can offer and schedule to follow up with them in a week.
- A few potential customers who have reached out to us the past week, but haven’t moved forward. So you give them a call or shoot them an email to find out if there is anything else we can do to make it easier.
This is just a small sample of the issues that come in, but they give you a glimpse of what you’d be dealing with on a day-to-day basis. Furthermore, you’ll also be involved in our outdoor demo events where showcase the bikes, offer test rides and educate the public about it.
=== The Logistics: ===
Location: This job is open both for remote applicants and those who wish to work from our office in Cambridge, MA (in Kendall Sq.).
Hours: This job starts off with 20-25 hours per week. Hours are flexible as long as they fit between 9am – 9pm EST.
