Hi, we’re Akkroo: a vibrant, dynamic and innovative tech scale-up based in Brixton.

We’re on a mission to modernise the way businesses think about exhibiting at events and their approach to lead capture, where archaic, manual and broken methods are still the norm.

We’re at the forefront of a new, emerging software category, Event Lead Capture, starting a movement to ensure businesses all over the world are meaningfully connecting their events, sales and marketing to ensure maximum ROI.

We’re now 5 years into our journey, an have recently secured a major round of funding and are growing globally. When better to get involved with a company?

 

About the role

This is a full time position, based at our head office in London.

Our ideal team mate will be familiar with working with customers in adopting and troubleshooting B2B software, have an empathetic attitude to customer success and is someone who believes in our vision for better events.

You’ll be part of our larger, UK-based Customer Experience & Support team, who supports customers globally through delivering a world-class customer service, crafting documentation, troubleshooting bugs, customer training, and go above and beyond to ensure that all customers have a great experience.

What you can expect to fill your days with:

  • Regularly interact with other departments including Product, Marketing and Customer Success.
  • Update the pipeline of user suggestions and feedback to improve Akkroo.
  • Own projects related to improving our support, processes, and self-service.

Who we are looking for

You’re self-sufficient and love the challenge of solving problems and learning new things, but also thrive in an environment where you can do great work independently.

You’re patient and good humored. You’re an excellent listener and educator, and you’re always in search of new opportunities to contribute.

You’re passionate about support. You’re able to empathize with customers in a genuine way that lets them know you care about their issues.

You’re an excellent communicator, fluent in written English with a style focused on building human relationships with customers. You’re just as comfortable on the phone as you are in an email or Live Chat.

You’re curious and have a natural ability to “zoom out” of a problem, in order to ask the right questions. An empathetic problem solver who goes out of their way to help people succeed.

You’re proactive when it comes to challenges. When you don’t know something, you embrace the chance to grow and get better.

  • At least 2 years B2B support experience, ideally with SaaSsoftware

We’re looking to pay a starting salary of £26,000 – £29,000 for this role. We are committed to ratcheting salaries as we grow, so you’ll be rewarded for being an amazing employee and contributing to our growth!

A lot of places boast a great culture, but what’s going on here is really second to none (check out our instagram for a sneak peak). You would join a vibrant, supporting and friendly team, who are laser focused on seeing results and making a real impact. We have a set of core values which define us and shape our tribe, if they resonate with you then we could be onto something.
