The Xero CX Specialists are a collaborative team, known for being empathetic and curious problem solvers, who add value and make a positive impact to our Customers day.
We are looking to fill two roles within Customer Experience.

About the Role
You will take ownership for investigating and responding to the cases that our customers raise with us when they need a bit of help.

As a CX specialist, you'll aim to give each customer prompt, helpful and easy to understand information so they can resolve their issue and get back on track with their accounting. Most of our communications are via email but when the situation calls for a #human voice, you'll jump on a call to answer over the phone. When you aren't working on these cases you use your deep product knowledge to surprise and delight our customers with a call around the different features they are using. You won't have to do all of this alone though!
