Harvest Expert

  • Contract: Full-time

Job Description

As an Expert, you’ll spend your days helping our customers make the most of their time by getting the most out of our products. We’re the heroes on the frontline and have a deep understanding of our products and our customers.You’ll also be a critical partner to our developers to help them understand where customers are having issues. To deliver the fast, comprehensive, and personal support our customers expect (and deserve), you’ll need to be thoughtful, curious, and a real stickler for details.

There’s more below on the nitty-gritty of the role, but here’s the short version:

  • You’ll love this job if you are energetically curious and delighted to help others.
  • We’ll love you if your a quick learner who’s also enthusiastic, kind, and so reliable that we can set our watches by how regularly you kick ass.
  • Not to brag, ahem, but this is a really awesome, full-time job. The benefits are great, the working arrangements are flexible, and your coworkers are all crazy-smart and kind.

Who should apply?

You, probably.

You don’t need a background in tech. You just need to be kind, curious, and a crazy-good writer. What makes our team great are the unique experiences and perspectives each of us brings to the table. Our customers aren’t all the same, so why should we be? If your empathy muscles are strong and your comma splice game is locked down, you belong here.

Don’t believe me? Here’s proof that you don’t need to know the difference between JavaScript and Python (but think they might be related to coffee beans and giant snakes that eat people). Our previous hires for the role include a dog walker, a German translator, an art curator, and a Tiffany. Tiffany defies description.

One more thing, and this is a big deal: if you are a member of a group that is historically underrepresented and disadvantaged in tech (and society generally, tbh), please know that we welcome your application with open and enthusiastically-waving arms. We want to meet you!

And while we’re on the topic, if you don’t celebrate people’s differences and don’t value the contributions of those who don’t look, sound, or act like you, Harvest isn’t going to be a good fit. When we come to work, we bring our full selves because that contributes to both the vibrancy and richness of our team. So if you want to work here, you should be actively excited about working with a group of people who strive to be inclusive.

What will your life be like? (SPOILERS: pretty great, but not always a piece of cake)

  • You’ll learn the ins and outs of Harvest, Harvest Forecast, and are associated apps and integrations through our intensive training program. You’ll become a true Harvest expert (see what we did there?).
  • You’ll answer email questions and phone calls for the vast majority of your day. That’s the job, mostly. We maintain an industry-leading average response time, with an emphasis on quality rather than quantity of tickets resolved. It’s troubleshooting, bug investigation, teaching, and occasional therapy (“I believe in you!”).
  • You’ll work alongside our developers to figure out thorny problems, and you’ll help our customers through those tricky periods when things don’t work quite right.
  • You’ll build our customer base by using your presentation skills to host webinars for and answer questions from prospective Harvest customers.

Skill Requirements

  • You’re an exceptional communicator and you treat people kindly. You can gracefully break down, solve, and explain, even the most complex problems. Listening, talking, and working with people makes you happy.
  • Your writing skills are flawless. We mean it. You must have a savvy style and a firm grip on grammar.
  • You’re a hard worker with a history of getting things done carefully and efficiently. You’re thorough—no detail go unnoticed.
  • You’re self-motivated, but also enjoy contributing to a team.
  • You can de-escalate a tense situation with ease and grace—working through a tough issue or bug with an upset customer not only doesn’t scare you, it’s a challenge you’re eager to take on.
  • You don’t mind doing the same thing most days. You’re also comfortable jumping onto a side project when the occasion arises and aren’t scared to tackle the new and unknown.
  • You’re patient and enjoy solving tough problems, and you find helping people fix those problems rewarding.
