Your main responsibility will be to reply to customers asking for help with WP All Export and WP All Import. You need to love to help others and be able to eeep it friendly even when dealing with difficult customers. You need to enjoy the whole process of turning anxious, confused, or angry customers into happy ones. You must be an excellent writer. We want our support replies to be friendly, easy to understand, and concise.

Flexibility:

We are a small team, but we try to give everyone as much flexibility as possible. Flexibility means that you can work in the mornings, or the evenings, or both, or in the middle of the night, or whatever. It means you can take two weeks off to go on a trip. It means you can wake up and decide you don’t feel like working and take the day off without telling anyone.
It doesn’t mean you can work 50hrs one week and then 5hrs the next. It doesn’t mean that you can work two 15 hour days and then take the rest of the week off.

Responsibilities:

  • Responding to customer support inquiries
  • Adding to and improving our documentation
  • Creating video tutorials/screencasts using Camtasia
  • Aggregating customer feedback and assisting us with development/product roadmap decisions

Send an email to inbox@soflyy.com. Use ‘Hiring – Customer Support’ as the subject of your email. Your email should contain the following information, divided into sections:

Write a paragraph or two introducing yourself and describing your experience with WordPress. Please describe and include links to your work that you are most proud of, along with a few links to code you have written (on your GitHub account, in a Gist, a plugin, etc). Most people don’t have any code samples or plugins on WordPress.org, so if you do that’s an easy way to stand out.

2. Writing Samples

Please send writing samples in the body of your email – no attachments. The easiest way to stand out is to have succinct yet warm replies, and links to documentation or a screenshot where helpful. The primary reason we pass on candidates is that their replies are too long, even if they are factually correct.

A customer wants to use WP All Export to create an XML feed from their WooCommerce products. Write back and explain to them how they can create an XML feed that looks like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

 </product>
 <product>

  </images>
 </product>
</products>
  • A customer has e-mailed the support desk stating they have a CSV file of products, including two columns – sale_price and regular_price. The customer wants to only import products where the sale price is discounted more than 30% from the regular price. Write back explaining how to do this.

  • A customer an Excel file and wants to know if WP All Import can import the data. You’ve looked at their spreadsheet and determined that WP All Import will be able to import the data.
  • A customer wants a refund but is outside of our 30 day money back guarantee.

3. Use WP All Import

Use WP All Import by creating a debug installation of WP All Import at http://www.wpallimport.com/debug and then import the following file as WooCommerce variable products. Include the login details for the /debug site in your e-mail. Import this file: http://www.wpallimport.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/BurtonSacks.csv

Hint: http://www.wpallimport.com/documentation/woocommerce/variable-products/
Write a PHP function and add it to the Function Editor. Pass the product color through your function – it should change:

‘Fish Blanket’ to ‘Shrimp Blanket’
‘Digi Plaid’ to ‘Sgt Bilko Brown’
‘Rasta’ to ‘Pasta’

Hint: http://www.wpallimport.com/documentation/developers/execute-php/

  • Help develop new email marketing funnels as well as improve our existing ones
  • Find the right words to educate, inspire, and motivate users to take action
  • Create clear and engaging copy that’s honest and helpful (and not hype)
  • Focus on results — you’re not satisfied merely creating new copy and calling it a day. Rather, you’re focused on making sure what you produce gets the desired results.

The ideal candidate for this position should have an entrepreneurial mind-set and be ready to take on and initiate new projects as he or she sees the need arise.

What’s it like to work on the Student Loan Hero team?:

Each team member uses highly specialized skills while working on a variety of projects. We enjoy giving our team members autonomy to do the work that interests them. We’re focused on the output of each team member, not putting in long hours.

We’re always open to new ways to create better content and make Student Loan Hero better for student loan borrowers, and we want to hear new ideas from you. A large part of our culture and values is transparency. We believe that team members should collaborate and communicate, not compete or engage in office politics.

At the same time, we like to make work as much fun as possible. We want everyone on our team to grow both personally and professionally, which is why we offer pretty damn awesome benefits and perks like unlimited vacation time and student loan repayment assistance.

Above all, we’re each proud to work on solving meaningful problems and to impact lives every day. Whether it’s authoring a blog post read by thousands of borrowers or answering a one-on-one customer support question, we value that working for Student Loan Hero makes a positive impact.
