About the Company
“HeySummit empowers anyone to run amazing virtual summits from anywhere. From selling tickets and organising speakers, to managing talks and outreach, HeySummit is a complete wrap-around system for organisers of online conferences, speaker series, media libraries and summits.
Everyday, people use HeySummit in new ways to spread human knowledge and with a smaller carbon footprint.
Who We Are
We are a small team with backgrounds in building businesses that delight customers. With HeySummit, we’re on a mission to be the best way to spread human knowledge.
HeySummit is a business borne out of need, after Ben wanted to run an online conference and couldn’t find something to do the trick. He didn’t have a solution, so decided to build one. After a successful summit and listening to the 50th person begging to know what platform he’d used, the decision to open HeySummit to the world was made.
More than just a summit platform, we strive to make an impact with everything we do.
Where We’re Going
We see HeySummit growing into a highly impactful company, building a beautiful product that empowers users all over the world.
The future, we believe, is distributed, and we’re building a connected team that can work from anywhere. We welcome applications from all over the world.
Following in the footsteps of pioneers like Buffer and Doist, we’re deliberate about the culture we develop. This means fostering a working community of independent thinkers, supporting one another to work our best, and encouraging personal and professional growth.”

HeySummit is hiring a Customer Happiness Champion to help assist, educate, and delight HeySummit customers and users.
Despite launching just months ago, HeySummit has already experienced a sudden and significant burst of users which has been great for building their community. While this growth has been positive, one of their biggest goals is to provide excellent support to their customers, and HeySummit is looking for your help to make that happen.
HeySummit need the right people onboard to help not only maintain their high level of customer service now, but be part of scaling their customer happiness offering well into the future. They understand the value in excellent customer support, and are excited to work with a professional who knows customer happiness and has the energy, ability and pride of product to help them design even better customer experiences.

As a Customer Happiness Champion, you’ll get to know how the customers use the product, and where UX improvements can be made. You are the closest member of the team to the customer, and your opinions carry meaningful weight in the team’s decisions about the direction of the product.
Your main tasks will be attending to the support and customer happiness experience through:

HeySummit believe communication is vital for exceptional work. They have daily video standups, open calls, and 121s where you meet and build relationships with every member of the team. They have two all-company off-sites per year. These activities help them to build a strong and supportive workplace culture.
HeySummit believe exceptional work is about adopting a mindset of continuous learning and being comfortable with failure, openness and vulnerability. They practice radical candour, provide a supportive environment and encourage everyone to challenge assumptions. They have a no-blame culture where everyone’s ideas have value.

● You pride yourself on excellent communication and tone
● You show empathy in your writing and treat everyone with respect
● You can write clear and concise help documentation
