Customer Support Specialist (Remote)
Respondent is a two-sided marketplace that connects market and user researchers with the highest quality research participants in the world. Our platform gives researchers a single place to quickly find the right participants for their projects, as well as schedule and pay them instantly. It simplifies the work that’s necessary to conducting quality research. Companies like IBM, Airbnb, Uber, Microsoft, Procter & Gamble and many more trust and integrate us into their research processes.
We are a small, quickly growing, fully remote tech startup. Working as a distributed team allows us to hire the best talent regardless of location (right now, everyone works in a continental US Time Zone). All of our employees have areas of expertise as well as a wide breadth of knowledge in their domains. This blog post shares more insight into how we work successfully as a distributed team.
What you’ll do!
- Offer responsive support to researchers’ research participants via Intercom (chat support)
- Address all support inquiries within company identified guidelines for response times
- Be the main point of contact, and increase engagement levels with Respondent’s marketplace of research participants
- Offer proactive support by taking ownership of the researcher and participant Knowledge Base
- Work with team members to enhance and evolve the customer experience
- Identify product feature requests to submit to the product team based on customer feedback
- Support internal team and partners with billing/payment inquiries
Who are you?
- You have a few years of experience in a customer support role at an established customer-centric internet business; this isn’t your first rodeo
- You have experience responding to customer support tickets/chats with a high volume
- You understand the value of KPIs, and are motivated by having your success measured by them
- You work well with deadlines and understand that prompt, thorough, and accurate responses contribute to excellent experience
- You speak and write clearly and prioritize effective communication
- You are always researching better ways of doing things, implementing systems to ensure the outcomes of your tests are measurable, and working hard to improve in a continuous fashion
We are looking for someone who matches our level of joy for the work we do, brings something new to the team, and elevates our game. Our core values are very important to us and we hope they resonate with you, too. You can read more about them here!
Working at Respondent is a unique experience. You will be part of a remote, diversified team around the US and world. We care deeply about creating a cohesive, tight-knit culture that gets results. That’s why we offer our employees the following:
- Work remotely from anywhere in a continental US Time Zone (we are not able to accommodate continuous travel e.g. digital nomadism, remote year, etc.)
- A full office set up, including a MacBook Pro, desk, second screen, ergonomic chair, and wireless mouse & keyboard
- Health insurance for US-based employees covered at 99% for individuals and 50% for dependents (non-US employees receive a healthcare stipend)
- Short Term Disability covered at 100% for all US-based employees
- Dental and Vision insurance offered at group rates to lower the cost for US-based employees
- Four weeks of flexible vacation (need a bit more for religious or country holidays–no problem!)
- Paid holidays
- Stock options
- Company retreats for teammates to get to know one another in-person: our last two were in New Orleans and San Antonio!
Respondent is an equal opportunity employer

Our dynamic team members have incredible perspectives to share, just as we know you do, and we take great pride in being an equal opportunity workplace and encourage candidates from underrepresented backgrounds to apply.
