This position is not a good fit for everyone. This section should make you feel excited! If it makes you feel concerned, this is probably not the right position for you.
The job is all remote work, ~10-15 hrs/wk in fall-winter-spring and ~4 hrs/wk in summer. You are expected to maintain an average “first reply time” under 12 hours, and no customer waiting more than 24 hours. You have full flexibility on your scheduling to get this done.
To succeed, you will need to be comfortable checking the customer support queue multiple times per day, 365 days per year.
The person who currently holds the role (who will train you) has maintained an average “first reply time” over the past year of 8 hours, so the job is comfortably doable -- it’s just important that you’ll be happy with this sort of schedule.
Please include in your cover letter why you will be excellent in this position, both in terms of your qualifications and in terms of the fit.
