Customer Support at Tessian
 
Our incredible product-market fit and customer growth has led to an exponential rise in users who are being protected by Tessian across the world.  With our customers increasing in size, sophistication and organisational complexity we’re now looking for an inspirational leader who thrives under pressure to drive our customer support strategy going forward. 
 
We’ve seen over the last few years how powerful great customer support can be to your reputation amongst customers and their peers (we have a CSAT score of over 99% and have never had a customer leave us). We’re now looking for an experienced leader to help scale both our technical and non-technical support to the next level, whilst retaining a relentless focus on ensuring we’re providing a service that is above and beyond what is expected in B2B software.  
 
Customer support at Tessian is different. The issues we face are not high-volume “how-to” questions, but specific environmental nuanced issues which require a deep technical understanding, out-the-box thinking and a creative mindset to resolve. We’re looking for an experienced leader who has a proven track-record of providing exceptional customer experiences, thrives when solving complex issues and can get the best out of both technical and non-technical teams.
