About the Community Support Team

The Community Support Team provides technical support and training to our community of 120,000+ organizations.

Additionally, they advocate for new features and report issues based on user feedback, and strive to ensure that our community is happy with their experience by offering best-in-class, continuously improving support.

Community Support Associate

We're hiring a Community Support Associate who will support the organizations and individuals that use Idealist.org [2] by providing customer and technical support while managing online content posted by our site’s users.

This position calls for empathy, an understanding of how people use (and how they have trouble using) websites, and a commitment to providing a great experience to users whenever they are in contact with us.

As a Community Support Associate, you'll be responsible for:

  • Responding compassionately and effectively to a high daily volume of phone and email inquiries from organizations and individuals who need help using our site
  • Reviewing and approving new organizations, including nonprofits, government agencies, and social enterprises
  • Ensuring that Idealist is a safe and productive place for users by reviewing posted content to make sure it adheres to our policies
  • Maintaining user-facing and internal help pages
  • Keeping an eye out for potential bugs, site issues, and user experience improvements
  • Providing support for other programs and projects as needed

Our ideal candidate will have the following qualifications:

  • 1-3 years experience supporting clients or customers in a patient, friendly, and effective manner
  • Great written and oral communication skills, with an ability to provide clear and confident instructions about complex processes and systems
  • Ability to stay focused and detail-oriented while doing routine tasks
  • Comfortable working independently and in a team

Your application will be even stronger if you:

  • Have experience in, and an understanding of, the nonprofit sector
  • Have experience with Salesforce, Desk, Zendesk, or other helpdesk software

Note: While strong technical expertise is a plus, this is not an IT, hardware support, or engineering position.

This is a full-time (40 hrs/week) position (Monday through Friday) with standard business hours. Though remote work is possible, travel to our NYC offices a few times a year may be required.
