The Product Support Specialist will report to the Product Support Manager and will manage the support tickets and escalations in his/her own queue to ensure proper handling and timely updates and resolution of support tickets ultimately leading to the exceptional customer experience and satisfaction which Airbase is known for.
This role will also need to focus on regularly keeping up on changes and improvements in the Airbase product as new features are continuously rolled out. The Product Support Specialist is expected to be a product expert to allow customers to receive quick responses on their how-to questions or confusions. This role is expected to work together with a team of highly efficient and productive Product Support Specialists in issue resolution to ensure the team is providing superior customer experience.
This role is a great fit for you if you have an accounting/audit background but prefer to be in a customer-facing role with an opportunity to help finance and accounting teams to be more productive. We also encourage you to apply and grow in this role if you have experience performing consulting work on ERP implementations and similar roles requiring customer interaction.
What you’ll do:

- Conduct customer meetings as needed to minimize miscommunications and escalations from happening and to further understand business implications for the issue on hand and provide workaround solutions and next steps for the customer during the meeting.
- Manage customer expectations on issues raised.
- Proactively escalate and flag concerns on support tickets to the Product Support Manager appropriately to allow timely action and next steps to be taken before the customer becomes unhappy and initiates the escalation him/herself.
- Perform customer outreach as advised by the Product Support Manager for issues affecting a large number of customers.
- Collaborate with Product, Engineering, Professional Services, and Customer Success teams to ensure quick turnaround and provide quality service to Airbase customers.
- Bachelor’s degree in accounting, business, or related field.

- Excellent problem solving, critical thinking, and analytical skills.
- Quick-learning self-starter who has great attention to detail, able to multitask, and is highly motivated to provide customer satisfaction.
