Our Technical Support Service Philosophy
We choose our customers carefully, take care to understand their needs, and strive to exceed their expectations by delivering solutions that are second to none.
We give customers the benefit of a doubt. The vast majority of our customers are smart people with good intentions.
If we mess up, we win back our customer's trust by promptly and openly admitting our mistakes, fixing the problem, and astonishing them with generosity.
We treat customers as partners: developing strong relationships based on trust and mutual respect, working hard to succeed together, always looking for the win-win.
"Love the Customer" is one of our core values; "Thou shalt not speak ill of the customer" is our commandment.
We don't tolerate abuse from anyone. Not even our customers.
Why Work for Us?
If you are really good at what you do, hundreds of companies are competing with each other to entice you to come work for them. So why would you choose to work for us? What makes us special?Â
Based on our own experience working for other companies, exit interviews, and feedback from teammates (both current and former), here are a few things that we believe make us stand out:
ÂWe spend a great deal of time and effort to make sure that we are a good fit for the people we hire, and vice versa. As a result we like, trust, and respect each other.
The odds are high that you will make a best friend at work.
We're a meritocracy: raises, bonuses, promotions, and specific work assignments depend on the individual contribution and performance.
We detest micromanagement. Your manager's job, is to remove obstacles to help you do yours.
We hate red tape, and believe that it is better to ask for forgiveness, than permission.
We believe that it makes good business sense to give every team member the best tools and trust them to get the job done.
Office politics, gossip, and shoddy work are vices we fight with a vengeance.
"Open, honest & direct" is our guiding principle for communicating with our customers, vendors, and each other: we tell it like it is, openly admit our mistakes, and prefer to under-promise and over-deliver.
Sound like a good fit? We'd love to hear from you!
