Scroll to content

At Happy Socks we have made it our mission to spread happiness everywhere, and you only have to spend a few minutes with us to realize how seriously we take it! In fact, our fun, positive approach is probably the reason we’ve seen such amazing growth over the past couple of years.

We are now looking for not one, but two Customer Experience Representative to take care of our German and English speaking online customers. One permanent position and one temp role for one year, covering a maternity leave -  but still with great chances of staying in the company since we are growing rapidly!

Part of the CX team, today consisting of 10 people, you'll work with 120 colorful characters (and co-workers), from over 25 different countries at our quirky HQ in Stockholm, Sweden. As a CX Representative you will deliver best-in-class customer service and solve problems via email and chat. You will be in contact with our customers, as well as having daily contact with third-party partners such as warehouses and distributors. You will also collaborate with other departments within Happy Socks and our external CX team.

Main tasks:

  • Provide customer service via email, and sometimes chat, using a customer support tool (in the Permanent position you will also provide service via our social media channels such as Facebook and Twitter)
  • Act as Second Line support by handling escalations, including complaints, from our external team
  • Apply standard procedures and best practices to satisfy customer needs (returns, refunds, exchanges etc.)
  • Pro-actively inform customers about services available and assess customer needs
  • Outline areas where customer experience can be improved (based on customer feedback, own observations or competitor analysis)
  • Assist in conducting tests aimed at improving customer experience, e.g. delivery tests
  • Translations and proofreading for various communication material

Working hours are primarily weekdays 09.00-18.00 (during the first weeks of onboarding these might be different.) The schedule is subject to change during intense shopping periods, such as sale and holiday seasons. 

Requirements and skills:

  • Fluency in English and German, both written and spoken 
  • At least six months experience from customer service via email and/or chat (within e-Commerce is a big plus!)
  • Excellent communication skills - written, verbal and listening

To rock this role you need to have excellent communication skills and work well under pressure, for example under peak periods with skyrocketing customer queries. You have a “customer-first” and supportive attitude with a natural understanding of how to exceed customer expectations. You are not afraid to try new things in order to put insights to good use. Lastly, it's important for us that you share our passion for the products and the cultural philosophy of Happy Socks!

Please let us know if you’re more interested in the temp position or the permanent position! We look forward to receiving your application!
