02About the Support Team

The Frame.io Support team is based in NYC and extends to Dublin, Florida, and Los Angeles. The team delivers solutions, troubleshoots issues, and provides an over-and-above positive experience for customers in 180+ countries. 

Support Specialists are responsible for working directly with our customers to help them start their first project, answer product questions, track user feedback, report and escalate issues to engineers, and act as the bridge between our customers and our Product, Design, and Engineer teams. As a team who works directly with our community, you’ll be collecting and sharing user suggestions, as well as pain points, directly with the rest of the company. 

 

03About the Role

This is a full-time position working in Los Angeles. This shift will be covering 12pm-9pm PST Sunday-Thursday or Tuesday-Saturday. The first 90 days will be 9am-6pm PST for virtual training and coaching.

On average, you will chat with 30-50 clients per day through Intercom, troubleshooting issues or instructing best practices. While being a proactive support team, we identify what they're trying to do and offer the correct workflow solution and not just answer their immediate question.

Our clients use video editing softwares such as Adobe Premiere, After Effects, Final Cut Pro X and others. Experience using advanced video editing software is preferred for this role.

(iMovie, Windows Movie Maker, and mobile video editing apps are not considered as advanced video editing software)

 

04What does a typical day look like?

You send a “Good morning! 👋” message over Slack to the rest of the team, and catch up on what's been happening during the Dublin and New York workday in our team channel. Intercom is the next app you open, you check your queue and see that 14 customers replied to you overnight with complex details regarding their issues. You love this kind of technical work and look forward to the challenge.

You have such a strong attention to detail, you quickly recognize an AdBlock plugin is in a blurry screenshot that one of the customers sent. That issue is solved; they need to add Frame.io to the Safe list on AdBlock.

Another conversation requires looking into the proxy transcode information. But, you have no clue where to start so you reference the internal documentation for answers. You find the reference, but double check with your Manager if your response would be correct. She says it is, and you decide to create your own reference doc. You love writing up these guidelines so you know how to look up transcode metadata in the future.

The next conversation is specific to the post-production workflow. The customer presents the types of people that need access to Frame.io. They have an Assistant Editor that organizes the projects. They’re not sure what to do about the 3 Editors and 2 DITs that are contractors and never work at the same time. What type of role do they need in Frame.io? They also have a Producer who only needs to approve the finals. Luckily, you’ve worked in this industry and you understand how their production company is set up. It’s easy for you to go above and beyond with your answer, explain why they would work best in those roles and speak from your industry experience.

At the end of your day, you think about the tasks you want to accomplish tomorrow and build out your calendar accordingly. Before you go, you send a message, “I’m taking off, team!” over Slack to let the Dublin team know when the queue was last touched.

Sounds like a fun day, right? If so, let's chat.
