Help Wanted

Help WantedYes, we are growing again!

The ideal candidate is a timer who wants to come in from the cold to help customers use our The Race Director, RaceJoy and RunSignUp offerings – working on weekends and have a couple of days off during the week.

We are looking for another person on our team who is a fast-learning and self-motivated employee with experience in the race timing/registration industry to join RunSignUp’s customer support team. As this is a position that is in direct contact with the users of our online tools (race directors & timers) and the end users (participants) this role requires professionalism and patience. This is a split role in which you will work with other team members. This is a service-oriented role that requires working over weekends, with two days off during the week. Experience with The Race Director, RunScore, or other scoring platforms while not required would be preferred. You will also provide valuable guidance to our future product directions.

  • Document common user problems and formalize solutions to bring up to our development team.
  • Prioritize and develop topical user guides to aid in customer support.

  • Strong communications skills, both written and verbal
  • Ability to listen to what customers need and provide solutions based on their needs
  • Ideally based in Philadelphia, Richmond, Grand Rapids, San Diego or Orlando areas, but we have lots of remote people, so not a requirement

  • Experience with endurance events
  • High energy, hands-on
  • Gets stuff done rather than just talk about stuff
  • Attention to detail and ability to complete tasks in a high volume environment
