Our 130-strong team work out of our London and Lisbon offices and we have just opened a 3rd office for Drover in Bucharest. In this new office, we plan to build out an energetic, proactive team helping our customers make the most of Drover. If the idea of being one of the first Droverians in Bucharest and laying the foundations for what will become a 100-person office sounds exciting to you, keep reading!
As a Customer Service Representative, you will be responsible for making sure our customers have a fantastic experience with Drover. In particular, you will:
Learn the Drover products, messaging and all the necessary tools to become a strong customer relationship specialist
Help our customers whenever they contact us: respond to emails (Zendesk), online chat (Intercom) and phone queries, always striving for an outstanding customer service level. Your enthusiasm and commitment to helping our customers will have them calling you out in Google Reviews and Trustpilot!
Renew subscription contracts and up-sell clients on additional packages
Suggest ideas and improve processes: implement scalable workflows and processes to reduce the number of customer interactions and improve response time, working closely with the product team to eliminate issues causing interactions in the first place
Build multi-functional relationships with other stakeholders, such as Supply, Sales, Booking Operations, Tech, Product and Marketing
Own exciting side projects with the mentorship of your Line Manager
We have two separate Customer Service teams here at Drover, each servicing one of our two types of customers:
Professional Drivers (called PCO internally): we help drivers who make their living via platforms like Uber and Bolt (Taxify) access a vehicle licenced for use as a taxi by the relevant authorities
Consumers (called B2C internally): we also service consumers who simply need a car for personal use
If you are selected for a phone interview, our recruiter will explain both of these roles and help route your application to whichever team is the best fit for your skills, experience and preferences.
We recently asked Droverians what they love most about working here and 60+% of them wrote “the people”! We are proud of the amazing team we have assembled across London, Lisbon, Bucharest and Paris. While each office is unique, we all share a few fundamental commitments:
We’re proactive and take ownership of problems. You will never be micromanaged here. Instead, we give you the space to learn and grow, even if it means making a few mistakes along the way.
We’re a cohesive unit and are here for each other if times get tough... and they sure do sometimes - startups are no walk in the park.
We cherish feedback, whether praise or constructive criticism because it’s the only way to get better at what we do.
We judge ideas on merit rather than who they came from - how much impact have is only up to you.
We all have our own interests, yours doesn’t have to be cars.
A world-class team made up of serial entrepreneurs and alumni from companies like Google, Facebook, Uber, Lyft, WeWork who are eager to meet you!
