What you will do
As Customer Support Representative, you are the very first point of contact for sellers and buyers, bringing a voice to Catawiki for our users! It’s your job to answer their questions and solve their problems in a correct and timely manner, via phone or email. You are a person who is able to communicate in a clear, customer oriented manner. Making sure our customers are satisfied is your number one goal. When it comes to disputes between buyers and sellers, you are able to mediate and take control of the situation, finding a solution that is agreeable for both parties. Being in close communication with our users, you are always on the lookout for ways to improve our service and financial processes. Lastly, your skill with language enables you to help your colleagues communicate with buyers and sellers in languages they do not speak.
