Job requirements

Let us introduce ourselves first

Hi! We are FunXtion, a digital fitness experience company. We provide gyms with the tools to stay relevant in this fast-paced, ever-changing digital landscape. We do this by offering them energizing content and better delivery systems (e.g. apps, portals) so their members can train with them anytime, anywhere. We help some of the largest and best-known companies in the world (such as Fitness First, Goodlife and Anytime Fitness).

As a self-managing professional at FunXtion, we believe that you can make good and innovative work when you have the freedom to do it your way. This means we are looking for people who are not only passionate about their profession but who can work well autonomously and as part of a pretty cool team. Are you one of those people? Great! Because we are now looking for a Customer Support.

When someone asks what you do for work, you say:

“I work for one of the coolest companies in the Netherlands, called FunXtion. I play an important role in making sure our clients are always happy and satisfied with our products and services. I answer their questions and troubleshoot any issues along the way.”

But what you really do:
You are the first line of contact for our clients. If there are any bugs, issues, or other user-related questions, you-re the go-to friendly face our customers will look for to support them, whether that be by phone, mail or chat. When you notice the same questions coming up time and time again, you create support articles that our clients can refer to, or automate chat answers for rapid-response. That way, our clients can get the responses they need as soon as possible while you don't end up feeling like a broken record. When there are new or unique questions, you know how to prioritise and resolve these efficiently and effectively because you have stellar time-management and problem-solving skills, and you also just really enjoy customer service. And of course, when those questions or issues fall outside of your area, you create bug tickets for our development team who will take it from there.   

In addition, you’re the master of:
  • Understanding the needs of customers and translating them into successful solutions

  • Delivering basic technical product support 

  • Fielding a lot of inbound calls, emails and chats from customers who need help and identifying when it’s appropriate to request support in escalation management

  • Responding and resolving issues in time, based on ticket priorities

  • Building user happiness, during and after a resolved ticket

  • Giving timely, clear, concise and complete communications to both our clients and to the FunXtion team

Besides being a customer-focused problem-solver, you:

  • Have previous experience in a customer service role 

  • Have a desire to work in a fast-paced, challenging environment and proactively seek to resolve problems

  • Take strong ownership, bias for action, and a willingness to roll up your sleeves

  • Have a great deal of empathy that allows you to connect with your customer over both their successes and their frustrations

  • Are fluent in English another language is a bonus 

And in return you get:

  • Money - hooray!

  • A dynamic position at a fast-growing scale-up in the health and fitness industry with plenty of room for personal growth, creativity and responsibility.

  • A delicious homemade lunch every day. Think: poké bowls, soups, salads, and sandwiches - even protein shakes if that tickles your fancy. Plus, we always have a huge fruit basket and an endless supply of tea and coffee. Mmm, coffee.

  • To be a part of a close-knit team that gets the most out of themselves and you.

  • Good secondary employment conditions and free access to our digital workouts for you to enjoy!

Do you think we could be a perfect match?
