Job Description Thank you for taking the time to learn more about this role! Please note that we are looking for applications from those who currently reside within Japan.

We are looking for Bilingual Customer Service Specialists to help our ever growing diverse merchant (users of Shopify) base. Our merchants have amazing stories filled with highs and lows, frustrations, and triumphs. It is in these moments and many in between that you would make an impact. 

As a Bilingual Customer Service Specialist you’ll work remotely for a fast-growing global tech company from the comfort of home with your only commute being the one to your computer. You will work within our super supportive multilingual team, an exciting experience in itself as it grows and flexes to our merchants needs. 

In the role you can expect to be challenged and learn every day as you dig in and problem solve with merchants by listening deeply, actively teaching and exploring growth opportunities with the merchants. As part of that growth, you’ll be there to connect merchants with potential new features or plans to ensure they get the most out of the Shopify platform. 

Following 4 weeks of paid training you will transition into your new team and -- with the support from a tenured team member -- start digging into merchant emails. Shifts are 8 hours in length and are on a rotating schedule that include a combination of weekdays, weekends and holidays. This is a permanent full time role - 40 hours a week with no part time options being available. We offer paid holiday, paid sick days and a comprehensive compensation package with health benefits and other perks. 

If you’re up for the challenge and enjoy working in an inclusive, human centred, fast-paced high-pressure environment, we encourage you to apply and take part in our hiring process!

As we aim to provide you with as much information about the role early in the process so that you know what to expect throughout, more details will be included in the next step of the process should you be selected to move forward. 

Even if you have never held a similar position but you’re interested so far and relate to the things we’ve outlined below, we want to hear from you!
