What we're looking for πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™€οΈ

We're looking for someone who's up for being our first hire in this team. You will be at the front row, talking to customers, owning the relationship and helping them get the best out of Pento.

Please reach out if you're interested β€” even if you don't think you fully fit the description. We're happy to chat!

Your background

  • You've been part of a growing customer success function before and have experience with onboarding new customers.
  • You have experience working within fast-paced companies, ideally in B2B SaaS.
  • You are excited to be able to take ownership of the role and redesign it as our requirements evolve. You don't settle for the status quo, but challenge it.
  • You have strong project management skills. You always keep to deadlines and never let follow-up with customers slit your net.
  • You have demonstrated excellence in the past and are highly achievement orientated.
  • You are comfortable working within a remote team.
  • You have excellent (native or, at least at a very high proficiency) written and verbal English communication skills.

Your personality

  • You are very service-minded, always putting the customer first.
  • You have an entrepreneurial, problem-solver attitude. No problem is too big or too hard.
  • You like working independently, but you also know when to involve your colleagues and ask for help.
  • You have a continuous improvement mindset. You are constantly optimising your workflows and, as a result, our customer's experience.
  • You are hungry to learn. You know you don't know it all, and do what you can to help yourself and your teammates be better every day.
  • You work well with lots of questions and few answers. We're a startup trying to do something no one else has done before, which means we're dealing with a lot of questions and what-ifs.

What is Pento? πŸ€”

We're a technology company, not an accountancy, payroll bureau, or similar. We build beautiful payroll software that automates all manual workflows and we usually help companies cut 50-80% off the time they spend on payroll. That means no spreadsheets, no manual bank transfers, no e-mails, and no manual work. We've built an easy-to-use software product, that does all of this automatically. Our customers usually run payroll internally, but rely on us to give them world-class payroll support in case they have any questions - that's where you come in!
