Customer Support Specialist



Customer Service
Edinburgh, UK
Posted on Friday, September 15, 2023

PlayerData is on the hunt for a sport savvy, technically-minded team player to join our Customer Support team. We pride ourselves on our ability to understand the customer perspective and fulfil their needs quickly and efficiently so knowledge of field sports is a must. You must be organised and have high attention to detail and, ideally, have some experience (or be working towards a degree) in a sports related discipline such as Sports Science or Sports Management. Alternatively, you could be a marketing buff and be looking to get into Marketing, PR or Comms in the sport sector.


This is a shift-based role split between direct customer support and shipping. On support, you will cover our various support lines, providing direct support and helping to analyse data to our current customer base across the UK and Ireland and to our emerging customer base in the US. You will be responsible for reacting to issues and testing new features on behalf of the customer. The rest of your time will be spent in shipping - preparing and sending customer orders and getting the customer onboarded quickly and efficiently.

You will need to be a good problem solver and quick on your feet to be able to respond to queries and resolve issues as quickly as possible. Passion for sport and a knack with people are an absolute must in this role. You will be the customer’s main point of contact within the company.
