Jobs - Customer Service Associate

Who We Are

Ski The East is a fast growing company based in Williston, VT with a casual office atmosphere and plenty of excellent microbreweries, farm-to-table restaurants, and a giant lake right down the street. Did we mention the beautiful Green Mountains nearby that have the deepest snow and best ski resorts in the region?

Our brand has been building the finest ski lifestyle clothing since 2005 all while shredding Volkswagen-sized moguls, neck deep powder, and rock hard ice with a smile on our faces. This year we’re looking to grow the Ski The East team and expand on exciting new opportunities… in March we launched a new sustainable outdoor lifestyle brand, Eastward.

 

Who We're Looking For

Do you know the Ski The East brand and outdoor industries well? Can you “talk the talk” on the phone and “type the type” in emails as a representative of us? Are you an empathetic and patient person who loves to problem solve? Can you help our fans and customers have the best service experience on the planet? Can you help them walk away more stoked on our brand after an issue comes up than if they’d never had an issue at all? Are you tech savvy, a fast typer, an outgoing conversationalist, and can handle stressful situations with the calm demeanor of a Jedi knight? 

If you answered yes to these, live (or can relocate to) within daily commuting distance of Williston, VT, and have a reasonably well developed sense of humor, then you just might be the right candidate for noble entry into our Wolf Pack. This job will be part time (20 hours/week) to start, with potential opportunities for full time.
