Job Description

Ethena delivers modern, effective workplace eLearning. Our first product, harassment prevention training, focuses on culture change over compliance. In addition, we are in an exciting phase of growth where we are expanding our product offerings to also include everywhere ethical decisions are made (think Code of Conduct, Anti-Corruption, and other financial and legally-oriented courses).  Ethena is trusted by some of the most innovative companies including Netflix, Zendesk, Figma, and Medium. We are a Series A-stage company, backed by top-tier investors like Felicis Ventures, GSV, Homebrew, and Neo.

• Represent the voice of the customer internally: capture, categorize, and share customer feedback cross-functionally to drive important improvements to Ethena’s product and customer experience

• Identify and act on opportunities to improve systems, processes, and resources for customers to help our team scale


What makes a great candidate:

• 2-3 years of experience in Customer Support/Experience (preferably in SaaS)

• Highly organized with acute attention to detail

Proactive drive to solve problems and contribute to the growth and success of customers and teammates
