Do you have a passion for motivating teams to achieve goals? Enjoy juggling multiple tasks and priorities to create the best possible customer experience. Want to design a customer experience that keeps people coming back? We might be looking for you.

Our Support team at komoot is highly experienced and manages a lot with few people. We provide email support in six languages, offer weekend coverage, and have built an extremely effective support center.

We’re now in the middle of a transformation that shifts the focus of our four full-time team members towards operational tasks and projects while building up a team of freelancers to keep the ticket queue in great shape.

Ready for your next adventure?

What you’ll do

  • Lead a remote team of 4 customer support managers, as well as eight freelancers.
  • Develop a world-class customer service experience for our users, including great queue management and excellent self-service.
  • Enhance overall customer support efficiency and performance by improving the squad’s processes.
  • Identify bottlenecks in the current process and spot opportunities for technical and functional improvements and automation, and then you will turn them into practical solutions.
  • Oversee day-to-day operations, coordinate team efforts to ensure knowledge-sharing and effective communication, and help to create an inspiring team environment.
  • Monitor and analyze performance, set clear team goals, and deploy strategies to achieve them.
  • Improve customer service experience for our users, create engaged customers, and facilitate organic growth.
  • Keep building on existing self-service solutions and introduce more as needed. Our goal is to build a scalable and sustainable support team.
  • Work with developers and QA to find and solve critical bugs in the wild.

Why you’ll love it

  • You’ll work with/on a product that encourages people to enjoy the great outdoors and live the best possible life they can every day.
  • The team is already in great shape, with many stable structures and processes. You’ll have the opportunity to improve a working system rather than having to build from the ground up.
  • You can set ambitious goals and aim for them. We want to create an environment that enables development and growth while providing a fantastic customer experience.
  • You’ll work in a fast-paced environment with colleagues who are experts in their field, love what they do, and enjoy spending their free time outside cycling, hiking and exploring more of the great outdoors.
  • We let you work from wherever you want, be it a beach, the mountains, your house or anywhere else that lies in any time zone located between UTC-1 and UTC+3.
  • You’ll travel together with our team to unique outdoor places several times a year to exchange ideas and learnings and go for hikes and rides.


You’ll be successful in this position if you

  • Have proven experience with leading teams (3+ years).
  • Have proven experience working in high-quality and efficient customer service (5+ years).
  • Possess outstanding leadership, decision-making, and people skills. You are a charismatic and hands-on leader who motivates and guides the team to achieve great results.
  • Are great at leading experienced individual contributors and helping them develop their careers further, as well as managing change.
  • Are highly self-driven, responsible, and keen to improve. You love learning and finding solutions.
  • Have in-depth knowledge of performance metrics, SLAs, and improving support processes.
  • Are data-driven and excellent at creating reports that question (or back up) your gut feelings.
  • Have experience in using and optimizing Zendesk.
  • Open to working on weekends some of the time. As we offer weekend coverage, it’s sometimes necessary.
  • You speak excellent English and excellent German.
