About the Brand

We started Flamingo because we thought it was time we got some honestly good products for our body care routines. (And because we're all hairy in places.)

We're the first brand born out of Harry’s Labs, the innovation arm of Harry's Inc. Since Harry's launched in 2013, over a million women have used and loved the products. To a collective of women on the Harry's team, it became clear that we could create Harry's-quality product designed for the ways women were actually using them — like on their legs, underarms, bikini lines and toes. 

We’ve talked to thousands of women to truly understand their hair removal needs. With this knowledge we’ve designed every single aspect of the experience, from razors to wax kits. Every role at Flamingo is dedicated to making the hair removal process a little more enjoyable.

About the Team:

At Flamingo, the customer is at the core of everything that we do. The Customer Experience Team serves as the bridge between our brand and the amazing people who use our products. We're the voice of Flamingo and advocate for our customers to the rest of the team. We make sure that every customer interaction is something really special.

About the Role:

As a Part Time Customer Experience Associate for Flamingo, you’ll be on the ground floor at this new brand ensuring that our customers have a smooth interaction and experience. You’ll work alongside the Flamingo team and this brand’s Customer Experience Manager to execute on delivering an amazing customer experience. You will make customers feel like they are receiving a world class education on our product suite; they will feel supported and loved throughout their correspondences with us. Additionally, you’ll work to develop an engaging customer community using our brand voice and become a product guru and friend to our customers! This role is 20-25 hours a week and has some flexibility. 

What you will accomplish:

  • Become an expert on our suite of body care plus hair removal products and spread the love of the brand everywhere
  • Create instant rapport with our customers to deliver above-and-beyond customer service
  • Speak with customers over the phone to help place orders or manage their accounts
  • Foster a community and engage connections between Flamingo and its consumers
  • Identify trends in real-time and communicate these trends clearly to Flamingo CX Manager and team
  • Master our internal management system in order to efficiently and effectively manage customer relationships
  • Thrive in a fast-paced environment tackling an array of customer issues

This should describe you:

  • Clear communicator with excellent reading comprehension and writing skills - you can chat with coworkers in real-time while answering customer emails at a rapid pace
  • Customer centric mentality
  • Interest in beauty, skincare and body care
  • Excellent computer and technical skills, including experience with Microsoft Office, the Google Suite, previous CRM tools like Zendesk a plus
  • Operationally aware: Can adhere to an ops schedule and clearly communicate any time away
  • A strong work ethic and an entrepreneurial spirit
  • Strong listening skills and a great conversationalist
  • Ability to problem solve and think on your feet, with analytical skills a huge plus
  • You take initiative to solve problems and have the ability to put yourself in the customer's shoes
  • General awesomeness
  • A sense of humor

Here's who you'll work with:

  • Awesome Flamingo CX Associates who make the everyday fun (GIFs highly encouraged!)

Harry’s Inc. started in 2013 with simple, fairly priced products that delivered an amazing experience to guys every day. Since then, Harry’s expanded to the UK, developed relationships with retailers such as Target and Walmart, expanded our grooming brand into a personal care powerhouse, and launched a women’s brand called Flamingo.

The key to our success? Our amazing people. From chemists, mechanical engineers, CX associates, to creative directors, sourcing managers, and logistics specialists, Harry’s team is comprised of some of the most brilliant, diverse, and humble people you’ll ever meet.

Come for the coffee and free products, stay for the amazing, passionate culture.

An Insider's view of Harry's

What are some social events your company does?

Inspired by the Winter Olympics, we're currently holding our own Harry's Olympics. It's completely ridiculous and incredibly fun! We also have happy hours, breakfasts, lunch and learns, and team offsites. I love joining smaller groups that connect me with people I don't work with everyday.

Maia

Senior Associate, Creative Projects

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

As Harry's expands beyond razors, we are focused on building a platform that can support multiple brands, which is transforming our technical infrastructure. We're also collaborating with our data analytics team to better understand our customers, both present and future, and serve personalized and curated experiences to them.

Natalie

Software Engineer

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

Besides working in an open office (where I’m quite literally always accessible), each week my co-founder & I speak at our all-hands meeting, allowing us to openly share what’s on our minds. We host Q&As, Fireside Chats, Lunch N’ Learns, & I co-sponsor our Women’s Employee Resource Group, where I work with folks at all levels within the company.

CEO
