About the role

We want you on our Customer Experience team to join us in our mission to ensure that our customers’ and soon-to-be customers’ interactions with Nutshell (the company and the product) are as effortless as they are delightful.

To apply, send your resume and a cover letter to jobs@nutshell.com. We can’t wait to hear from you!

As a Customer Success Specialist, helping people achieve their business goals with Nutshell will be your primary objective. You are a solutions-oriented customer advocate, and you will be a Nutshell evangelist with infectious enthusiasm for what can be achieved with our CRM.

You’ll have a direct impact on thousands of small and medium-sized organizations across the country (and the world) every day. You’ll also contribute to the growth of our company by making it easy for people to get up and running with Nutshell.

Who you are

You are authentic and empathetic, but at the same time, you have a touch of perfectionism and a slight obsession with efficiency. You approach problems strategically, even under pressure from frustrated customers and soon-to-be customers. If someone is having a hard time, you really care and want to make things better.

Technology is your friend when it comes to communicating and troubleshooting, but do you know where the pixels end and humanity begins? Does picking up the phone or jumping on a video call to learn more about customers from all industries and walks of life excite you? Do you have the head of a techie and a heart of gold?


  • Manage attentive and creative communication with our customers via email, chat, phone, screen share, or webcast to answer questions, solve problems, and encourage engagement with our software
  • Share the voice of the customer! Doggedly advocate for them within the company
  • Demonstrate the value of our product; we show people how awesome it is and how it helps them meet their business objectives
  • Enrich our self-service support library
  • Troubleshoot and perform quality assurance, identifying bugs and other problems within Nutshell


  • You are knowledgeable about current technologies and are driven to continue learning
  • You are a strong, concise communicator who can explain things clearly and thoughtfully over any channel (writing, speaking, screencasting, video recording, etc.)
  • You have experience in technical writing or helpdesk content creation
  • You do things elegantly and efficiently, and are always thinking of new solutions to help yourself and others avoid friction in their day-to-day workflows
  • You have increased customer acquisition and retention with your impeccable customer service in the past

Nice to have

  • You understand various business models and industries and know how to help customers conceptualize and implement Nutshell for the greatest possible benefit
  • You have experience with account management, working directly with software engineers or as part of a sales team
  • You have used CRM or helpdesk software

5 reasons to make Nutshell your new home (figuratively speaking, of course)

#1 We need people who can make an impact

Nutshell is a growth-stage business with very ambitious goals. If you never back down from a challenge, we want you.

#2 We’re solving meaningful problems in innovative ways

Know any cool small businesses? We know (and love) thousands of them! That’s why we’re designing, building, marketing, and supporting cutting-edge software that helps small businesses thrive.

#3 We’re proud to support the Ann Arbor community

Ann Arbor is one of the region’s tech success stories and Nutshell is an established member of that community. We host the SE Michigan JavaScript Meetup right in our own office, and Nutshellers have been featured presenters at numerous conferences, including The Small Business Web Summit, CodeMash, Detroit Dev Day, BrightConf, Girl Develop It, and the Great Lakes Software Excellence Conference.

#4 We work in the heart of the action

Nutshell’s modern, energetic office in downtown Ann Arbor is within walking distance of everything, and loaded with all the resources our team needs to create amazing things.

#5 We’ll treat you right

Nutshell offers established-company perks (competitive compensation, health benefits, 401(k) matching, paid parental leave, family-friendly outings, and an experienced leadership team), plus all the trappings of a startup (offsites in northern Michigan, impromptu happy hours, an office book club, and desks that go up AND down).
