Job Description

Job Type: Customer Service Specialist from home
Location: New York work from home
Company: Amazon

Amazon now lets you choose from three different ways to work: in-office, hybrid, and remotely.

In Office: Employees will work in an Amazon building where they will have an office and a desk. Employees will have to live close enough to their office that they can get there on their own.
• Hybrid: Employees will have to live within a reasonable distance of the office they are assigned to, but they will be able to work from home or the office on a regular basis. Employees who work in a “hybrid” way will have to go to their assigned office at least once a week. When they are in the office, these workers will use agile seating.
• Remote workers: Employees must live in the US, and their work will be synchronized with an AWS office based on their time zone. They don’t have to go to an office every day. Remote workers can come into an office for important trainings, meetings, and team-building events if they need to. When they are in the office, these workers will use agile seating.

The AWS Customer Service team helps a wide range of outside customers understand how AWS’s Cloud Computing Services can help them and what they can do with them. This team’s main job is to handle the most serious customer issues that have been brought to the attention of Amazon or AWS leaders and executives. We help customers with questions about their accounts and bills, and we talk to other Amazon departments to share the customer’s point of view and fix long-term problems.

As an Executive Customer Relations Specialist, you will be in charge of multiple workflows and will need to use critical thinking to solve very complicated issues that come from executives, Amazon and AWS leaders, and front-line teams. To solve these complicated problems, you need to dig deep to find out why customers are having problems, what policies are in place, how internal teams are communicating, and more. ECR is also a link between CS and non-CS teams, so you will know a lot about a wide range of services and tools that are available to both internal and external customers. You will help other departments solve high-impact, time-sensitive problems as quickly as possible.


• Give excellent customer service for billing, account access, and authentication questions, as well as general resource management, while keeping customer data safe.
• Know how to move through a confusing situation when solutions aren’t clear or don’t exist yet.
• Help with customer communication during AWS critical launches and support events • Take responsibility for developing and keeping up-to-date detailed knowledge of internal reference pages
• Have strong relationship-building skills that will help you influence peers and internal teams. • Be able to work well on your own.
• Write summaries of complicated, ongoing customer issues for executives and CS leadership.
This job does need someone who can work on the weekends and/or in the evenings.
