Look forward to getting out of bed each morning! Blello is looking for a Customer Experience Specialist for our growing Back Bay, Boston office.

Blello is a sleep-obsessed company focused on providing an educational, unbiased approach to helping people find their perfect mattress. We want our customers to have a friendly, stress-free shopping experience that leads to their best night’s sleep ever. That’s why our product was designed with an equal balance of softness and support, so dreamers can sleep comfy and cool and wake rested and refreshed!

As the first impression of Blello, the Customer Experience Specialist will be an integral part of our help center as the face (and voice) behind the company. They will work directly with customers, helping with purchases, set ups, returns and any other questions they have along the way. They should also be adaptable; we’re a start-up company and that means we’ll need help with necessary tasks that might be unrelated to customer service. But with this responsibility and flexibility comes great opportunities for growth at Blello!
