Careers

Who we are

Telling you about job requirements probably isn’t as helpful as describing characteristics of the people who are already succeeding at Softworks. All of us have a a mix of technical and customer service skills.

What we want

Communication Skills

An accent is awesome (more flavor) but you need to be totally comfortable in English both oral and written. If you speak a second language – bonus points! You need to love talking with customers.

Active Learners

The best people are the ones who know they don’t know everything. We’re looking for people who are always looking for the best ways to do things and stay on top of the latest trends in whatever they’re doing.

Leaders

We need people willing to take the bull by the horns to get the job done. We want people who aren’t afraid to try new things and are always on the lookout for the best way to accomplish a goal or objective.

What we offer

Remote Work Opportunities

Imagine not having to argue with traffic every day, and being able to work from the comfort of your own home. Softworks offers a remote work program that allows employees to work a portion of their week from their home office, and it’s easier on the environment!

Insurance and Benefits

Life can be expensive, so let us shoulder some of the burden. Softworks offers a comprehensive benefits package for full-time employees, including prescription drug and dental coverage, eye exams, and insurance policies to help protect you and the ones you care about.

Work/Life Balance

We understand that life doesn’t always work around your job schedule. That’s why we offer a flexible PTO program; whether you’re sick, have a family emergency, or just need to rest up, we let you take the time you need to be able to give us your best.
