Customer Service Rep
Reed Art & Imaging – Lakewood, CO

What do people say about you? Do they call you upbeat? Personable? Confident? How about intuitive? Fastidious? Friendly? If what they say about you is true, then you’re probably just who we need. And, if you can check the “yes” boxes for positive attitude, strong work ethic, and skilled communicator, then that might just seal the deal.

We have a fulltime opening on our customer support team for that rare person who embodies positivity and flourishes under the challenge of changing demands and priorities. We know our expectations are high, but it’s because that’s exactly who we want representing our company to our artist clients! If your adrenaline is pumping right now, that might be you. So, here’s the final gut-check: Do you intuitively know how to communicate with artistic professionals? Are you teachable, adaptable, flexible, and a team player? Do you get fired up when all your I’s are dotted and your T’s are crossed? If that’s you, we invite you to apply to be our next Customer Service Rep.

Partial list of what you’ll be doing:

  • Learn everything about what we create here (don’t worry, we’ll teach you)

  • Serve as the “Face of Reed” and make our walk-in clients feel welcome and like they’re in good hands

  • Answer phones and satisfactorily address client questions, or transfer calls to someone who can

  • Listen to the client’s needs and lead them to the product that is the best solution

  • Prepare and input orders for production after face-to-face client meetings, phone consultations, and online order requests

  • Take payments (credit cards, cash, checks)

The must-haves:

  • Exceptional, intuitive people skills with 2+ years of sales or customer service experience
  • Experience or knowledge of fine art reproduction, photography, digital printing and/or graphic arts would be awesome, but we can talk if your unrelated experience is strong
  • Ability to clearly communicate with creative professionals, both verbally and in writing
  • Detail-oriented and focused
  • Can responsively self-manage, multi-task, and meet deadlines with limited supervision
  • Comfort with everyday usage of desktop computer and a variety of software
  • Steady, consistent work history
  • Reliable transportation
  • Can stand for extended periods of time and lift 20lbs
