Why this opportunity exists

• Alpine enjoys a nationwide reputation for quality products and for providing genuinely helpful service. Alpine designs HVAC solutions for our customers nationwide. We ship heating and cooling equipment to our customers' homes or businesses and help them find local installers. We have a strong following and many repeat customers. Alpine experiences double-digit growth year over year. We are the largest and most tenured e-commerce retailer of heating and air conditioning equipment. Our customers give Alpine the highest ratings in our industry with an average score of 4.8 out of 5 across tens of thousands of reviews. • In this position, you will learn the ropes of online heating and air conditioning ecommerce and help resolve issues for homeowners and contractors around the country.

The ability to maintain professionalism while being genuinely helpful and not taking customer interactions personally is needed. Being emotionally resilient and learning how to take a problem and turn into a solution that makes things even better for the customer is an art and a science. Customers may need help with creating a new project in our system, paying for orders, tracking their shipments, changing their orders, getting new equipment if it's damaged or lost, help with replacement parts, help with warranties, help with delivery issues, assistance finding an installer, getting ETAs for when their orders will ship, figuring out how to get their products sooner etc. Some of these customer requests are straightforward and others require complex problem solving.
