We improve our customers’ experience by making our documentation better and more self-service and we contribute code in order to make our product better.
Aid the technical success of our customers by resolving their problems and making our product and their experience better
- Customer Satisfaction (CSAT)
- SLA Achievement (Time to First Response)
We want to deliver our customers with an exceptional customer experience. Customer Satisfaction (CSAT) is the most important measurement of our success. Questions and issues will always arise - the experience that we provide to our customers in those moments is our ultimate north star.
Our main SLA (service level agreement) on tickets is time to first response (TTFR). We aim to meet this 95% of the time. Meeting the SLA requires a thoughtful first response that summarizes the troubleshooting the support engineer has already done or will do, as well as next steps. A response of “we are on it” is not be sufficient for us to count as successfully meeting SLA.
- Persistently working toward and/or seeking resolution that works equally for our customers and us
- Staying at least a step ahead (summarizing current status, giving clear next steps, and setting expectations in every communication)
- Being flexible and open, maintaining a first principles thinking approach, and always confronting and growing past our biases
- Outgrowing ourselves, the way we work, and continuously improving
- Sharing our learnings through our official documentation so that customers have a single source of truth
Our SLAs are defined in our docs page here.
