What we offer at Help Scout

Company Values

Happy to Help

Help is our first name. We show up for others, not because we have to, but because we want to. We share knowledge and give freely by default, and operate with generosity and empathy for each other, our customers, and our community. After all, there is no I in team (or software).

Craft over Convention

Although it’s tempting to follow a well-worn path, we push ourselves to run beyond it — even when that sets us apart from our peers. We’re building a culture where it’s safe to be ambitious and hold each other to high standards. That’s why we obsess over the last 10%, because it shows up for our customers and the business in powerful ways.

Progress not Perfection

The work of building a product, culture, and brand is never done – we ship our best effort, listen, iterate, then repeat. Seeking progress requires the vulnerability to be curious, humble, and hungry to learn. Great ideas can come from anywhere, so we share our work openly, welcome the perspective of others, and continuously search for what can be improved.

Own the Outcome

Ownership is key to our collective success. We consider the impact on our team and our community before we act, and believe that trust and integrity are non-negotiable. To create a better future, our decisions are made with stakeholders today and ten years from now in mind.

Who You'll Work With

  • Jessica Liu, Data Team Manager. This role reports to Jessica. You’ll chat and collaborate with her often, receive mentorship, and build an understanding of the organization and its analysis needs.
  • Kyle Thompson, Senior Analytics Engineer. This role regularly works with Kyle, an integral Data team member. Analysts work with Kyle to determine whether we need the data, how best to organize and model it, and how to surface it in Looker.
  • Eli Overbey, VP of Revenue Operations. This role is part of the Revenue Operations division. You’ll learn how the business is doing and how the Revenue Operations team expects to support upcoming initiatives.
  • Shawna Fisher, CFO. The Revenue Operations division is part of the Business Team. Revenue Operations leads work closely with Shawna and the rest of the Finance team.

Compensation

Each role at Help Scout has a pay range aligned to our salary formula and based on national market data. We take a competency-based approach and pay is based on the level and band of your role. We assess leveling during the hiring process for new teammates, during our bi-annual performance review cycles, and when a teammate’s role changes.
