Customer Support - TRAK HQ Nanaimo
Customer Support: TRAK HQ Nanaimo
TRAK manufactures and globally markets the Ultimate Touring Kayak; the only truly portable sea kayak in the world. Because our kayak fits in a wheeled travel pack and sets up in 10 minutes, it can be taken anywhere, which gives owners the freedom to easily reach some of the most beautiful locations in the world!
TRAK is building a hub in Nanaimo and the Gulf Islands for paddling-focused experiences that enhance vitality, improve wellness and mental health, giving people a deep connection to nature, the outdoors, and specifically the sacred waters of the Salish Sea, and bodies of water the world over.
We are currently seeking a genuine leader to foster customer support and to join our headquarters team. This is an intermediate-level position with the opportunity to grow, both in responsibilities and compensation. We are looking for someone who has proven to themselves and others that they are a self-starter and have the view of the customer and the spirit of an owner to apply to an expansive role; from order and sales management, sales systems, and back-end systems maintenance and development to customer communication, in person, on the phone and by email. Because we are a young company, every team member’s ideas are encouraged, explored and then possibly implemented. You must be committed to being impeccable in your work and love to be in service of customers and the TRAK team. It’s just who you are.
This role is a “front lines role”, so critical to our success. Ideally, you’re a paddler or have kayaking experience or at least passionate about outdoor pursuits. Ideally you have the skills and experience to jump between basic customer communication and systems documentation and maintenance. The key to all of this is your passion to do something extraordinary. You are not ordinary by nature. You’ve been looking for a professional opportunity that can be a vehicle to exercise your passion and skills.

- Preference will be given to a kayaker or paddler. We want you to have fun, and that includes kayaking. We encourage everyone on our team to kayak and get time outdoors. It’s good for the soul!
