Community Support Agent (German) at Zwift
London, GB


Who we are:


Zwift is a digital destination for fitness enthusiasts that’s redefining indoor exercise. We took the boring indoor routine and game-ified it, by developing an at-home training experience that connects cyclists and runners with each other around the world. We’re on a mission to make more people, more active, more often.


Launched from the sunny beaches of Long Beach, CA with offices in NYC, London, Rio de Janeiro, Tokyo, and Melbourne, the Zwift community is active in 195 countries (yup - more countries than the United Nations) and growing. We’re endlessly positive, relentlessly inventive, and always looking to improve…wanna join?


About the team:

We interact with members from around the globe by email, live chat and phone resolving problems with empathy and offering guidance that empowers our members to achieve their goals and get the most out of Zwift.


We interact with thousands of members per week, tracking the issues, and play an important role representing the voice of the community to the rest of the company to ensure we remain a community-driven organization.
