About the role
First things first: you want to know what you’re actually applying for. It’s impossible to capture every nuance of a role – especially at a rapidly growing company like Mews – but if we had to distil it down to a job description (which we do because this is a job description), it would be this:
As a Customer Support Representative, you will demonstrate a unique combination of people skills and tech savvy as you will be speaking/messaging/emailing with clients and helping them navigate any challenges they have with our hospitality cloud. It’s a unique opportunity where you will learn a ton and gain invaluable experience in a tech company with a startup vibe.
✅ Your mission, should you choose to accept it:
Develop an in-depth understanding of Mews’ solutions, serving as an ambassador to our customers, ensuring they are achieving great value from our products
Provide exceptional support for customers on technical issues via messaging, email and phone
Consult with customers proactively on ways to improve usage and efficiency
Become familiar with all integrated partner solutions to ensure that we match up the best-connected solutions based on customer needs
Build and retain rapport with appointed “Mews person” at customer sites

Higher Education preferably in Hotel Management / IT / Business
Professional experience in customer support

Permission to work in The Czech Republic

Shift Pattern – Because our clients run 24/7 businesses, the Customer Support Team needs to be available 24/7.

Typically this will be; MS Teams Interview with a Recruiter, MS Teams Interview with a Team Supervisor or Manager; Written Task and Recorded Video Interview, Final Interview with Senior Manager from Team

Who is Mews?
We want to get to know you, so it’s only fair we tell you a little bit about ourselves first. Mews has been transforming hospitality since 2012. What began in a single hotel in Prague now powers thousands of hotels around the world, as they pursue their mission to develop transformational solutions for brands and create remarkable experiences for guests.
Since the beginning, Mews embraced being different. Mews is not simply a property management system, but a connected hospitality cloud with products across the hotel ecosystem and more integrations than anyone else.
From global hospitality brands to independent properties, hoteliers join Mews because they recognize the power of innovation. They understand that they can benefit from hotel tech that drives efficiency, maximizes revenue, and improves guest happiness.
Mews serves over 3,000 properties across more than 70 countries around the globe and works with a huge number of hotel tech partners to provide hoteliers with an unbeatable connectivity – no other solution offers as many integrations.
At the 2020 HotelTechAwards, Mews was voted Best PMS by industry peers. Mews was also a Best PMS Finalist in 2021 and 2022, as well as being named Best Place to Work in Hotel Tech in the same years. Mews ranked 24th in the FT 1000 fastest growing European companies in 2021.
Life at Mews
That’s what we do, but what about who we are? Mews’ culture is special and difficult to capture in words, which makes writing this tricky. You’ll experience the freedom to be yourself and the ability to watch your ideas come to life. You’ll have an open line of communication and an open invitation to after-work drinks, be they virtual or in-person. Sometimes the work can be challenging and there can be a lot of it, but you’ll always be able to rely on those around you.
Yes, we’re ambitious and we move fast, but we know the value of fun and taking a breather. Every month we have a Wellness Wednesday, a day off that you can use to boost your health, whether that’s a long lie-in, a trip to the gym, or anything in between. We have slack channels for almost every interest imaginable, and an all-company meeting every Friday gives you the chance to ask any question to our leadership team.
Oh, and we love our pets ❤️. To get more of an idea what life at Mews is like (and to see dozens of cute cats, dogs, and hamsters), check out our Instagram . We’re guided by our five key values; if you see yourself in them, it’s time to get in touch.
✊ Everyone is welcome at Mews
This part is straightforward. We’re an equal opportunity employer and truly value diversity within our company. We never have and never will discriminate on the basis of race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, disability status – or anything else for that matter.
