What you will get to do

Support Guides build trust and happiness within the Hipcamp community by responding to camper and host tickets with confidence and empathy by phone, email, and social media. Our Guides are resident experts on the platform and typically have a wealth of knowledge and experience with camping in general. The Support Team works cross-functionally with every other team at Hipcamp to bring the voice of the community to the wider company.

Support Guides are on the front lines talking to the Hipcamp community. They report on data and share narratives from customer conversations that inform product and policy improvements. Having an eye for larger trends while providing attentive, human service is at the heart of what we do on the Hipcamp Support team.
