This is a critical and important role as many of our Creators are using an online learning platform for the first time and are moving their content online for the first time! Teachable support is a competitive differentiator, and our Creators frequently sing our praises. Our Customer Care Team has the unique opportunity to build relationships and work with our creators, directly impacting their success.
