Are you passionate about performance cars? Do you spend an unhealthy amount of time on auto enthusiast forums researching modifications and discussing them with anyone willing to listen? If you’re determined to find a job that combines your career with your passion, this is your chance! This is an exciting opportunity for those who would like to jump-start a career in the motorsport industry, but don’t have the technical knowledge our Senior Product Expert positions require.

As a Jr. Product Expert, you’ll play a vital role in bridging the gap between our Sales and Customer Service teams and supporting company growth. You’ll work on the front lines in a fast-paced environment interacting with track enthusiasts and racers daily. Your objective is to decrease response times and provide world-class customer service that APEX is known for.

The majority of your interactions will be via email, car forums, and over the phone. Although you’ll take pride in your one-on-one customer interactions, real success will come from your ability to identify shortcomings of our current systems and processes and help management implement new efficient and effective solutions to improve the customer experience. You will have a front-row seat to how the company functions from the inside out, and once you’ve mastered your role you will have the opportunity to take on new challenges and roles.
