Customer Experience Specialist, Phone Support

Relay

Relay

Customer Service
Vancouver, BC, Canada
Posted on Friday, May 19, 2023
Our mission is to increase the success rate of small businesses. Traditional banking has been a growth limiter rather than a growth enabler for business owners, and we’re changing that. Relay is the all-in-one, collaborative money management platform. We’re building for employer SMBs and their finance function, internal and external, and are focused on delivering a human-centric customer experience. Ultimately, we help SMBs be ‘on the money'.
Relay is entering an exciting new chapter of growth. We’re looking to expand our team of Customer Experience Specialists to help us scale our Customer Support engine. This is a unique opportunity to support our growing customer base and become a product knowledge expert in all things Relay and Fintech.
Joining Relay means an opportunity to make a huge impact in building solutions with the potential to reach 29 million small businesses across North America. If you thrive on growth and solving real customer problems, we want to hear from you!
Please note: Candidates must be located in the Greater Vancouver Area. Working hours are Monday to Friday from 9:00 am - 5:30 pm PST (hours may change based on business needs). We are looking for people who have flexibility and are open to working Canada/US statutory holidays.

What You'll Be Doing:

  • Engage and support customers primarily via phone (Zendesk Talk) in an empathetic, professional and proactive manner. You'll be trained on email support to provide flexibility within the department, but phone will be the main means of communication
  • Prioritize the customer experience by taking opportunities to build meaningful connections with customers that go beyond small talk (show interest in the customer and their business)
  • Investigate and problem-solve together with team members from Engineering, Risk, Product, and beyond to troubleshoot customer issues and get results in a timely manner
  • Own and improve our public support knowledge base by creating and updating articles that equip our customers with actionable steps for their inquiries
  • Track data and learnings from customer interactions that deliver meaningful insights for product and process improvement
  • Collaborate closely with Marketing, Product, and Engineering on customer pilots, new feature launches and more!

Who You Are:

  • You have 1+ years of experience working in customer support or a customer-facing role
  • You are a clear, concise and personable communicator both verbally and written
  • You have a team-first mentality and take opportunities to share learnings and learn from your fellow team members
  • You have deep empathy for customers and balance being resourceful and direct with customers
  • You have fine-tuned prioritization skills to maximize your impact
  • You have the ability to rise to a challenge; you can handle change, conflict management, and uncertainty at times
  • You are naturally curious, you love to understand the “why” behind a problem or question and aren’t afraid to dig deep into problem-solving
  • You are proactive and you find opportunities to fill gaps and make redundant or outdated tasks into more efficient processes
  • Bonus Points:
  • You have experience working with customer support tools or ticketing systems (Zendesk or similar)
  • You have prior tech start-up experience or worked in a fast-paced environment

Our Commitment To You:

  • Competitive salary and meaningful equity: every team member gets a piece of the pie.
  • Comprehensive health benefits: we offer full health benefits + an HSA/WSA starting from day 1 so you get the coverage you need.
  • Considerable vacation: we take time off to reset and recharge so we come back better for our customers.
  • Hybrid/Remote work: this role is primarily remote at this time but will transition to hybrid when we open an office in Vancouver. We also love collaborating and connecting in our Toronto office – you'll come to Toronto for onboarding and then twice a year for our summer and winter events (travel and accommodations are covered). On top of this, we reimburse costs 1-2 times a week for you to visit a local co-working space and maybe even meet up with another team member depending on your location. For the days we spend at home, you will need a dedicated and private room to conduct phone calls confidentially.
  • Personal and professional growth: support from leaders who care about your growth and success through regular feedback and coaching. Our goal is to make Relay a step-change career opportunity.
  • Top-tier equipment: we’ll make sure you have everything you need to produce your best work.
  • Team-first culture: we’re passionate about working collaboratively, bonding through team events, and most importantly having fun.

The Interview Process:

  • Stage 1: A 30-minute Google Meets video call with a member of the Talent team
  • Stage 2: A writing sample about customer experience
  • Stage 3: A 45-minute Google Meets video call with two members of the Customer Experience team
  • Stage 4: A 30-minute Google Meets video call with a member of the Leadership team
  • The expected salary range for this position is $47,000 to $55,000 base. Actual pay will be determined based on several factors such as past experience and qualifications, geographic location, and other job-related factors permitted by law.
Research shows that women-identifying and other marginalized individuals tend to only apply when they meet 100% of the qualifications; if you don't have all the listed qualifications, we encourage you to apply anyway!
What’s Important to Us:
At Relay, we believe that diversity is key to building high-performing teams, and creating an inclusive work environment is our priority. We are an equal-opportunity employer and we welcome people of diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and skills.
We will work with applicants to provide accommodations at any stage of the hiring process. If you require accommodations during the interview process, please email your People Team contact, and we will work with you to meet your needs.
