What you will do:
- Deep understanding of the employer lifecycle to influence a positive experience. You have relevant industry experience (group retirement space is a key asset) to quickly gain a deep understanding of the plan in order to be able to problem solve and influence a positive employer experience. You will be working alongside your manager (Senior Director of Operations) and the other members of the customer success team to support each employer through complex administrative and technical situations. You will act as a subject matter expert within the Customer Success team to support our employer sponsors, which involves both onboarding and ongoing technical support to ensure the delivery of an exceptional employer experience. We have a robust employer administrative dashboard that you will be navigating and proactively triaging any issues that come up. Providing exceptional client service over multiple communication channels such as phone, chat and email while updating the case tracking system are tasks you can expect to execute on an everyday basis.
- Improve the Customer Success department. As a fast-growing organization, there are continuous opportunities to add value internally to our department. For example, you will be asked to aid in building out the tools to support our clients by creating client support collateral such as FAQs and training videos. You will work cross-functionally with various teams within the organization to ensure alignment of client support. Internal features are being rolled out constantly, and you will need to make sure you have processes and procedures documented and set up. You will be the first to identify problems and/or risks that may prevent clients from getting the most out of the product and recommending opportunities to address their problems.
- Facilitate onboarding activities. Hands-on onboarding activities are a breeze for you. You have a good understanding of data and plan design requirements in order to capture and customize the onboarding process for our various employers and their employees. A major part of being successful is working with various people within the organization, such as the onboarding lead and sales team to ensure timelines are met and employers receive an exceptional onboarding experience. You will provide ongoing maintenance and support to employers in their role as administrator. Some onboarding activities include speaking with new employers to support them with their administration role. You will be required to understand the new employer and support using PowerPoint presentations, demos, and 1-1 conversations.
- Improve adoption of the platform. Upon completion of the various onboarding activities, you will be responsible for making sure clients are deriving value from the product. You are a pro when it comes to the backend operations work. You love working with our dashboards and analyzing data and usage patterns in order to get a better understanding of where the gaps and opportunities may be. You will be troubleshooting, problem solving, and diagnosing technical issues while escalating problems to relevant internal parties as necessary.
Who you are:
- Attention to detail. Your attention to detail is often what sets you apart from others. You’re meticulous in how you plan, organize, track and monitor projects and data. You will be using your attention to detail skills regularly in your everyday work.
- Problem solver. You enjoy solving problems in order to help the user better leverage the product and manage their administrative duties. You thrive when looking through dashboards and analyzing feedback to understand user activities and devise a plan to improve the client experience. You consistently demonstrate ownership over your role – this can mean triaging the problem to the proper people in order to help you solve the issue.
- Technologically inclined. You are able to adapt to various technologies and have often been referred to as someone who can learn new systems quickly. We work with Microsoft, ZenDesk, Hubspot, and a variety of other systems.
- Customer-driven. Your work will be very closely tied to our customers to inform decision-making for Common Wealth and the product. You are great at balancing the current and future needs of the business while producing results for our customers. You listen well and know how to put yourself in someone else’s shoes.
- Effective communicator. You can easily impact and engage with a range of people both internal and external, while masterfully personalizing your approach in order to reach your goal. You are able to summarize and communicate your thoughts very clearly with a broad range of stakeholders. You are professional and courteous in your communication style with a diverse group of people, including both employers and plan members, as well other external and internal stakeholders. You always use your best judgment of what you can and can’t advise on when creating solutions for clients.
- You are comfortable with the unknown. We are a fast-growing company and often have a variety of priorities at one time which change frequently. You need to be comfortable working in an environment that will continue to evolve. You thrive in uncertainty and are able to help bring organization to the customer success department. You are continually honing your craft and keeping up with the best tools for the job.
