Account Support Specialist
ABOUT HUMAN INTEREST
Human Interest is a Y Combinator-backed company that offers an easy and affordable 401(k) retirement plan for the modern workforce. Current 401(k) solutions for small businesses are built on legacy software, involve physical paper forms, and are sold with kickbacks to financial advisors whose interests are misaligned with the financial well-being of their clients. We've built an automated, paperless 401(k) that makes it possible for small businesses to offer a 401(k) benefit to their employees
We're a Series A company disrupting a massive but broken industry through empowering businesses of any size to safeguard the financial futures of their employees -- something that only 14% are able to do today. We’re proud to be working with over a thousand businesses across the entire country!
Human Interest is hiring an additional Customer Support Representative, who will be on the front lines helping people make the most of their 401(k) savings and get on the right path to a secure financial future. Process-driven and people-focused - you may be early in your career, but you are organized, friendly, flexible, and determined to make an impact at an early-stage startup. You are also self-starter and enjoy learning new programs, systems and tools.
As an Customer Support Representative, you'll build relationships with our customers, handle inbound customer inquiries and troubleshoot issues related to our customers' 401(k) retirement accounts. Our customers are at the core of our business, and our Support team is crucial in giving our customers the best experience possible.
This is a full-time role with competitive salary and benefits, based in our downtown San Francisco office.
What you get to do everyday
- Manage a high volume of inbound client inquiries, over the phone and through email
- Work cross-functionally with internal and external partners to solve client issues
- Identify common issues and trends, driving process improvements to solve them permanently
What you bring to the role
- 1+ years of experience in a client facing role - i.e. customer support or account management
- Passionate about serving clients
- Strong organizational skills; you are able to juggle multiple tasks with varying deadlines and stakeholders without dropping the ball
- Communicate with confidence, professionalism and empathy over the phone and through email
- Remain composed in high stress situations and convey empathy for our customers and their situation
- Meticulous attention to detail - rarely making typos and noticing discrepancies
- Financial services credentials or licensing (CFP, CRPC, or equivalent)
- Prior startup experience
Why Work With Us?
- We have a world-class team from diverse backgrounds, each with a track record of success. We come to work every day knowing we're working on an important problem: helping people save for retirement at a critical time when pensions are going extinct and Social Security isn't enough.
- We believe that all individuals deserve the opportunity for a secure financial future. We want idealistic and talented people to join our team of doers and builders.
- You'll be given autonomy and many responsibilities, all while working with a fun and passionate team of entrepreneurs. Above all, you'll help us solve the #1 financial concern for Americans: not having enough money for retirement.
