Customer Experience Manager

Austin, TX

 

We’re seeking a Customer Experience Manager to provide a simpler, more streamlined experience of buying and selling homes.

 

Our offering

We give homeowners the freedom to buy the home they want before selling their current one. Customers tell us about their home and financial situation, and then we provide them with funds to confidently secure their next home with a competitive all-cash offer. This saves them stress from having to list their house without knowing where they’re going next, and makes the process of buying and selling a home as predictable and easy as it should be.  

 

About us

Homeward was started in 2018 by Tim Heyl, a 10-year industry veteran and owner of one of the fastest growing agent teams in the U.S. We’re passionate about our mission to recenter real estate transactions around the customer and make the entire experience more convenient and certain. We’ve attracted a strong early customer base in Texas, Colorado, and Georgia, and are recruiting a core team to help us deliver our unique solution, and continue evolving our business beyond this initial foothold offering.

Homeward is backed by LiveOak, the largest venture capital group in Texas, and raised $3.8 million in early 2019 from additional real estate tech founders and investors such as ApartmentList, OpCity, Opendoor, Yodle, and The Guild.

  • Manage all customer communication through phone, email, and text, providing a friendly, helpful experience and fast, dependable responses

  • Hold an active TX real estate license (or get licensed within your first three months)
  • Coordinate closely with our Transaction Coordinators to ensure all critical steps of the Transaction process are managed perfectly for a seamless customer experience
  • Provide detailed, insightful feedback to our product and marketing teams on the customer experience with Homeward ensuring we keep the customer at the center of our solutions
  • Be comfortable working in the ambiguity and shifting priorities that come with an early stage startup

 

What you’ll bring: 

  • An intrinsic desire to serve customers and provide a delightful, seamless experience
  • A high EQ and deep rooted sense of empathy
  • Exceptional written and verbal communication skills 
  • An outcomes focused mentality and drive
  • Exceptional organizational skills
  • Enthusiasm about helping beyond the bounds of your day to day role
  • 2+ years sales, customer success, or Real Estate experience
  • Licensed TX or GA Real Estate agent (or have practiced in the last 2 years)

What we will offer you:

  • A collaborative, efficient, and smart team to work with
  • A beautiful workspace with the high quality tools you need to get the job done well

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?
