  • Handle staffing responsibilities by creating and maintaining a daily schedule that balances the needs of the business and our teammates

  • Assist in recruiting and development of Support team as a whole

  • Help synthesize and deliver communication between morning, day and night shifts

  • Experience leading highly collaborative customer service or account management teams working directly with customers or clients

  • Have an interest and the desire to research, offer up, and implement new approaches on improving team and merchant experiences

  • Be someone who is highly analytical and can work comfortably on data analysis in Excel, often pulling and manipulating raw data from various enterprise-level systems

  • Be a self-starter, self-learner, and possess incredible resourcefulness

  • Be comfortable dealing with ambiguity and possess the intellectual horsepower to make decisions on the fly
