Job Description

As a member of the Customer Success team at HigherMe, your drive, empathy, intelligence, problem-solving, and project management skills will constantly be utilized. You’re the type of person that thrives in a fast-paced environment, can’t stand having free time, and can manage your time flawlessly.

Our Customer Support role is the first line of defense for resolving inquiries from both Customers and Applicants, which means you’ll have the opportunity to wear a ton of hats. You’ll also be expected to actively contribute and further the team’s processes and procedures.

**Product Development:**

You’ll utilize your expert knowledge and first-hand experience with our clients to work cross-functionally and ensure that we maintain a solution-based and customer-centric product.

**Team Development:**

You’ll be an actively contributing member of the HigherMe team. You understand that while doing your job, you will uncover potential for growth, development, and learnings. Once identified, you’ll proactively take on new projects and help the overall development of yourself, team, and HigherMe as a whole.
