Part Time Customer Connection Description
We are looking for a part time customer connection team member to help support and nurture our community members. This person will not only answer customer service tickets, but bring in a WOW factor and constantly look at how to up level CS, our systems and processes, and efficiency. We want every customer to feel seen, heard, and valued. Through personal connection and attention to detail, we are aiming to create world class customer service.
We have a global community, so this person must feel comfortable navigating conversations with a diverse group of people and be aware of the diverse perspectives brought to each ticket. Behind each ticket is a person with different experiences and perspectives from the previous person.
We will provide intensive training on our company approach, but candidates must feel comfortable with learning new software programs and have some familiarity with early childhood education, specifically play based learning.
To ensure the experience is personal and built around connections, we strive to respond to tickets within 24 hours of receiving the ticket. Because of this goal, this position is centered around weekend hours in the morning and the evening.

You will fit in great if you:
-Have passion and care for Early Childhood Education/Wonder Based Teaching
-Strive to be a WOW with everything and everyone
-Fresh and innovative
- Are passionate and inspired
-Are a solution seeker. We have protocols for trying to answer your own questions first. We love people taking initiative in learning and offering solutions.
