Licensed Customer Experience Associate at Betterment
New York City, NY, US
About the right team member

You love interacting with people, fixing things, and are a master at the art of the analogy. You understand what it means to be a champion of a brand. You are the voice of the company for customers, and relish providing them with that “wow” moment. You understand what it is like to be a customer, and appreciate going above and beyond the call of duty to delight people and solve their problems.

You are interested in applying your financial knowledge to the world of customer experience, including engaging with customers and financial advisors on a daily basis. Learning about a client's financial situation interests you, as well as helping people to meet their goals. You are seeking a role that focuses on delivering sound advice, not sales, and one that puts the customer at the center of every interaction and decision. Selling products is for other people, educating and teaching is for you.

You are a very strong communicator, both written and verbal, with an eye for detail, and you demonstrate quick thinking and creative problem solving. You are interested in helping to improve our product, process and customer experience. No project or request is too small for you to conquer on your own or with your team.
