Customer Support Lead
Customer Experience | Remote, USA | Full Time | From $33.00 to $36.48 per hour
On average, U.S. students are with substitute teachers for 5% of the typical school year. That means our students have substitute teachers for more than six months of their K-12 school career. The problem? We’re suffering from a national shortage of substitute teachers. Swing Education is focused on tackling the substitute teacher shortage. Our online platform makes it easy for great schools and quality subs to find each other. We help schools access more subs and offload tedious work associated with managing a pool of substitute teachers (recruiting, screening, payroll, etc.). Our network provides subs with a wider range of work opportunities to gain experience and build their professional network.
After more than seven years in operation we are working with over 4000 schools in 7 states and have filled over 300k teacher absence days. We’re a post-series B company with about 50 employees currently, and our lead investors include GV (aka Google Ventures), Owl Ventures, and Social Capital. We also have a strong commitment to diversity, and our employees are 60% people of color (30% underrepresented minorities) and over 50% female. Our board of directors is also 75% female and 75% people of color.
We’re a diverse and inclusive team. We find it easy to get up in the morning and work for teachers, schools, and students.
Swing’s Customer Experience (CX) team seeks to empower our users through easy self-service and provide guidance and expertise when our schools and subs need us. As a Live Customer Support Team Lead, you’ll be responsible for providing world-class customer support, identifying customer pain points, escalating inefficiencies you identify in our support processes, and finding scalable solutions. You will oversee our team of support agents to ensure the quality and world class service standards are being met.
With minimal guidance, you will be able to handle the more complex ticketing issues, such as bugs, missing payments, payment corrections, and escalations. You are highly organized, empathetic, a thoughtful communicator, and energized by helping our school partners and substitute teachers get the most they can out of their Swing experience.
This is a full-time remote position that will be covering a Pacific Standard time zone.
