Customer Support Manager

Kansas City, MO
Customer Support
Full-time
About the Position:
As a Customer Support Manager you will lead, motivate, coach and drive the CS team towards providing best in class support for our members and modeling best practices. Initially, you will be working with 7-10 highly motivated Customer Support Agents at ChowNow HQ and will be responsible for helping them drive results and achieve a higher level of mastery of the Customer Support roles. 

Your day will often find you mentoring a talented team of Customer Support Representatives to ensure that they are set up for success to do their best work, providing “ground control” support to assist in client issues, and assisting in developing high level strategies with the Director to ensure the Customer Support team is a well-oiled machine. 

About the Team: 
ChowNow is unique among tech startups in the restaurant space. We power branded online ordering systems for independent restaurants across North America – via websites, Facebook, Google, and through branded iOS and Android apps – and we do it all for a reasonable monthly fee regardless of order volume. We operate this way because of our belief in being fair, sustainable, and equitable with our restaurant partners. And the same goes for our workplace. 

Diversity, teamwork, and mutual respect are among our core company values. And we pride ourselves on giving our teams plenty of opportunities to make their mark. To date we’ve created over 14,000 apps for our restaurant partners – something that’s never been done before in our category. And as we expand to new markets, further spreading the word about the ChowNow difference, those opportunities to create, build, and grow will only increase. If this sounds like the kind of workplace, and the kind of mission, that appeals to you, we’d love to talk.
