Senior Customer Operations Lead

Here at Clerky, we build software to make legal paperwork easier for businesses and their attorneys. We're profitable and growing sustainably. We're the most popular way for high-growth technology startups to form, and are also used by tons of top tier startups and investors for fundraising.

As a customer operations associate at Clerky, you will be the face of the company to thousands of startup founders, investors, and attorneys. These customers use Clerky to get critical legal paperwork done, often on a tight timeline. Our success is based on word-of-mouth, so we have a strong culture of providing world-class service (ask us about our satisfaction ratings). We are rabidly customer-centric. Both our founders have substantial work experience in customer operations, and consider it integral to driving revenue and growth, rather than a cost-center.

Helping our customers is unusually challenging due to the nuanced and specialized nature of their questions. The level of craftsmanship that goes into writing responses to our customers can be intense. We're looking for someone who thinks critically about their writing and is always looking for ways to improve. Along the way, you'll also pick up a ton of knowledge about startups and startup law. If you love learning and constantly challenging yourself, this position is for you.

We're looking for someone who genuinely loves helping others and is dedicated to a career in customer operations. This position has tremendous opportunity for growth and advancement within customer operations, but is not a good fit as a stepping stone to other departments.
