Currently Available Positions

Onboarding Representative

The Role

This role encompasses a combination of account management, consulting, customer and technical support, and project management. It’s not required that you be technical, but it definitely helps.

What We're Looking For

The On-boarding Representative helps customers get up and running. New SilkStart customers need help navigating the setup options, integrating their new member tools with an existing website, or building a whole new site and launching to members.

What You'll be Doing
  • Through a combination of phone, email, and screen sharing, you will onboard and train new customers, and help them become proficient in using our software. A typical onboard takes 6-8 weeks to complete and you will manage multiple onboards concurrently.
  • Liaising between sales and development to ensure a smooth onboarding process.
  • Leading customer webinars to demonstrate product features and answer questions.
  • Project management – there are lots of moving parts to manage with website development, application configuration and data import, plus training the clients on how to use our software.
  • Continually helping look for ways to improve the onboarding and overall client experience.
Must Haves
  • Customer Obsession. You’re gifted at solving customer issues and making them feel important. You have a personality coupled with strong communication skills, both verbal and written.
  • Great Attitude. You are willing to roll up your sleeves and do what needs to be done. This isn’t a ‘that’s not my job’ or ‘I don’t know how to do that’ environment. Onboarding involves a lot of different tasks, and requires you to be creative, think on your feet, and find solutions to best meet client needs.
  • Lots of Hustle. You like a fast paced, results oriented environment.
  • Self-Directed. You can independently manage your time efficiently and effectively.
  • Gets Things Done. Onboarding is about being organized and keeping things moving forward. You will have competing priorities, but you’re great at just getting stuff done.
Bonus Skills
  • Technical Aptitude. Ideally you have some experience working with customers in a technical environment and/or are comfortable with a broad range of technologies. Especially helpful is content management system (CMS) experience (eg. WordPress, Squarespace, Wix), as is experience building or modifying websites through a working knowledge of  HTML, CSS and Javascript.
