  • Develop and improve upon support processes and workflows to support the growth and scalability of the support team
  • Build impactful internal tools using no-code solutions like Airtable, Retool, Zapier, Notion, and more
  • Collaborate with support leads and the Head of Support to create the best possible customer experience for our users
  • Optimize and automate a high-volume support queue, creating systems to prioritize and route tickets according to business impact
  • Create and maintain the onboarding, training, and education processes for the support team
  • Draw insights from support requests to create external support documentation, macros, automation, and saved replies
  • Identify operational inefficiencies and implement process improvements to improve the speed and quality of support
  • Collect and analyze all support data and utilize that data to measure and improve our customer experience
  • Assist with the design and rollout of new support channels
  • Work with our data team to create internal dashboards to draw insights into the customer support team and processes
  • Help design and scale the support operations team at OpenPhone

About you
