  • Serve as the front line, speaking with driver-partners face-to-face, in Mandarin and in English, to help improve their first experience with Via or manage their accounts.
  • Work closely with our senior team on operations, marketing, and analysis.
  • Create and develop relationships with new driver-partners and provide top-notch support.
  • Become an expert on our services and spread the love of Via everywhere.

  • Previous work experience in a customer service role required
  • Bilingual in Mandarin and English
  • Independent self-starter who is comfortable taking on a variety of projects at once
  • Outgoing and sociable; cool under pressure
  • Strong attention to detail
  • A savvy, tactful, and graceful communicator – you intuitively find the right tone in every situation

Preferred qualifications:

  • Computer and technical skills, including experience with Microsoft Office and the Google Suite
  • Previous experience with CRM tools like Salesforce
  • Call center experience 

Commitment: This is a full-time (40 hours per week), ongoing contract position staffed via HireArt and based in Long Island City, NY. This role will be remote until September 2021, then you will be required to work on-site in Long Island City.
