Full time Customer Service

Job Description

Hi, I'm Francey, Manager of Customer Success (we call it Member Support) at Moves. I am looking for a Customer Support Associate to join our team and help us work with our members through our four main principles: Compassion, Transparency & Honesty, and Selflessness. We’re a 35-person team based in Toronto and growing. This role is fully remote and we welcome applicants from all over Canada.

Here’s the TL;DR on Moves

We believe that work is changing from one-to-one relationships between employees and employers to a “one-to-many”. Where individuals earn income and build experience across multiple units of work, projects, tasks or gigs from various companies, collectives, apps or marketplaces. This transition challenges many of the status quo systems, processes and regulations that have been built around employment and employers which is causing immense friction and gaps in certain parts of the economy undergoing this shift. Today, this transition is rapidly underway in retail and transportation through the rise of ‘gig apps’ like Uber, Doordash, Grab and Amazon Flex. Millions of independent contractors in the U.S earning income from these apps exist on the edge of traditional financial services, and operate independently without the benefits provided by collective and group representation and services. 

Moves’ mission is to improve the collective financial health of independent workers by providing products designed for the way they work and by bringing them together on a common platform to voice, engage and create better outcomes for all. By joining Moves you’re not just joining a company, you’re building a movement. 

All process-flows and tools are in an infant stage of growth and there will be opportunities for you to provide suggestions to optimize the processes. You will also have the opportunity to work with an amazing team that supports one another and encourages each other to grow and learn.
