Starship Crew members understand that it takes a whole team to win. Even when a clear answer isn’t evident, you seek out the information necessary, and deliver the very best service to our members.

The Starship Crew loves working together—rolling up their sleeves and adapting to ever-changing environments. This is a career opportunity—not just a job to show up to.

As a Customer Services Specialist, you’re on the frontline with our members—assisting them with personalized benefits or financial advice, guidance on how to make the most of their Starship account, navigation of our technology, and course, just taking on that role of ‘super smart friend’ who provides support along their journey to financial wellness.

Starship Customer Services always have an eye on what it means to deliver exceptional customer service; you interact with our members through a variety of channels, including but not limited to: live chat, email, and telephone. As our first responder, you see and hear directly from customers regarding what they want, what they wish we did, and of course, those pesky bugs or issues we know will crop up. You’re also able to translate the voice of this customer into new product features, enhancements, processes, or policies that enhance customer delight and happiness.

Because we are a startup, after all, your role and responsibilities will evolve over time and you will be directly involved in their evolution. You will get to try on multiple hats, experiment, and have creative influence in how our customer-centric support services develop.
