Title: Part-Time Customer Service Specialist
Reports to: Operations Manager
Compensation: $12 / hr, starting
Benefits: PTO, Paid Holidays, Annual Bonus
Location: Portland, OR

Toast has an immediate opening for a part-time Customer Service Specialist. This person will be responsible for establishing and maintaining Toast’s reputation as a company dedicated to great customer service.

As the face (and voice) of the company, a friendly, can-do attitude and willingness to engage customers and potential customers is a must, as are excellent communication skills and highly organized work habits. Daily responsibilities include responding to emails, phone calls, live online chat, and occasional walk-ins to answer questions, resolve issues, and facilitate purchasing decisions. Other duties include tracking device requests, logging issues, creating and updating your standardized operating procedures, reporting on these as requested.

This is a part-time position, requiring approximately 25 hours per week, depending on sales volume. The successful candidate will be adaptable, willing and able to scale hours up and down as workload dictates, most notably during the busier seasons, such as the November through January.

We are a small team of like-minded individuals; an easy-going bunch who also appreciates the dedication required to succeed as a small-scale, Portland-based manufacturer of high-quality crafted goods. We are looking for a motivated and organized individual who will gel with our culture and who fits the requirements listed below.

  • Able to maintain an energetic and positive outlook toward customers and co-workers in emails, on the phone, and in person.
  • Thorough and highly organized in managing time, tasks, and communications
  • Self-directed and quick learner, able to jump into the role and begin internalizing processes immediately.
  • Putting your favorite Wood Pun in the subject line of your job application
