Job Description

Civitech is a public benefit corporation dedicated to creating a fairer and more equitable democracy by building the tools and infrastructure needed to increase civic participation, empower Democratic candidates to win, and support the success of progressive causes. Since its founding in 2019, over 400 partners -- a range of nonprofit organizations, national political committees, and individual campaigns -- have utilized Civitech’s tools to reach tens of millions of voters to help create a more equitable and progressive democracy.

The Client Success Support Specialist is the contact support person responsible for fielding questions or concerns from voters who receive election-related mail from Civitech and our clients. Your main responsibilities will include responding to incoming calls, addressing voter issues, and providing accurate information on voting-related resources.

Additionally, you will maintain detailed records of interactions, process voter requests, and escalate complex issues to leadership for further assistance.

The ideal candidate should possess efficient verbal and written communication skills, a friendly and patient demeanor, and the ability to thrive in a fast-paced environment. Prior experience in a call center or customer service role is preferred but not mandatory. Join our team and embark on a rewarding career where you can make a difference in our democracy every day!

It is important that our team reflects the diversity of the organizations we seek to serve. We strongly encourage women, people of color, people who identify as LGBTQ, and others otherwise underrepresented in the technology sector to apply.
