Job Description

Propel is a fast paced, VC backed company. We help companies, big and small, get their products to market quicker than ever before, with an intuitive and collaborative interface completely built on the Salesforce Lightning platform.

    • Work with CS Ops Manager to compile and present reports on support team performances to leadership team
    • Implement processes to improve teams efficiency, SLAs and survey scores
    • Serve as the voice of the customer and act as a liaison between customer and Propel stakeholders
    • Be a subject matter expert on the Propel and Salesforce platform
