Are you someone who is…
- warm, friendly, and passionate about making a difference in the lives of other people?
- motivated, organized, and knows how to make things happen?
- savvy online and up to speed with technology and enjoy helping people troubleshoot problems?
If so, you’re in the right place.
We’re looking for a Member Support Coordinator to provide an excellent experience for our members and our community throughout the weekend. The primary focus of this position will be customer service support for members of The Balanced Life community.
You don’t need to be a Pilates or nutrition expert, but you do need to have a passion for supporting people and a knack for problem solving, as our members strive to live healthier, balanced lives through our online Pilates & nutrition programs.
The primary responsibility of this position will be weekend customer service support for members of The Balanced Life community. The Balanced Life is built on positivity, warmth, encouragement, and kindness. So if others would use these words to describe your personality, you’ll be a great fit. We pride ourselves on exceptional, above and beyond service to our community.
This position has high expectations and requires you to juggle multiple responsibilities at the same time, but if you’re the right person for the job, you thrive in a fast-paced, creative, dynamic, work environment, and a high level of responsibility doesn’t scare you, it excites you.
This is a 15-20 hour per week (with potential for growth) and a remote position.
This role requires working 4-6 hours on Saturdays and Sundays as well as 2-3 hours on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays. Additional availability to accommodate for the increase in member support needs will be communicated in advance.
Although we are remote, we love to work together! This role also requires you to attend Team Summits twice a year in Santa Barbara, California.
The Member Support Coordinator is essential to The Balanced Life because this role offers a personal connection to each community member that emails us.
The Balanced Life is committed to inclusion, diversity, awareness, and anti-racism within our team and community. We are individuals who care deeply about social justice and recognize that diverse backgrounds and perspectives are not only valuable, but necessary to fulfill our mission at The Balanced Life. We invite you to join us as we build an organization that promotes a diverse culture and community where people are welcomed, valued, and included.
