Customer Service
Posted on Tuesday, March 7, 2023
If you’re looking for an exciting role where you can hone your analytical ability, business acumen and customer centricity, then look no further, this role is for you.
Unlike typical operational or support roles, this role isn’t just about closing tickets and reviewing claims. You will be the front face of Mamo, where you will have the opportunity to provide delightful support to our customers. You will also be a champion for our customers internally, where you will proactively seek to understand needs, show them how they can experience financial inclusion by using our products and finally sharing this feedback with the team to improve overall customer experience.
The most important skill-sets to excel in this role are attention to detail and excellent communication skills since you’ll be talking directly to customers, who we care deeply about at Mamo. You’ll support Mamo in its growth while working closely with our Customer support, Risk and Finance teams.
If you already have some experience with disputes that would be a plus, but this isn’t required. This will be a great learning opportunity where you’ll work closely with a team of very talented people, so if you’re passionate about FinTech or just want to kick-off your career in a startup, apply and let us know!

What you will do [ Customer Support ]

  • Manage all customer disputes, including investigating and resolving customer complaints and refunds in a timely and effective manner.
  • Review business claims, resolve processing issues, and detect and report suspicious activity to the compliance team.
  • You will interact with customers daily on a variety of channels such as Intercom, phone, email, and social media, and ensure that all customer concerns are being dealt with immediately. Whether it’s a product bug, a payment issue, or just a question for clarification, you would take ownership, and help the customer get the most delightful experience they deserve.
  • Assist customers with problem resolution via support tickets, phone calls and texts.
  • Encourage customers to activate their services once they have come onboard and/or understand any obstacles they need help with.
  • Assist customers with demos on how to use the product.
  • Collect customer feedback and share with the team to help us improve our products and optimize the user experience.

What we’re looking for

  • We need a problem solver who is patient and kind, and someone who thrives on making genuine human connections. We don’t need a script follower!

  • Strong command of the English language, both verbal and written, is a must. Arabic is a bonus.

  • You have a genuinely cheerful nature. Positivity in all situations; no-one likes to hear things framed negatively.
  • Flexibility in addressing shifting or competing priorities.
  • You are a collaborator and a team player and bring high energy to work each day.
  • Resourcefulness - you have a get-things-done attitude.
  • You have an innately investigative and curious nature.
  • You have prior experience and interest in finance / payments.
  • You possess proven ability to use multiple tools (technology) creatively during investigations to reach correct conclusions on customer issues.
