Senior Services Representative

Roam Mobility

Started in IT and service support for clients using tools like Magento and Zendesk for services, and mobile middleware for technical troubleshooting. As the company grew and evolved, I took on more responsibilities, eventually being a team lead and integral part of support for a separate branch of the company - ReadySIM. This included social media management using Hootsuite, logistics handling, and helping train  new staff in technical support for use with our mobile  service product.  I also had to report website errors/issues and quickly learned the importance of a clean user interface for customer satisfaction.
