About the role

Chime is building a world-class member experience organization, and we believe member support should be built around 3 guiding principles:

  1. Frictionless product: Use member insights to mitigate member issues with a simple, transparent product
  2. Self-service: Provide self-service and automated capabilities to help members solve their own problems; create community for members to support each other
  3. Excellent support: When members do have to contact us, provide them with excellent service. This role will focus on scaling IVR (Interactive Voice Response) experience within our Channel Strategy.

As a Senior Program Manager for our IVR, you will be responsible for defining our IVR strategy and roadmap, and program managing its execution.
