Our goal is to ‘Run Texas’ by winning customers one Favor at a time. Overseeing the overall Favor experience, our Support team is there to ensure our customers and runners receive the highest levels of service on each favor. But when things don’t go according to plan, we step in and ensure our Customers, Runners and Merchants receive a personalized, fast and easy path to resolution across multiple channels (phone, SMS, email, social). As part of the Favor Support Organization, our front-line Support teams are the first entrusted to take customer, runner, and merchant inquiries. Support Leads are there to manage the day-to-day operations of the team, focusing on driving efficiency and providing the best customer service through coaching and development of our Support Specialist. Our Support Leads are people and data driven, experience focused, operationally savvy, and innovative on how we scale support. They believe every conversation is an opportunity to build our Favor Community.

  • Perform qualitative audits of Support interactions. 
  • Run efficient and effective day to day operations. 
  • Evaluate, inform and innovate on team workflows, processes and procedures to drive continuous improvement. 
  • Work beside your team on a weekly basis to continue driving excellence and understanding in how we can best service our Texas community.

  • Working knowledge of contact center management tools, processes, procedures, performance metrics, and associated improvement levers. 
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills.

Ideal Candidate:

  • Ability to operate with integrity, courage, and servant leadership. 
  • Passionate about people management and developing team members that are empowered to make meaningful connections with a diverse workforce & customer base. 
  • A champion for mental and psychological wellbeing and are a steward of diversity and inclusion on your teams. 
  • A model for poise and emotional intelligence in navigating customer/specialist de-escalation and conflict resolution. 
  • Willing to roll up your sleeves and work beside your team in the details. 
  • Graceful, effective and able to keep your team focused and energized in a high ambiguity, ever-changing environment.

An Insider's view of Favor

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Favor truly talks the talk and walks the walk when it comes to prioritizing team members’ personal lives, mental health, and work-life balance. Especially with all of the challenges that last year brought, Favor created even more opportunities for team members to relax, recharge, and focus on mental health and overall wellness.

Even after all these years, it’s amazing to know that career growth is really not just a bullet point at Favor, but an actual focus where steps for professional and personal development are provided from day one. I’ve only seen Favor’s dedication to career growth grow since the day I joined the team.
