In addition, you will contribute towards efforts to implement operational efficiencies and reductions in support tickets and will work with our product teams as a primary customer to define improvements to our operational tools. This is a cross functionals role that will require close partnering with internal stakeholders and teams to identify points of friction, deep diving operational problem areas, resolving escalations, and gathering data to support projects and product launches. We are a close-knit organization where everyone is working toward a common goal and where all contributions matter.

  • Define and build out resource requirements for the Payment Ops function
  • Support our BPO partner with training material while running train-the-trainer sessions
  • Ongoing liaison with sponsor banks to understand their operational needs and communicating feedback with Synctera product managers
  • Build dashboards and reporting and manage operations towards continuous improvement against key SLAs.
  • Be an internal and external champion of Synctera’s values and the team’s goals

Who you are

  • You don’t shy away from complex problems and are enthusiastic about establishing best practices across the Ops organization
  • A self-starter with a strong sense of urgency who thrives in ambiguity
  • You have a customer-oriented approach, with a pragmatic personality
  • Comfort working with data, SQL skills a plus
