Got Customer Service Experience? LawnStarter Is Hiring an Assistant Manager

How mulch do you want to be a part of a cutting-edge business?

LawnStarter is growing its staff and hiring a full-time assistant manager for its customer support team. 

In this role, you’ll coach your team of 10 to 15 agents to be a cut above the rest when it comes to the customer experience.

The job is a remote position available to residents of Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas or Virginia. But the company’s home turf is in Austin, Texas, so you’ll need to cut a path to the office for initial training and then once a quarter — the company will cover travel and lodging.
