The Role

We are seeking a passionate leader who is committed to truly exceptional customer service while leading a quickly growing team (currently of 6 staff). Since day 1, we have viewed customer service as a highly strategic part of Rocky Talkie that is integral to our brand and sets us apart in our industry. We have established a reputation for exceeding expectations in customer interactions with our level of care and generosity. This role will be critical in maintaining what we have built and leading our efforts to take it to the next level both domestically and in new international markets in the coming years.

A good fit for this role may be someone who currently manages a customer service department, but is dissatisfied with the level of resources their company is willing to commit to providing an innovative, compassionate experience for customers. The ideal candidate will have experience with eCommerce platforms like Shopify, and a CX platform such as Freshdesk, Zendesk, or Kustomer. Demonstrated ability to manage and inspire both full-time and part-time employees is critical. Like all members of our team, this role will require becoming an expert in our radios in order to effectively oversee our team of CX Specialists who help educate our customers and diagnose any technical issues that arise. Opportunity for growth is abundant and excellence is recognized and rewarded.

Our Company

Rocky Talkie launched in late 2019 with its flagship Mountain Radio made for climbers and skiers to communicate in the backcountry. Since then, we have grown to be well known in the adventure sports industry, with two best in class radios and a rapidly growing base of happy customers (see product reviews here, and here). We have a passionate and highly motivated team of 18 who are stoked to continue changing the radio industry for the better. We currently sell in the USA and Canada and have additional international expansion plans in the works.

Our team is motivated every day knowing that better communication in the backcountry saves lives. As part of this mission, we donate $2 per radio to search and rescue teams around the country. Learn more about our company here.
