About the right team member:

You understand and can explain complex financial services and 401(k) principals in an easy to understand way to customers. You excel at helping people making better financial decisions and welcome the opportunity to change the way companies help their employees save for retirement.

You love exceeding client expectations, have strong attention to detail, and know what it means to champion a brand. You are the voice of the company for clients, and relish providing them with that “wow” moment in an area where they haven’t previously been delighted.

This role is on the Business Success team within Betterment for Business, Betterment’s 401(k) product.

At Betterment you will get to:

  • Provide ongoing 401(k) support for plan sponsors
  • Be the internal voice of the 401(k) client to offer insights to Product, Marketing, and Engineering teams to help build a better product
  • Deliver above-and-beyond client service
  • Approximately 80% client-facing/20% project-based work

You will be effective if you have:

  • A minimum of 2 years financial services or technology work experience
  • 401(k) experience - ideal candidate has retirement industry designation (e.g. DC-1)
  • Strong desire to work in a startup environment
  • Excellent communication skills, both written and verbal
  • Comfort with ambiguity
  • Ability to adapt, be creative, and learn
  • Scrappy, “can-do” attitude
