    • Create and test new ideas to improve Enrollment success [call campaigns, new emails, etc]
    • Help determine workflow and test processes for new products (ie Education or Cash goal) and Partners (onboarding)
    • If properly licensed, Client Operations Associate will assist in the daily trading of the accounts
    • Assist in scoping partner integrations and assist in implementing partner client service requirements
    • Train new employees on existing software systems and company procedures
    • Troubleshoot User Interface issues including technical issues, bugs, and user error and confidently work through issues with clients and engineering team.

The rewards? With the help of our engineers, we’re translating manual work into automated, simplified, streamlined processes to build a new kind of financial advisor. We’re providing a service to people (especially our peers) who could never access wealth management before, and at a great price. We’re a fun team at a fast-growing company!
