Job Overview

The Member Services Representative is responsible for providing excellent customer service to Mountaineers volunteers, members, and guests by assisting with website navigation, membership questions, and program-related inquiries via phone and through our online response system. You’ll also process bookstore sales, assist with membership data updates, and complete other projects as assigned in a member-centric, dynamic work environment.

Qualified candidates must have excellent phone and customer service skills, strong interpersonal skills, and relish in providing excellent customer service. This is an administrative position that requires excellent verbal and written communications skills, strong attention to detail, and a commitment to delighting our community members. Experience working with SalesForce, Plone, and other databases is a plus. Knowledge of The Mountaineers and familiarity with Washington State trails and land managers is ideal as many questions relate to the specific location of an activity.

Here’s how you can help us achieve our mission:

Provide outstanding member, volunteer, and guest support

  • Answer phone calls and respond to or route calls accordingly.
  • Provide members and guests with current information in person, by phone, or by email.
  • Assist members and guests in using The Mountaineers website, registering for courses, and redeeming membership benefits, among many other things.

Complete administrative tasks

  • Process credit card and check payments for dues, course registration, and other purchases.
  • Update data in Salesforce membership database, including, but not limited to, member history, course graduation, and address changes.
  • Process new member packets, gift membership mailings, and holiday membership drive materials.
  • Support Salesforce projects, including data management and cleanup, pulling volunteer reports, and syncing data to our website
  • Act as primary tester for new website development for courses, trips and programs. Support member services in testing for other website development.

Support Sales and Outreach Efforts

  • Sell Mountaineers books and other items in the bookstore.
  • Assist with membership outreach and promotional events, such as the Banff Mountain Film Festival and the BeWild Film & Speaker Series.
  • Work with volunteers, vendors, customers, and employees to meet all the above requirements.
  • Perform other related duties as assigned, in support of the goals of the organization.

Why you’ll love working here:

  • We support a community of volunteers connecting people to the outdoors and each other. Our members have the opportunity to connect with transformative outdoor experiences, and that magic translates to our work culture. Every day is different and offers opportunities to connect in a new way.
  • You’ll join a tenured team invested in your growth and success. You’ll be supported through the initial onboarding and with ongoing on-the-job learning, and will have the opportunity to identify and spend time working on projects that are of the most interest to you.
  • We hire smart, collaborative people who love the outdoors. Your colleagues will be people you love working with to creatively solve problems, and who you’ll want to adventure with on the weekends.

Preferred Skills:

  • Our mission is built on relationships, so you’ll need the ability to communicate effectively at all levels, and to build and maintain strong internal and external relationships.
  • Excellent phone, typing, data-entry, and basic clerical skills.
  • Demonstrated ability to work independently, with good attention to detail and reasonable efficiency. We like it when people take initiative to complete projects and update things in need of fixing.
  • Great collaboration skills, with a willingness and desire to work as part of a team. With your teammates, you’ll brainstorm best solutions and communicate openly about shifting priorities and tasks. We’re here to help each other, and we do our best work when everyone feels empowered and supported.
  • Able to work with people with varying skills and expertise. You’re curious about understanding the needs of others, and cater your response to find a solution that works for them.
  • Passion for the mission of The Mountaineers, and ability to exemplify the organization’s core values throughout all forms of communications.
  • Experience working with volunteers and understanding of nonprofit organizations is helpful.
  • Experience with SalesForce databases, Plone website navigation, and multi-line phone system will make it easier for you to get started.
