Customer Onsite Specialist
Baltimore, MD, USA
Posted on Friday, September 15, 2023
Wonolo (Work Now Locally) is disrupting the $140BN temporary staffing industry. Founded in 2014, Wonolo's mission is to help people find consistent work. Through our two-sided tech marketplace, we connect hundreds of businesses in need of front-line workers with 1 million underemployed workers in local markets across the United States, within minutes. Wonolo recently raised $140M in growth funding which will continue to help us empower the in-demand workforce by democratizing access to flexible work, opportunities to learn new skills, a living wage, and comprehensive portable benefits and perks.
As a Customer Onsite Specialist, you will visit different job sites maintained by Wonolo’s customers (commonly a warehouse or production facility) to ensure customers and local workers (Wonoloers) have easy access to our support channels. You’ll be working with both Wonoloers and customers, serving as a product expert of the Wonolo app, a problem-solver, and a human connection. As needed, you will serve as a local recruiting operations agent, helping to acquire, onboard, or assess workers for W2 jobs on the platform. You’ll help Wonoloers and customers navigate routine tasks as well as new challenges. You will be immersed in a fast-paced environment that is constantly in flux. Most importantly, you will have a direct impact on supporting local workers by helping to shape the future of work.
We're looking for someone who is organized, can take initiative, can speak to different stakeholders including job site supervisor and gig economy workers, and has problem-solving skills who can operate in an ambiguous environment. You will serve as the face of Wonolo to various Customers and Wonoloers and will ensure both are having a seamless Wonolo experience.
We have two hourly roles with an anticipated duration of 3 months to start with the potential to extend. One role will be working Monday - Thursday 4PM - 2:30AM and Sunday 8:30PM - 2:30AM. Second role will be working Saturday - Sunday 6AM - 5:30PM.
We welcome qualified candidates located in the Baltimore, MD area.

- Travel to Wonolo customer locations (commonly a warehouse or production facility) and coordinate with customers on issues relating to the check-in / check-out process, time-theft prevention procedures, and other issues relating to Wonoloers' completion of jobs
- Provide real-time feedback on day-to-day operations.

- Keep up to date with point tacking system and work with team members and client.
- Help the client avoid co-employment risks by handling difficult situations, including managing workers in real time (late arrivals, early departures, providing live coaching, terminating workers, collecting badges, and de-escalating potential situations that may arise) and offering representation.
Who you are:
- 2+ years of experience in an applicable role such as staffing, operations, customer service, or sales.
- Comfortable working in an industrial environment with communication skills to engage various stakeholders with many types of personalities and backgrounds, including warehouse managers, individuals not familiar with Wonolo, and the experienced Wonoloer community.
- Reliable, responsive and able to work under minimal supervision - you’ll be remote & collaborating with other Wonolo team members virtually.
- Experience identifying growth opportunities and self-driven to complete tasks and to proactively solve issues.
- A positive self-starter and eager to learn - you’re willing to own results, try new things, are open to feedback and not afraid to ask questions.
- Comfortable with tech platforms - e.g. Google for Business tools (Gmail, Calendar, Docs, and Sheets) and Slack.
- This role will require travel to and from customer facilities, and will therefore require a reliable form of transportation.
