Customer Service Specialist

Part Time
Mid Level

Manufacturing is changing, and we need the best people on the job. 

At Opulo, we’re changing the way folks bring their product to market. Our machines facilitate mid-scale manufacturing, where you make your product at a moderate scale before making the risky and expensive jump to mass production. 

As a Customer Service Specialist, you will help our customers both assemble and operate their Pick-and-Place machines, which place tiny electronic components onto circuit boards. You will also help monitor and keep track of any issues customers are experiencing with the product, so that our engineering team can prioritize what to work on. You’ll dive into our thriving community of builders and users in order to help understand what product improvements are most important.
