About Zipongo

Zipongo is a digital nutrition platform that takes the guesswork out of healthy eating with personalized meal recommendations based on biometrics and food preferences. We work with employers, health plans and wellness companies to reduce chronic disease and improve the health of their employees and members. Our solution delivers real-time support for all the places a person makes food decisions – at home, at work, at the grocery story, and at restaurants. Pointing users to the healthiest recipe and menu choices reduces the likelihood of making poor food choices based on convenience, cost and other factors.

We're on a mission to reduce chronic disease by making it easy to eat well. Are you ready to join our team and make a difference?

About You

We are looking for a talented Support Representative, driven by the pride and satisfaction of taking care of our end users.

You enjoy communicating clearly, setting expectations and collaborating with internal teams to deliver results.

You love a challenge and thrive on opportunities to innovate collaboratively. You want to be part of a fast-moving startup environment. You have a personal interest in health and wellness and can get behind Zipongo's mission.

You are located on the East Coast or in the Midwest US, and are comfortable communicating with end users. You demonstrate great empathy in your communications, and are driven by a desire to ensure each interaction is a positive experience for the end user.

What we're looking for:
