Merchant Services can handle virtually all significant methods of payments globally and is capable of authorizing transactions in more than 130 currencies.

What you will be doing?

The Head of Migration Call Center will partner with the product team leading migration strategy and the team responsible for technical migrations. Additional partners include the program delivery team, sales, service, operations and technology. In advance of the migrations, you'll be responsible for building a team of employees who will develop the migration process. In parallel, you'll have to ramp a large, high performing team composed of offshore and onshore employees and contractors. Once on board, these resources will have to be trained on tools and processes to migrate clients, call scripts, client handling, legacy platforms and the end state platform. As the migration kicks off, your team will be responsible for hand holding each client through the migration process. This will include introductory calls, info gathering calls, configuration and setup, migration calls, and post migration follow up calls. Under your leadership, the teams will migrate hundreds of thousands of clients across Europe, Canada and the US from legacy Merchant Services systems to the new payment platforms being developed under Helix and WePay, a Chase Company.
