Virtual Receptionist Job Opportunity

Functional Nutriments, a small and fast-growing nutraceutical firm is looking to hire the perfect telephone receptionist with strong customer service and computer skills. We have a perfect rating with the Better Business Bureau  and we want to maintain it.

This is an ideal position for the right person. Thanks to our VOIP telephone and web-based CRM systems, this work is based in your home office, not at our headquarters. It is a virtual position which means that you must have a quiet home office with a dependable, fast Internet connection and a computer that is less than 2 years old. The working hours are Monday-Friday from 9AM-6PM Eastern.

Read on, especially if you are a dog lover.  Why a dog lover?  Our company is a bio-medical company that is focused on the health of dogs.  As a team member, your love of dogs will be key in your communication with our customers and medical professionals who call our offices daily.

As a virtual receptionist, you will be the first voice people hear when they call us. You will be a professional, courteous ambassador for our company and our various brands. Through our VOIP phone system, you will receive inbound calls, assist customers with orders, fulfill those orders using our web-based systems, and answer general questions. As appropriate, you will take messages for senior staff members and route calls accordingly.  You will utilize our call center computer technology to input, track and report customer’s issues. In addition, you will be trained and expected to assist in a number of other administrative functions.

We use state-of-the-art web-based systems including Ring Central, Infusionsoft, Zendesk, Quickbooks and Basecamp. You do not need to already be familiar with those systems, but you should be comfortable in that environment. Again, you don’t need to be a computer geek because we will train you, but you should be very comfortable in front of a computer using today’s latest technology. (This is why a fast computer with a speedy Internet connection in a quiet environment is so important.)

TBD based upon previous experience and hours worked


Minimum 1 year of recent customer service or call center experience required. High level of PC knowledge including familiarity with a newer Mac or Windows 7 or above environment. Outstanding multi-tasking abilities. Excellent interpersonal, organizational and communication skills (both verbal and written) required.
