Rune Keeper (Billing & Collection Specialist)

Location: Fully Remote     |     Type: Part-Time to Full-Time

Do people thank you for making a tough subject easy?  When you say you want to talk about “money,” do people actually stick around and listen instead of fleeing to the hills?  Are you able to broach sensitive, emotional subjects with poise and a cool demeanor?  Are you able to succinctly explain things to people who might need more information?  Do you know how to make something seen as difficult (collecting money) into something exciting?  Do you wake up every morning motivated to make the world (and where you work) a better place?  Do you want to work with an awesome and fun team?  If so, have we got an opportunity for you!

We are looking for a rune keeper to help keep the ledger spotless as we expand and grow.  We are looking for someone who can represent the WD team, embracing our culture of fun and entrepreneurship empathy!  You need to have persistent curiosity and a willingness to have continuous communication with our amazing clients and clients to be.

 

If the following description applies to you, please apply!:

The Rune Keeper is informed and respectful of billing and collection practices within the legal industry.
You see invoicing and following up on billing as continuing to provide value to our clients.  You communicate with clients via phone and email to answer any billing questions, resolve billing concerns, and, when needed, establish payment plans.  You are able to manage and effectively reduce accounts receivable.  You can manage incoming payments in accordance with procedures.  You are able to assist with chargeback resolutions (in the rare event they happen).  You enjoy attending staff meetings.  You monitor, track, and report on timekeepers’ hours (despite us not being a law firm that does hourly billing).

You are able to prepare, review, and revise prebills to make sure they are accurate and written to convey thought, progress, and value to the client before submitting for final review.  You are able to prepare and send approved invoices to clients within billing cycles.  You can manage the suspend and withdraw process on client matters in accordance with collections procedures.  You are able to notify the team when work on a client’s matter needs to be suspended due to late payments.

A successful candidate embraces metrics, transparency, and accountability.  Excellent interpersonal and communication skills are an absolute must both in person, by phone, through Zoom, and via email. You need to be a lifelong learner with a proven track record of self-improvement to keep your billing and collections skills sharp!
