We’re Eargo and we’re on a mission to disrupt, innovate, and reimage the hearing industry. If you believe fun at work is non-negotiable and want to experience the joy of being a part of helping someone hear life to the fullest again— expect tears of joy— then this is the place for you! Our passionate, fast-paced, energetic team is driven by the belief that people shouldn’t feel like they need a hearing aid—they should want one. So, if working with some of the coolest, most talented folks around and making an impact every single day sounds like a dream gig, then we want to hear from you!
As a Personal Hearing Assistant (PHA) you will use active listening skills and a consultative sales approach to quickly build rapport, address the client’s needs and concerns, discuss the Eargo hearing advantage, and transfer them to an experienced Personal Hearing Guide to explain the Eargo buying process in greater detail.

Consider yourself an expert qualifier responding to an interested client to ensure they can be helped by the Eargo solution.
