  • Work cross-functionally with teams from across the company to handle legal, privacy, trust & safety, and highly technical escalations, making sure they are resolved in a timely manner 
  • Track trends in customer inquiries, comments, and complaints, and recommend improvements based on that feedback
  • Stay up-to-date with trends, best practices, new products and capabilities for customer support, success, and experience, and use this knowledge to make sure our customer experience is best in class

  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • An up-to-date portfolio with examples of your writing and communication (blog posts or talks you’ve given, internal training documents, user-facing documentation, project plans, etc)

You should be...

  • Resilient, and able to stay level-headed in a crisis situation 
  • Highly collaborative. Able to build trust & strong relationships at all levels, influence without formal authority and push back when appropriate.
