99designs is a people first business inside and out.  It’s reflected in the values we hold for our people, our customers and designers.  We want each and every person to be absolutely delighted by their experience.  And that’s where you come in...

A little bit about this opportunity

This role is as much about inspiring people as it is about introducing meaningful CX and metrics.  You will join a newly formed support operations team, a shift that will enable streamlined processes globally for greater effectiveness. Think, processes, software, tools, data, metrics, standard operating procedures, project management and product team connection.

Just how will this be done? With a lot of authenticity, consultation and collaboration! You’ll partner with each region, taking time to understand their current practices, and with the Head of Community Support define global processes to bring this together to form a new support operations strategy and one global vision of customer support excellence. 


A little bit about you

You’ll take a human centred design approach to operations and have experience operating as a change agent, championing new processes and inspiring people to come along the journey with you.

To you, data is your friend! And you love the stories data can tell you through analysis and critical thinking and you can analyse and improve customer experiences using long term processes and solutions with a commercial mindset.
