  • Explore your depth and own your growth - Take charge of your own experiences; have ad-hoc involvement and support in wider initiatives across varying teams

  • Enable quick decision-making to adapt to various situations and incorporate into capacity planning discussions
  • Support execution of business contingency plans
  • Publish relevant operational reports to advise action planning and strategy
  • Collaborate with stakeholders to achieve desired service level outcomes

  • At a minimum, intermediate level capability in Excel/Google sheets
  • Familiarity with extracting operational insights from large and complex data sets to ultimately drive business decisions
  • Passion for all things data, especially to drive decisions and results

  • A drive for communication and partnership to ensure goals are met, able to confidently give directions while keeping several plates spinning at the same time
  • An outstanding record of meeting and exceeding targets
  • Tested ability to navigate ambiguity and complexity, in tandem with the flexibility to respond quickly to changes in day-to-day operations
  • Grace and patience under fire; able to present in front of large groups, navigate through ambiguity; and demonstrate composure in stressful situations

What makes you stand out

  • Experience in deep-diving into operations management, root cause analysis, strategic planning, and project management
  • Solid understanding of end-to-end Workforce Management and the ability to operationalize large, real-world data sets
  • Specific experience in Customer Service operations
  • In-depth experience with WFM and/or Business Intelligence tools
