Director Customer Care Operations - AMPAC
Boston, Santa Barbara, Seattle
Care’s mission is to keep every home filled with music. Our objective is to accelerate to seamless 24/7 Care Experiences by investing in Digital Care channels (Social, Community and Content). In order to execute on our objective, we need to hire a Director for Ampac to oversee and lead the transformation from a traditional call center environment to a multi-skilled omni-channel environment enabling 24/7 Care for Sonos owners.
From a customer perspective, you will be responsible for all care experiences in the Ampac region. From a team perspective, you will lead a team of location managers in Santa Barbara and Boston and drive cross functional collaboration with all Care teams in Ampac. From an organization perspective, you will connect and partner closely with all functions outside of Care (Marketing, Finance, Sales etc.) within the Ampac region to understand and deliver the desired customer experience, and represent this experience within Sonos.
Our band is large. And while there’s plenty of room for all kinds of personalities and skill sets to succeed, there are certain qualities that will help you thrive here.
Like a never-accept-less work ethic. An exceptionally low ego-to-talent ratio (none of the first, tons of the latter). A relentless craving to push past your limits and try new things. The smarts and the humble confidence to take on big challenges, make mistakes fast and early, embrace tough feedback, then recover quickly with fresh, startlingly perfect solutions. A fearless willingness to defend great work. And a tendency to totally geek out on music.
If this sounds like you, read on and let’s connect soon.
You will be the Care leader for Ampac, leading a team of Location and regional Managers (Australia and new regions) with multi-skilled personnel (team members interacting with customers on phone, text/email and social channels) to deliver a high quality of support across all channels to our customers.
Your biggest challenge is leading change and driving transformation whilst maintaining and improving the high experience standards of Sonos Care. You are expected to develop and execute strategic direction and manage the overall performance of the Ampac region. Close collaboration is needed with the Ampac outsourced partner, all Care teams and internal stakeholders to understand and address business needs. Lead different projects (from operational to strategic challenges) to further develop Care. Analyzing, reporting and improving all relevant customer experience data within the region and translate them into actionable insights. Lead by example according to the Sonos values and be an advocate for the Sonos culture cross-functionally.
You will also take seat in the Ampac cross-functional Leadership Team consisting of the leaders of all regional functions (HR, Operations, Finance, Marketing, Sales). You will not only be the leader of Care, but a business leader who functions actively in the leadership team of the Ampac Go-To-Market GTM organization.
