  • Lead and inspire the Customer Happiness Team and the strategy around it (goals, what success looks like, key milestones, resources needed, etc.), including weekly and monthly 1x1s (all documented), weekly team meetings, SOPs, and more

  • Set up KPIs for the team and report on them monthly

  • Send weekly Customer Happiness email updates to the company

  • Collaborate with our Customer Happiness Training Manager to set up recruiting processes and training to improve our ability to recruit the right people and get them up and running more and more quickly over time.
