Customer Support Manager

Customer Support Manager

We are looking for a Customer Support Manager to join our team in Stockholm or Gothenburg. In this role you will be reporting to the VP Client Operations. 

What you will do 

As a Customer Support Manager, you play a key role in scaling our company to serve the world's SMBs with digital products, software and services.

  • Customer Support – build scalable processes for delivering and supporting 80+ products and services from our brands to our customers. Iterate quickly on new processes to increase customer satisfaction and drive down cost. 
  • Team management and scaling – grow and develop a cross market/language team, including hiring and training, to the highest level. Invest time in the infrastructure and scale and automate the efforts of the support organization.
  • Pick the right tools – Using the best and most efficient tools are key to serving tens of thousands of customers efficiently.
  • Service DNA – NPS scores from the customers you deliver to and support, along cost per delivered SEK, will be your north star metrics. 

You will work closely with other departments in the company to ensure a customer-first approach. Your success will be measured by metrics such as retention, NPS, share of addressable spend achieved per customer, ARR and LTV.

Who you are

As a Customer Support Manager you are a natural leader striving for excellence for yourself, your team, and the partnerships you build with external suppliers. You are proactive and outcome-oriented; you can articulate the desired outcome, required framework and execute with laser focus to achieve it. You curate and build on the ideas of others in pursuit of the best solution possible and, through collaboration with cross-functional stakeholders, receive buy-in for new ideas, products, and processes.

At Universal Avenue we are looking for people that are exceptional at what they do, people with the right attitude, high level of energy and a strong entrepreneurial drive. We are looking for people driven by both profit and purpose, who place great emphasis on work that truly matters.

You are persistent and curious, inspired by making a difference on a global scale, and have the dedication to achieve something greater than yourself. You are a true team player and enjoy a great degree of flexibility and freedom with clear deliverables. High pace is something you are used to, at times with tasks outside your job description requiring you to roll up your sleeves.
