Customer Experience Lead

Let's review: this is a lead role for managing multi-channel support agents, offering frontline support yourself, and executing duties that should be undertaken by a possibly fictional Director. For $20-$25 in Oakland, CA. Talk about some branding!

Dutch | $20-$25/hr

Steph's Notes:

This one was submitted by John C. Thanks! John reports that he interviewed for a Director role at this company some time ago, and they're now hiring for Lead role that's hybrid out of Oakland, CA.

So, this one feels like a whole story. One of the co-founders of this company, a "serial entrepreneur," started with Hims & Hers, which was an erectile dysfunction and male baldness company and a women's birth control and mental health meds company, respectively.

Of this founding experience, apparently, Spector's "biggest lesson from Hims & Hers was the importance of branding." Because when you're dealing with people's mental and physical health, the most important thing is obviously being recognizable.

Anyway, today's subject company, Dutch, is described as "a fast-growing tech company that is revolutionizing veterinary care" which is always frustrating for me. Everything is always "revolutionize this" or "disrupt that" – like, are you actually making vet care better? Or are you just trying to cash in by putting local vets out of business and making vet care harder to access and worse for everyone?

They realized the gap between suffering pets and high-quality, specialized care was far too wide. Dutch was founded to provide our pets with modern telemedicine—treatments rooted in science delivered monthly with ongoing support from trusted vets. After all, every pet should be able to access what it needs to live its happiest and healthiest life.

So...no to the former, yes to the latter. Honestly, it sounds to me like they invented a gap in vet care and then raised on it.

We want to hear from people that are excited by tackling the hard problems

Is the hard problem that Dutch can't or won't properly compensate people for the work they're doing? (Spoiler alert, I guess).

Because this role balances direct customer support with supporting agents who are doing the same, this role requires a highly motivated individual who is energized by curating best-in-class customer experiences, developing long-lasting relationships, and acting as a mentor to CX agents.

Oh, I bet it then comes with best-in-class pay, right? RIGHT?

Customer Outreach

Oh boy, now what does that mean?

Additional Projects: Collaborate with CX & Ops teams to build a process to monitor, flag, and send outreach as needed for late orders.

Woof – pun intended. 1) How many late orders are we talking that you need a task force for handling them, and 2) what exactly is the CX Director doing, assuming they exist?

The only two "benefits" that appear in that section are "competitive compensation" (oh just wait) and "hybrid work environment," which – say it with me! – IS NOT A BENEFIT.

$20 - $25 an hour

YEP. YOU READ THAT RIGHT. $20 to $25 per hour in Oakland, CA!

Now, we all know that I am a petty bitch. So, did I look up the minimum livable wage in Oakland as of 2023? Sure did!

A single person with no children needs $84,026 after taxes to support a comfortable lifestyle in San Francisco-Oakland-Berkeley.

That is $40.40 per hour for those of you following along at home.
