Head of Customer Experience

The company has an informative Careers page and the job duties make sense overall, but I'm going to say Tread Carefully for this one.

Steph's Notes:

The company has an informative Careers page and the job duties make sense overall, but I'm going to say Tread Carefully for this one, for several reasons:

  1. The listed job title doesn't match the title in the job description;
  2. The job function under this role switches from Support to CX randomly.
  3. Font sizes and possibly actual fonts change from paragraph to paragraph and sometimes within the same line.
  4. There are repeated qualifications requiring, ironically, attention to detail.
  5. What feels like a low salary for a Head of / Director-level role, especially since the JD notes that this range is for high cost-of-living areas and may be adjusted "based on our geographical pay approach."

Now, some of these things may be because the Support team and/or the hiring manager is overworked and under pressure to get a JD out, but some of these issues are glaring enough that I would expect someone to have caught them (either before posting or after).

If I were applying for this role, I'd ask my interviewer to confirm the details of the role, how they arrived at that salary range, and to elaborate on the Support team's bandwidth/turnover rate.
