You will drive time-based actions and work cross-functionally across Chewy to ensure executive escalations/inquiries are quickly understood and fully resolved (for all customers). Then, you will operate at depth to ensure they never happen again. Additionally, you will own the “looking around corners” to ensure potential customer defects are systemically solved before they become issues.

  • Effectively communicate, written and verbally, with senior leadership from other organizations to align resources and priorities to ensure timely closure of escalation scenarios and RCA completion.

  • Responsible for leading Lean/Continuous Improvement projects and programs, setting priorities, creating road maps, evaluating projects, and ensuring the team meets or exceeds the customer service organization's objectives.

  • Responsible for cultivating a Continuous Improvement Culture, including education/advocacy across the entire Customer Service network and beyond to partner teams.

  • Analyze large data sets and dig into details to assess trends and areas of opportunity that will have the biggest impact on customer experience.

  • Be flexible in approach from a tool-set perspective using appropriate lean-sigma, innovation, and analytical methods.

  • Ability to think big and scale enough to align with current growth projections. Must be flexible, have a dynamic and innovative mindset, and strongly emphasize customer experience and safety.

  • Partner with multiple functions to develop content leveraging a deep understanding of Chewy’s processes, including flows and standards.

  • Work with product/technology and operations leadership to identify process bottlenecks and build data-supported solutions.

  • Ability to travel (15-20%) to different sites throughout the US.

What you’ll need:

  • 8+ years’ experience in program or project management in a leading role, with direct customer service program experience strongly preferred.

  • Bachelor's degree in a related field preferred (Technical, Business, Management).

  • Strong written and oral communication skills for effective communication across all levels, including the C-Suite.

  • A writing sample will be required.

  • Proven ability to drive and manage multiple competing priorities and projects urgently in a fast-paced environment requiring continuous innovation.
