The ideal candidate for this role has prior experience providing exceptional support in a customer-facing role (in either support, content moderation, or trust & safety), enjoys mentoring others, and is excited about building out new programs from the ground up that will help our team succeed.

  • Your interpersonal & leadership skills shine through your ability to communicate clearly with a team and with agents on different levels
  • You’re proficient with Excel or other relevant BI tools (strongly preferred)

An Insider's view of Skillshare

What are some social events your company does?

Moving fully remote has meant changing our approach to team-bonding. We are keeping the energy up with happy hours, trading Zoom backgrounds, and, recently, our affinity group for women of color hosted company-wide trivia that kicked off with a Rihanna dance break.

Chantel

Senior Creative Producer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Cross-team collaboration is frequent and organic at Skillshare; we foster a uniquely friendly atmosphere of openness and shared purpose. Through cross-team threads, project-based meetings, comments on RFC's, pull request reviews, Q&A sessions, and, of course, simple conversations, collaboration commonly happens across a table or across time zones.

Justin

Director of Engineering

What are some things you learned at the company?

I was immediately impressed and encouraged by the creative problem solving at Skillshare. Data plays a huge part in learning about our members, determining the most popular classes, and fostering creative community. I was a student within the community long before helping build it. My favorite experience so far has been learning watercolor basics.

Zhen

Director of Business Intelligence

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

As a management team, we strongly believe in making ourselves accessible. This includes: 1:1s with direct reports, skip-level meetings, team-wide meetings, coffees with people across departments, and attending team events. More broadly, we apply the same foundational rule we all learned in kindergarten: treat people the way you want to be treated.

Sabrina

COO

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

We're in an exciting position - we have a product that we believe in and a community that believes in us. The question we face is: how can we build a platform which works for the Skillshare of today, but will scale to the needs of the Skillshare of the future? It’s not enough to keep up with growth; we must build for where our growth will take us.
