Archive Job Description

As Skillshare’s Head of Platform Operations, you’ll oversee our talented support, trust & safety, and moderation teams who provide an inclusive, safe, and transparent platform experience for our vibrant global user base. You’ll report directly to the COO and represent operations across the company – anticipating our growing platform needs and leading the strategy to meet them, and evangelizing the impact of operations from a broader business perspective with high-level stakeholders.

We’ll look to your track record leading multi-tiered trust & safety operations, customer support, or policy development for global platforms with user-generated content to drive our operations into the next phase of scale and empower our teams to deliver an amazing experience to our community.

What you’ll do:

  • Oversee and evangelize Skillshare’s platform operations, including customer support, trust & safety, policy, and moderation
  • Manage and scale a team of 5 in-house employees and a large group of global contract support, trust & safety, and moderation agents
  • Identify areas of improvement for our operations, customer experience, and moderation policies and collaborate with other departments to implement changes
  • Lead the operations team to provide the insights and platform to deliver a world-class experience across user touch points
  • Proactively anticipate and address our needs as we scale internationally, including policies and guidelines that we will need to put into place to address users in different markets
  • Determine and evolve success metrics for platform operations based on data analysis, platform updates, and global user trends

Why we’re excited about you:

  • You have a demonstrated track record of leading global platform operations for tech companies with multiple customer segments and business lanes
  • You’ve led multi-tiered trust & safety, customer support, and/or moderation for global platforms with user-generated content – experience with developing and leading policy strategy is a huge plus
  • You’re a strong manager with diverse team-building experience, and a track record of attracting and retaining great talent.
  • You understand how to engage, train, and inspire global teams at scale.
  • You have a user-centric mindset and a demonstrated track record of championing the user to influence business decisions
  • You have experience managing complex cross-functional projects, building trusted relationships, and influencing stakeholders at all levels
  • You’re an effective communicator who is able to convey complex ideas in a clear, concise manner

Why you’re excited about us:

  • Impact: You’ll be at the helm of an incredibly talented team, building upon our existing support, trust & safety, and moderation foundations to drive our operations into the next phase of global scale.
  • Growth: We invest in our people. You’ll have the opportunity to grow your team and take on more responsibility over time.
  • Our team: We have a passionate, talented team that is a lot of fun to work with.
  • Our mission: We’re doing work that matters – connecting lifelong learners around the world and empowering them to pursue their creativity.
  • Flexibility: We believe that doing your best work means living a full life. That means different things for everyone, so we optimize for trust, invest to support remote teams, have an unlimited vacation policy (with a required minimum!), and encourage work-life balance.
