*This is currently the only job position available.
Hello, interested candidates! I’m Neil, the owner of Boba Tea Protein. We are in search of an extroverted influencer manager / CSR fluent in both Mandarin (can speak Mandarin, but read and write in simplified Chinese) and English whose responsibility will be to do everything I currently do for the customer experience and influencer side of the business, but better. This person should be passionate about boba and enjoys living a healthy lifestyle.
Most importantly, this person is naturally very empathetic with customers and can always understand where people are coming from and are never unfairly frustrated with a customer. They understand that developing a good customer experience process revolves around finding solutions that makes sense for both the business and the customer and that there is virtually always a reasonable solution to every customer inquiry.
This person is the type of person that naturally enjoys speaking with lots of people and may even often search for new friends to hang out with.
This person should be naturally very organized and loves making sure things happen on time and efficiently, especially when it comes to responding to customers in a timely manner and making sure influencers are coordinated with in a timely manner.
This person should also naturally enjoy assisting people in finding solutions that work for both the customer and the business.
Additionally, this person should be able to do mostly task-based assignments while also being able to self-manage project-based assignments given to them. The projects would entail building out some systems revolving around customer experience and influencer management.
This position has a good chance for upward mobility if the company grows large enough to hire either a Customer Experience Specialist or a Social Media Manager. If either of those positions sounds like something you may be interested in the future, then this job may be a good stepping stone for you to attain those higher positions.
Lastly, there are many scenarios where being fluent in Mandarin will be very useful for us, so wherever/whenever we encounter those situations, you will help us there as well.

Will be hybrid work, but will come on-site a lot more often in the beginning for training. Additionally, there may be week some weeks where you need to come in every day depending on the scope of a launch or systems needing to be built.
