Job Description

Caviar has three customers whom we empower with our food ordering platform: Diners who order, Restaurants who fulfill, and Couriers who deliver.

  • Analyze the success rates of new hires and use that data to refine our hiring profile.
  • Be accountable for the quality and performance of recently graduated and tenured supporters.

You have:

  • The ability to deliver results with minimal oversight. You are self-motivated and require little direction.
  • Experience working with and creating training content for overseas agents.
  • 3+ years of experience in Learning and Development in a business setting.
  • A willingness to get your hands dirty to understand the problems that face our customers and our team.
  • A background in education/learning services is a plus.
  • An analytical, data-focused mindset.
  • A deep grasp of educational concepts from content creation to delivery to coaching.
  • A track record of results in a metrics-driven environment.
