Job Title:  Client Engagement Workforce Management Manager

Since inception, crypto has been changing the world - and the Kraken team is leading the charge. Over the last decade Kraken has risen to become one of the best and most respected crypto exchanges in the world; they are changing the way we think about money and finance. With a staff of  over 1300 employees in over 60 countries, the business is on an exciting trajectory and is looking to add an outstanding Workforce Management  Leader  to their Client Engagement  team.  


Role Description    

As the Workforce Management Manager, you will be tasked with building out the Workforce Management team and delivering strategic, creative solutions for  our toughest workforce challenges across the company. Reporting to the Senior Direction of Client Engagement Operations, as a skilled and experienced WFM professional you will add value to Kraken by understanding, forecasting, staffing, scheduling, and monitoring the client engagement service channels, all of whom work in a remote environment. Kraken is on an exciting trajectory  and  you will  play a crucial role in the optimization of  workflow.    


Your responsibilities will include:  

  • Manage Client Engagement’s workforce management strategy, overseeing forecasting, staffing, recourse planning, scheduling and real-time operations across all CE workgroups  
  • Build and manage a WFM team, directing managing 5-10 WFM experts
  • Investigate, propose, and drive the adoption and use of industry leading WFM technologies to better understand staffing needs, improve worker scheduling, and otherwise optimize CE’s WFM strategy
  • Partner with Data teams to monitor WFM process performance, and identify opportunities to increase resource utilization

  • Regularly present your team’s work, recommendations, roadmaps and results to stakeholders and the company, using data to support recommendations and communicate results  
  • Represent Kraken in relationships with WFM vendors and BPO companies in calls,  emails,  and on-site events to drive WFM initiatives  

Your Qualifications    

You have a passion for strategic thinking, analytics, and implementation of efficient practices. You are inclined to approach work creatively, problem solve critically, and regularly “think outside of the box”. Fair evaluation of all possible options is crucial. A desire to create a unique, and exceptional WFM team  and WFM practices should be second to none.  Having built or developed a WFM environment previously, you’re not  afraid to roll-up-your sleeves and be a  hands-on team player.    


Your qualifications include:  

  • 10+ years of workforce management experience, 5+ years of related experience using analytical skills and a structured problem-solving approach, 5+ years as a project manager, senior forecaster, or manager of analytics    
  • In-depth and  hands-on  experience with WFM tools, ideally multiple different tools. Experience implementing and executing a WFM tool  would be a bonus  
  • Highly adaptable and flexible  to  meet the evolving needs of a high- growth, dynamic and fast paced organization

  • Experience in both a start-up and a large global company, ideally in a volatile industry  
  • Experience working remotely    
  • An appreciation for privacy, security, “crypto values”, and sound money
