This role will be based in Abuja, but the candidate should be able to serve such areas as Adamawa and Ibadan 
As our Customer Success Representative, you will serve as the primary presence of DreamStart Labs in the Nigeria market. You will report to our Head of Customer Success in Kigali, Rwanda, and will work closely with our partner staff members and end-users using DreamSave in Nigeria. Your responsibilities will be divided into a few main areas:

  • Training – You will be the primary person responsible for training the local NGO staff on how to use DreamSave, including setting up groups, running meetings, answering questions, and troubleshooting problems.
  • Support – The most important aspect of this role will be supporting Opportunity International, other potential partners, and their groups, with excellent service as they use the DreamSave app. This will require being highly responsive when questions arise and helping to resolve them quickly. Some of these problems will require simple user education, while others will involve troubleshooting technical issues, and working with the DreamStart Labs team to ensure users get a resolution in a timely manner.
  • Market Development – A third area of responsibility will be working with other potential partners to better understand future market potential for DreamSave in Nigeria. The most notable set of partners will be Microfinance Institutions and Banks that are interested in linking with savings groups running DreamSave. This role will include having strategic meetings with MFIs and other similar market partners to better understand their interest in linking with savings groups. In this case, the Customer Success Representative will be acting as our business representative in Nigeria, working proactively with these partners. This could be one of the most exciting aspects of the role. You will be working creatively with financial service providers to help us design creative ways to link MFIs with savings groups running DreamSave.
  • Translation – Throughout this role, there will be the need to translate items for training or support purposes. Therefore, we will ask you to translate materials for the local market or record videos in Hausa for local partners and groups. Additionally, you will be involved in the ongoing translation of the DreamSave app into Hausa. 

KEY SUPPORT SUCCESS CRITERIAKey success factors for the support part of this role will include the following:

  • Be a DreamSave Expert. To be successful in this role, you will need to become an expert with the DreamSave app. You will spend time using the app yourself, engaging in ongoing discussions and trainings with the global Customer Success team, learning all the support tools, and staying current with the latest new features, bug fixes, tips, and tricks. Our partners and groups in Nigeria should be able to look to you as the #1 expert on how to excel with DreamSave.  
  • Be Positive and Professional. You will be the face of DreamStart Labs in Nigeria with our strategic partners and end-users. The way you treat our users will be a reflection on us. It is critical that our users feel loved, appreciated, and respected. Every interaction should be respectful, encouraging, and supportive. It’s not just about providing support, it’s about going above and beyond with a goal of delighting our partners and end-users. 
  • Be Responsive. In this kind of role, it is important to be responsive and available when a team member, partner, or end-user contacts you. For most day-to-day communications, you will need to respond within a few hours. For urgent support issues, the response time may need to be quicker. For example, if a group has everyone gathered together for a meeting and there is a problem with the app, they may need someone who can answer a support call and help them while they are at their meeting. If they can’t reach our support representative during a time of need, they will not feel supported. This is especially important in the first few months when everything is new, and partners and groups are forming their first impressions about DreamStart Labs. 
  • Be Proactive. You will be our representative in Nigeria, so you will need to be proactive in watching what is happening in the field and keeping DreamStart Labs informed. If you see potential problems or have ideas for improvement, you should bring them to our attention ASAP. This role is not just about waiting for a task list of action items. It’s your role to be passionate about the success of DreamSave and constantly looking for opportunities to help us succeed together.
  • Listen and Learn. When you talk with partners and users about problems or questions, your first job is to listen and make sure you understand the situation. The better you understand the situation, the better you will be able to help them. It’s also important to make sure they know we care about them and want them to succeed.
  • Help Solve Problems. Some users may contact you with a problem with the app or a question about something they don’t understand. In these cases, your job is to help them solve these issues as quickly as possible, working with the rest of the DreamStart Labs team.
  • Report Ideas, Suggestions, and Bugs. Savings groups will undoubtedly have ideas for improvements in DreamSave. Since software is always evolving, there will also be problems discovered along the way. Your job will be to collect all these ideas and issues, document them clearly in the support tools we provide, and follow up on them as needed.  

LOCATION OF ROLEThe ideal candidate would be located in Abuja, Adamawa or Ibadan. The candidate will need some schedule flexibility to do training or even a group visit during the day if needed. It will also be important to be connected with our internal team, partners, and end-users. To be successful, you will need to attend internal team meetings, be active on our Slack-based workspace asking questions and sharing your ideas and experiences, attend field training in-person when possible, and visit groups when possible to learn from them and make sure they feel like they are getting excellent service. 
TERM OF THE ROLE Our intent is for this to be an ongoing role in Nigeria. The best way to ensure this is to delight our partners and end users. If the partners and groups you support are successful, and our business grows, this role will continue as a long-term position.
