Conversation Design Program Manager



Design, Operations
New York, NY, USA · San Francisco, CA, USA
Posted on Tuesday, September 12, 2023

About Us:

We're on a mission to make it possible for every person, team, and company to be able to tailor their software to solve any problem and take on any challenge. Computers may be our most powerful tools, but most of us can't build or modify the software we use on them every day. At Notion, we want to change this with focus, design, and craft.

We've been working on this together since 2016, and have customers like Pixar, Mitsubishi, Figma, Plaid, Match Group, and thousands more on this journey with us. Today, we're growing fast and excited for new teammates to join us who are the best at what they do. We're passionate about building a company as diverse and creative as the millions of people Notion reaches worldwide.

Notion is an in person company, and currently requires its employees to come to the office for two Anchor Days (Mondays & Thursdays) and requests that employees spend the majority of their week in the office (including a third day).

About The Role:

The mission of the Conversation Designer is to design an effortless, best-in-class customer support journey. This includes setting strategy and designing flows for our automated support platform, as well as overseeing and creating agent-facing documentation. You will report into the Global Training Manager, and be an integral part of designing conversation experiences that drive faster and more effective issue resolution for Notion’s customers.

In this role, you will take ownership of our CX knowledge base (Zendesk Guide) and the Workflow Builder within our chatbot (Forethought) by auditing conversation flows created by other CX team members, authoring conversation flows yourself, and implementing standards for future conversation design. You will be a strategic advisor, subject-matter expert, and thought leader.

What You'll Achieve:

  • Use analytics, A/B testing, and generative AI recommendations to measure performance and identify gaps within the customer support journey. Translate data into actionable improvements.
  • Define conversation design strategy and guidelines to inform the work of our Subject Matter Experts (SMEs). Oversee all changes to the customer support journey through approval of new processes and workflows.
  • Identify and action on cost-saving opportunities within both chatbot experiences and agent-facing processes, prioritizing those with the highest impact.
  • Write and maintain process articles, prewritten responses, model/intent training, and bot conversations (including scenario design and flow mapping) in support of new product launches and operational scope changes.
  • Partner with CX Leaders to drive visibility and with training and quality teams to communicate knowledge base changes and measure success.

Skills You'll Need to Bring:

  • You have 4+ years of conversation design experience with in-depth knowledge of conversational design, Knowledge Base authoring experience, UX copy, or linguistic content verification.
  • Demonstrated experience designing best-in-class customer experiences using both chat bots and agent-driven process; using data to show the ROI from those designs
  • Have a metrics mindset: You believe success is a measured outcome, and will dive deep into data to inform design and prioritization decisions.
  • You are able to determine root cause in order to solve complex user issues through conversation design.
  • You have a proven ability to deal with ambiguity in a rapidly changing business environment.
  • You have experience with Forethought, Ada, or Liveperson, and using generative AI for support automation.

Nice to Haves:

  • Experience at a high-growth SaaS company
  • Experience with Zendesk Guide
