About Auror

At Auror, we’re empowering the retail industry to reduce theft and Organized Retail Crime, a $100 billion problem globally. It’s high volume crime that’s increasingly organized in nature and is putting people, retailers, and communities at risk every day.

Founded in New Zealand, we’re working with some of the best and largest retailers in the world across Australia, New Zealand, North America, and the UK.

Auror connects people with intelligence to reduce crime. As a company, we’ve built a high-performing, positive culture with a focus on providing an inclusive environment for a diverse team. If you’re excited about reducing crime and building safer communities, for everyone, then we want you on our team.

About Customer Success at Auror

Customer Success at Auror is high impact. As we bring on some of the world's largest retailers a lot of our time is spent on planning and delivering large-scale rollouts, running training sessions for thousands of users and creating strategic engagement plans that ensures our customers see a reduction of crime and harm in their stores. And we are incredibly successful in doing this.

We pride ourselves on the partnerships we have with our customers. We have an incredible NPS score of 66 and continue to have high engagement and satisfaction from our customers.

About the role

The role of the Customer Success Specialist is to engage, empower, and excite our community of crimefighters. As a Customer Success Specialist, your primary responsibility is to ensure both retailers and police, who make up our crimefighter community, have great experiences and achieve real crime reduction outcomes from using our platform.

Through being deeply tactical and using relational engagement you’ll empower our Auror user community to help them derive value from the platform. You do this by building strong relationships with Loss Prevention teams and Loss Prevention leaders, understanding the value Auror can bring to our customers. You will be embedding Auror across stores in Australia’s largest retailers, telling stories through insights and outcomes,  and ensuring they are achieving real outcomes and success in line with the success plan.

Your responsibilities

  • Building and nurturing relationships with store teams and Loss Prevention leaders, partnering with them to support their team's reporting, use and overall success of Auror
  • Proactively identifying areas of opportunity to ensure our customers are engaged with Auror, contributing to the creation of engagement plans, ultimately helping them reduce crime and increase safety in their stores
  • Reviewing customer usage in the platform, understanding how they are utilising the platform, surfacing wins & outcomes, and then effectively communicating this back to the customer to drive meaningful outcomes
  • Training and presenting to large groups of users, and stakeholders remotely or in-person

The role reports to Sianne Hussey, Customer Success Lead and Digital/Customer Experience - Australia

I joined the team of incredible people at Auror to be part of the solution that’s empowering retailers and police globally to stop crime, for good. It’s really something to work with a company where everyday I can see the positive impact Auror has on communities.

Auror trusts and pushes me to do my best work and be myself whilst supporting and enabling me to continue to grow. This lets me in turn do what I love doing: empowering our team. The Customer Success team inspire me with their deliberateness when they’re engaging with our retail partners and the standard of quality and fun they hold themselves to.

  • Have good problem-solving skills with a natural affinity with technology and people.

  • Flexibility: We are hard-working and outcome focused, but recognise there is more to life than work. We promote a healthy work/life blend.

  • Mental and physical health: We understand how vital both mental and physical health is, and have policies to support that, including Wellness Days (days that you can take for any reason whatsoever, not just for when you’re sick/ unwell).

Next steps:

We pride ourselves on creating an environment where everyone can develop and grow, safely. So if you’re not sure that you tick all the boxes but feel you’re close to what we’re looking for, please apply anyway as we’d love to hear from you! We’d like to encourage you to show yourself in your application.

Once you apply, you’ll hear from us to acknowledge your application. From there our interview process is designed both for us to get to know you and equally for you to know us - the team, the role and Auror.

Here's some insight on what to expect:

  1. If you’re excited about our mission and you have experience and a passion for this role, please apply! You'll be asked to submit a cover letter as part of your application. While this is optional we do encourage it, as we find cover letters can tell a story that resumes alone often cannot. Our hiring team loves to understand what attracted you to this role and why you are excited about the opportunity to join Auror.
  2. If you're shortlisted you'll be invited to answer several questions through a recorded video interview. We have chosen to incorporate this into our process as this role will require you to feel comfortable connecting with internal and external customers on video. It's also a really great way for us to get to know you better beyond just your CV!
  3. If that goes well,  you will then meet with Sianne and one of the Auror Customer Success team members virtually, this will be an opportunity for you to get to know us and ask all your burning questions.
  4. The final stage our Customer Success Leads, Sianne and Jess, will host you onsite at our Melbourne office and we will ask you to prepare a challenge to present. This is a case that has been designed to mimic the work of an Auror Customer Success Specialist, so we will have the opportunity to see how you would approach the role and you’ll get a feel for what your day to day would look like.

Auror is the platform for retailers focused on preventing crime, reducing loss, and making stores safer.
