Job Overview
Director, Digital Experience Ottawa Remote-US Full time R012746 Ciena may well be the most important technology company you’ve never heard of. The innovations that wow us (driverless cars), and those we now take for granted (the ability to mobile-stream your favorite show) are the products of ingenuity from some brilliant and forward-thinking companies. But those companies rely on Ciena, another vanguard of innovation, to create and advance the underlying networks that bring their breakthroughs to our doorsteps. VR, AI, IOT, 5G … literally none of it would be possible without the mind-boggling technology that makes the internet itself work. For more than 25 years, Ciena has been the global leader in networking strategy, and our technology has been part of the critical infrastructure running within the most advanced companies in the world. Rewarding experience. Meaningful outcomes. Making a difference in people’s lives through the design and implementation of leading network technologies. That’s what motivates us. Embrace inclusion. Celebrate diversity. Champion ideas. From across the table to around the world, our path to innovation comes from our friendly environment and outstanding people. That’s the Ciena network. As Director, Digital Experience within our Global Technical Support (GTS) organization, you will be responsible for plotting the GTS strategic evolution and our Digital Transformation roadmap. This strategic leader will define and deliver on the long-term vision of best-in-class technical support services for Ciena customers. A vital piece of that vision will include defining and driving world-class Digital Experiences for the customer as an entry point into Technical Support (Platforms, Tools, Channels, Self-Service).

  • Lead, build and prioritize the GTS Digital Experience Strategy plan and drive our partners for timely and quality execution.

  • In collaboration with our Operations Excellence group, establish best practices and processes across GTS and our partners.
  • Translate industry trends, benchmarks, and market positions into tangible opportunities for GTS’ evolution.
  • Responsible for leading our KCS (Knowledge-Centered Support) program, driving up the maturity curve and stakeholder adoption.
  • While focus is on long-term strategy, the near-term technical deliverables need to effectively support GTS stakeholders.
  • Lead, manage and develop a diverse high performing team of digital product/project managers as well as tools & infrastructure SME’s to facilitate the implementation and operationalization of our Digital experience initiatives.
  • Collaborate with our partners (Services R&D, IT, 3rd Parties) to project manage and execute on our Digital Experience plan.

  • Strong Customer Satisfaction and Customer Experience feedback on Ciena’s Technical Support Services
  • Positive Customer Effort scores & feedback, particularly in the area of our channel offerings.
  • Improved First Contact Resolution (FCR) rates by directing customers to the right channel depending on the issue or subject.
  • Strong Employee Satisfaction (ESAT) and Engagement given that the team is closely connected and understanding of our vision, roadmap, and capabilities.
  • Marked, regular, and visible evolution in GTS’ technological capabilities and digital presence (Self-Service, Channels, Portals, Mobile, Platforms)
