Director of IT
5CA is a global Customer Experience (CX) provider, with over 2,000 employees – and growing – who work from home across 95+ countries . This is why a rock-solid cloud infrastructure is key for 5CA’s ongoing success. And the company is now hiring a Director of IT to push the company’s global tech forward towards their brighter future.
In 1998, 5CA was founded with a simple idea. As society was embracing more technology, the founders identified a gap to support clients with its use. 5CA’s strategy is to give customers that use technology a superior experience, on any channel, and in any language.
From its humble beginnings in The Netherlands, 5CA’s supports clients around the world, from Pakistan to Argentina. While the HQ is still in Utrecht, their global reach now spans 95 countries, thanks to 5CA’s pioneering work-from-home approach. All the CX employees (‘agents’) work 100% offsite using a remote operating model that lets 5CA source and deploy the best international talent. The highly engaged, digitally native agents have the right knowledge and a genuine passion for the brands they support.
“5CA’s secure cloud-based ecosystem helps our CX employees worldwide to excel at their jobs, while the company’s in-depth insights allow brands to fully customize and optimize CX.” Nick Pauli, Chief Executive Officer at 5CA
5CA describes their people as their ‘superpower’ and is a culturally-strong and diverse company to work for. They give employees a place to feel at home while they work from home. Their blended, human-centric culture spans 70+ nationalities, with agents from all walks of life, hobbies and interests.
5CA has rapidly grown from 200 to over 2,000 people, of which 95% work from home: this requires an excellent cloud-based IT structure. The company is hiring a Director of IT who will lead the development of the right technology infrastructure to keep up with the company’s rapid growth.
