  • Engage cross-departmental teams to share voice of client insights and lead initiatives to improve client experience.
  • Understand Sephora Client Services core business processes, including all system integrations with contact management platforms (i.e. phone, email, chat, and social media), to implement the optimal CRM workflow configurations for Sephora's contact center operations.
  • Design and implement projects that support Sephora Client Services strategy by defining, documenting, and aligning user profiles with business functions, creating workspaces, and developing automated workflows, custom fields, and business rule enhancements.
  • Identify department-specific business needs (e.g. agent productivity) and develop reports that address those needs.  Design reports requested by Client Services and other cross-functional partners (e.g. Supply Chain).
  • Provide first-line technical support for issues, incident requests, and upgrades related to the contact management platforms.  Partner with Sephora IT and vendor technical support as needed and provide technical assistance to Sephora Client Services team when required.

Working at Sephora’s Field Support Center (FSC)

Our North American operations are based in the heart of San Francisco’s Financial District, but you won’t hear us call it a headquarters – it’s the Field Support Center (FSC). At the FSC, we support our stores in providing the best possible experience for every client. Dedicated teams cater to our client’s every need by creating covetable assortments, curated content, compelling storytelling, smart strategy, skillful analysis, expert training, and more. It takes a lot of curious and confident individuals, disrupting the status quo and taking chances. The pace is fast, the fun is furious, and the passion is real. We never rest on our laurels. Our motto? If it’s not broken, fix it.



Sephora is an equal opportunity employer and values diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, ancestry, citizenship, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, marital status, military/veteran status, or disability status. Sephora is committed to working with and providing reasonable accommodation to applicants with physical and mental disabilities.
