Communities Moderator at CrowdStreet
Portland, OR, US

About the Role - Communities Moderator

To facilitate our continued rapid growth with a focus on customer experience, we have identified a critical new role that will manage the communication in our investor forums. This role will report to the Director of Customer Operations. 

One aspect of the CrowdStreet customer experience is the opportunity to be part of an investor community. Once an investor completes an investment in one of the marketplace offerings they are able to access an investor only forum enabling the ability to share knowledge and learn from other investors.

The role of the Communities Moderator is to facilitate discussions taking place in the forums, promote interaction, maintain orderly conduct between investors and sponsors as needed, and ensure content is relevant for the forum or point investors to the right area if direction is needed.  

To achieve this goal, the Communities Moderator will be responsible for developing a communication strategy for the forums via partnership with internal CrowdStreet teams, reviewing and directing forum content, and escalating issues that arise that may require sponsor or leadership direction. Additionally, this role will be responsible for reviewing CrowdStreet feedback provided in the form of reviews and respond or escalate as needed to alleviate customer concerns. 

What You’ll Be Doing

  • Building the strategy for our investor Forums that is focused on engagement and customer delight with metrics around customer satisfaction and repeat investments

  • Demonstrated experience managing a customer community and building a strategy for interacting with customers in a forum setting
