About us

Hugo is transforming the future of a continent by re-envisioning the future of its work. We exist to provide BPO excellence to our customers by investing heavily in the very best of African talent. 

African communities currently reap less than 2% of a BPO market worth a staggering $430 billion annually. We are changing this. 

Specialising in digital and AI operations, omnichannel customer support, and trust & safety solutions for some of the world’s largest tech and media companies, we are providing the continent’s university educated youth with the skills necessary to build a meaningful career in the global digital economy. All whilst delivering industry-beating excellence for our clients. 

What you’ll be doing

You will originate our Business Process Optimization role, overseeing core operations process mapping, analysis, (re)design, documentation, operationalisation and governance activities. 

You will be accountable for implementing business process optimisation solutions for our client facing service delivery organization, which makes up the vast majority of our 1500+ employees. 

Why is the role important to us? We are a rapidly expanding organization. We doubled in size in 2023 and we're not slowing down. So, we must review and, where required, revise our business processes to ensure that we are set up to scale rapidly and smoothly, and our growth is supported by elegantly simple processes strongly adhered to.  

Beyond this initial heavy lift you will champion a culture of continuous process improvement so that we are at all times operating at peak quality and efficiency. And you will oversee the institutionalization of, and adherence to, our processes.

Your solutions will be designed for us to adapt nimbly to even the most unexpected of client requirements. Optimizing our processes excellently with an uncompromising focus on quality and efficiency guarantees that we may continue delivering to our big tech clients the excellence they have come to expect from us. 

What success in this role looks like

Short-term: A completed audit and analysis of all core business processes

Mid-term: A quality and future-proofed mapped, optimized, documented, and operationalized process for each key service delivery activity

Long term: An embedded culture of process optimisation across the organization

What you’ll need to apply

An extensive and demonstrable history of delivering business process optimisation for core operations, which is able to stand up to our scrutiny

A range of robust yet adaptable business process optimisation methodologies applied through the lens of a sharply analytics mind

Experience of operating successfully in startup/scaleup environments combined with a true understanding of what good looks at a mature, high-caliber organization.
