Who Boundless Is

Boundless, a Seattle, Washington-based company specializing in U.S. immigration services, is seeking an experienced Operations leader to join our team as the Director of Operations for our Philippines organization. We have ~300 full-time employees across the Philippines and the U.S. (with 200+ in the Philippines), and have been featured in The New York Times, NBC News, and Univision. Our commitment to excellence has earned us an A+ Better Business Bureau rating and the 2018 "Business of the Year" award. As we continue to grow and invest in our Philippines Operations, we are looking for a strong Operations leader to lead the largest team at our company.

Your Mission

As the Director of Operations, you will lead and manage our passionate and rapidly growing Operations Team in Manila and Cebu. This includes our Financial Operations Team, our Support Inquiry Triaging Team, and our Case Production and Data Review functions. You will drive critical business decisions by tracking, analyzing, and evaluating operational processes for both our business-to-business and direct-to-consumer segments. Your role will engage with internal stakeholders to drive operational effectiveness, enhance performance, and ensure a great strong adherence to KPIs. You will effectively improve operational processes, partner with cross functional team members, and execute process changes while being customer centered and a strong people leader.

You possess the capability of extracting information from various sources, compiling and sharing information, and developing plans for improvement. You have a passion for data, efficiency, process improvements, and are adaptable to change in a fast-paced organization with a high level of execution. You embody the concept of “ownership” and instill it in your managers, team leads, and individual contributors. This is not a task and execution role—you are responsible for coming up with and delivering on the vision that best helps achieve the ambitious goals of the company. You are also motivated by performance-driven success and the impact Boundless is making on our customers.

In this role, you will work closely with functional executives across the company, including the CEO, to create and deliver the best customer experience in the industry. The role requires you to report to our Cebu City office, make occasional trips to our Manila office and the U.S. (we’ll help you apply for a travel visa), and work with significant overlap during U.S. Pacific Time Zone work hours.

In this role, you will:
