Team Lead

Job description

We are 5CA. We work with well-known customers in the video games and technology industries to build great customer experiences. We provide omnichannel customer support in a wide variety of languages, always using the latest technologies and tools. We’re not your typical contact center. You won’t find any cubicles here.  

In just two short years we’ve grown our Utrecht HQ office from 15 to over 100 employees. 50 employees are working in our office in Buenos Aires and a brand new 5CA office in Los Angeles has been opened recently. Furthermore, there are more than 150 people who work from home to provide our services 24/7. This is a fast-paced, dynamic workplace where every day is different, and developments take place over the course of days, not weeks.  
5CA’s culture is shaped by a young and talented workforce hailing from all corners of the globe with a thirst for new and exciting technology and games as the binding factor. The 5CA workforce is a community of gamers, techies, and geeks. 5CA has a flat hierarchy and every team member is encouraged to bring out the best in themselves and act beyond the scope of their job description.
