  • Execute internal and external processes for responding to policy violations.
  • Issue formal policy violation notices to offending sellers according to the established escalation path.
  • Investigate and address potential off-platform sales based on buyer/seller interactions and various analytical tools, processing orders for any confirmed off-platform sales.
  • Identify, structure, and recommend opportunities to surface additional potential off-platform sales, or improvements to current investigative processes.
  • Handle all but the most escalated communications with sellers resulting from transactional-policy compliance activities. 
  • Collaborate with internal stakeholders from the cross-functional teams at 1stDibs to develop and continuously improve best practices, procedures, and tools related to compliance with seller policies.
  • Weekend shifts may be necessary

What you’ll bring

  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Web savvy with strong analytical and research skills
  • Exceptional judgment and critical thinking skills
  • Can set work priorities in ambiguous and rapidly changing situations
  • Comfortable contributing to a collaborative team environment
