Our customers dream of a better night’s sleep, a welcoming place to host their guests, a fun and safe place for their children to play.

Implement and manage systems to effectively tackle increasingly complex work

  • Create a plug and play script to enable a rapid growth of our pop-up stores and showrooms across the country
  • Create and manage systems to ensure that all the outbound leads are recorded and followed up on time
  • Create systems with other departments to ensure that payments are recorded on time, mattresses and other Moko’s products are available when needed, raw materials are ordered on time
