Director of Customer Success

Lightboard seeks a Director of Customer Success to lead our team of designers and account managers to delight our hundreds of customers.

About Lightboard

We are a no-nonsense design service that delivers quality craftsmanship to established brands like Autodesk, GitHub, and Microsoft, as well as innovative younger companies.

We believe the traditional agency model is fundamentally broken. Our clients don't need a full-service creative agency—they've already developed their strategy and need high-quality design to bring it to life, quickly and efficiently.

And that's what Lightboard does.

We're looking for:

  • Excellent communication skills.
  • Experience working within an agency environment.
  • Experience scheduling and allocating resources.
  • Excellent grasp of modern marketing campaigns and platforms (i.e. Marketo, Hubspot, Salesforce)

How to know if you're a great fit:

  • Analytical approach to improve process.
  • Excited by new beginnings and solving problems.
  • Interested in making a direct impact in a growing company.

  • Extraordinary collection of funny cat GIFs.
  • Expertise at starting bullet points with E.
