Job Description

About the Role

We’re looking for a passionate, detail-oriented Customer Success Operations Manager to help us manage and deliver our workplace culture Film Forward program to our clients. Built around a library of exceptional short movies, Film Forward helps organizations implement, execute and measure a sustainable practice to cultivate a workplace that works for everyone. Each month, participants watch an award-winning short film, engage in personal reflections and actions, expand individual knowledge through cultural literacy and then join a facilitated conversation. 

Your role is to organize customer deliverables from a macro level, join and document client onboarding calls, build out customer-specific platform experiences, communicate with clients about their deliverables when necessary, and coordinate between internal departments to ensure successful delivery of the program to customers. You also focus on ensuring client success by facilitating technical support to end users and proactively project managing the end-to-end delivery process. These programs have a lot of moving parts, and you’ll oversee calendars, documents, client contacts and communications, working closely with other team members to appropriately customize the product for each client.

You are part of our customer delivery team and will work closely alongside the rest of the Customer Success team, Sales, and Product Management to ensure our services are delivered successfully. This is an exciting opportunity to take on a critical role within our team, using your operational experience to execute on important client deliverables while also assisting in evolving this team into a sustainable, scalable customer success team. Film Forward is a product in high demand, and you will help us develop and implement Customer Success delivery best practices. This is a full time position.


About YOU

You love processes. More specifically, you love repeatable processes. You are organized, very detail-oriented and you know your way around Google calendars, docs and spreadsheets. Keeping track of several moving parts at once is no big deal for you because you are a project management wiz. And in your wizardry, you also know things can change, so you are comfortable when processes need to evolve. Heck, sometimes you’re the one driving the change, because you are proactive and apply your critical thinking when it comes to improving our operational systems. As we expand our Film Forward program, this growth mindset will help you thrive!

With this love for process and your proven project management success, you also enjoy working with data - pulling data, reviewing it, reporting on it. You can identify what data is meaningful, why, who needs to see it and how they need to see it. And when not in the data, reports or process, you can switch gears and bring your own professional customer service voice to client emails and video calls, since being an active and present communicator is key in this role. 

We are all working remotely for the foreseeable future, so it’s important that you are proactive in your internal communication and how you handle your workload. You’re a team player, and we’re looking forward to building a team environment in which we care for each other’s psychological safety, have our voices heard and shift each others’ perspectives.
