The Role:

Crafty is seeking an experienced Director of Client Services to lead our managed service business unit! The Director of Client Services is responsible for leading, coaching and mentoring their team with a focus on developing and scaling our largest and fastest growing business unit. Crafty’s Client Services comprises of each element of our client-facing services team –  account management, field operations, and customer success. This individual will be both building strategies for their sales & account management teams to grow our client base, as well as analyzing our cost structure to find room for efficiencies.

Over the first 2 years we've multiplied our top-line each year, and we fully expect to continue the same over the coming years. Our Client Success, Accounts, and Sales teams are maturing into a first class, industry leading Client Services organization.

There are four main functions of this role as this individual will lead our client services organization and continue to build our Managed Service programs.

1. People management: This role requires a strong people leader - you will be leading teams of account managers and field operations, customer success coordinators, and implementation specialists as we continue to build out and manage client locations.

2. Strategy: As the business unit continues to grow, our programs should as well. We must continuously adapt to the market. This role takes a higher-level view of our product and how it solves the problems of our clients. Whether it’s thinking about increasing the share of wallet, expanding into new categories that the client is asking for, or determining new productization options, this role should be constantly pushing the thinking on how we go to market.

3. Operations & implementation: Organizational strategy is something that constantly needs to be reworked as we grow. We’re always in search of more economical ways to build a stronger operational support for our on-the-ground execution. Much of this requires systems to be put in place to support every member of the team, and to allow us to scale more efficiently.

4. Cross-functional problem solving: The ideal candidate is an expert at communicating the big picture, is able and willing to be hands-on, and understands all tasks and responsibilities of their team. This individual will work closely with internal teams such as Sales, Operations, Finance and Product Design.

The day-to-day of this role lives primarily in people development and operations, and the higher-level side of this role focuses on solving for a more efficient and scalable business unit:

  1. Build, support, and adapt systems that span the Client Services division.

  2. Work alongside sales to bridge the gap between sales and implementation of our product.

  3. Support all members of the Managed Service team in learning about their pain points and build systems to increase team efficiency.

  4. Liaise across internal functions (sales, operations, finance and technology) to cross-communicate feedback, develop systems that bridge each function, and constantly evolve the product to meet changing client needs.

  5. Collect, interpret and report key financial data to track the financial condition of the department.

Some of our biggest name customers are Motorola Solutions, Yelp, Uber, Sprout Social, Trunk Club, WeWork, Enova, Expedia, and Coyote Logistics!  From hot coffee to cold brew coffee, from kegs of craft beer to bottles of Bud Light, from LaCroix to Coke Zero, from coffee cups to plastic silverware, and from fully stocked office kitchens to poppin’ events and tastings, we offer a truly comprehensive product portfolio.

Your proficiencies:

  • Calm and collected in the line of fire. On a day where everything that could go wrong has gone wrong, you find a way to stay positive and promote that attitude within your team members

  • Passionate about growth.  We have a bright future ahead – which depends on our team’s spirit, morale, and work ethic.

What we offer:
