We are looking for an enthusiastic and client-driven Customer Success Director with strong project-delivery, customer-engagement, and problem-solving skills. The individual is expected to lead a team and function dedicated to onboarding new customers and enabling existing customers to get the maximum benefit from Fabriq OS – our market-leading and planet-improving web-based SaaS platform! This is for a full-time opening based in London.

Get in touch if collaborating with customers to help them succeed is in your DNA and you want to work in an environment where the worlds of energy, sustainability, smart buildings, tech, and start-ups converge!

About Fabriq

Fabriq offers an award-winning IoT platform called Fabriq OS, which is capable of capturing and organising the entire range of energy, resource and environmental data in the built environment. Fabriq’s mission is to help increase the value of real-estate assets and optimise the utilisation of buildings by providing end-to-end intelligence on how buildings and spaces are running to a multitude of stakeholders who invest in, own, run, or occupy buildings.

Our customers include large organisations in the commercial-building industry such as real-estate investors, service providers (e.g. facility management companies, managing agents and specialised consultancies), and, last but not least, tenants and occupiers of commercial buildings in a variety of industries. We have thousands of buildings in our database, spanning almost every type of asset from apartments to warehouses.

About the role

At Fabriq, we deal with a lot of data in various forms - from manually-entered data that can be inputted via a mobile App or an Excel template to data from meters or IoT sensors that can be imported on an automated basis. We often work with customers that operate large multi-use and multi-tenant buildings (think large offices, retail centres, and international airports). Our objective is to gain as detailed as possible of an understanding of any building’s setup and operations in order to uncover insights on how a building and its spaces can run in more optimised ways. The ultimate aim is to help our customers minimise their consumption of resources, carbon footprints, as well as running costs and at the same time increase the operational efficiency and productivity of spaces that they use or are responsible for operating.

The focus of this role is to ensure continued leadership within Fabriq’s customer-success function, which is ultimately dedicated to the effective delivery of Fabriq’s SaaS solutions to end users. This is key, as Fabriq continues to grow its customer base and requirements of Fabriq-powered solutions become more complex as Fabriq continues to explore new and exciting use cases alongside like-minded end users.

We’re looking for someone with experience handling large and complex enterprise-SaaS projects within fast-paced, technical, and customer-focused environments. The individual in this role should be able to lead projects from an end-to-end perspective from the point when a customer is signed on to the point when a customer is expected to be trained on getting the most value out of a Fabriq solution on a day-to-day basis. In addition, we are looking for someone who has the capacity to think strategically as well and to implement best practices to continually improve the operational aspects of Fabriq’s customer-success function.
