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 major brands like 3M, Autodesk, and CA, as well as innovative younger companies like BloomReach, ExtraHop, and Usermind.

We believe the traditional agency model is fundamentally broken. Clients don't need dedicated creative agencies anymore—they've developed their own strategy and just need high-quality design to bring it to life, quickly and efficiently.

And that's what Lightboard does.
