The need...

We are seeking a creative, energetic and strategic individual like you to use your passion and talent to help World Changers bring their passion, purpose and mission to life! 

As the Custom Services Lead, you will lead the delivery of a variety of services our subscribers may need to make the most of the Givecloud platform.  These services will vary from content migration and website development to optimization audits and best-practice sharing.  We’ll be counting on you to engage our subscribers with energy and creative solutions.  Our subscribers will count on you for clear expectations, outstanding service, not to mention timeline, cost and project management.

You’ll flourish next to a team of dedicated professionals who are obsessed with helping nonprofits make the most of their resources, and who truly LOVE the people they serve.  You will also work closely with our equally professional and trusted network of subcontractors in order to scale your team as demand requires.

  • Is sufficiently strong in the technologies being used to be able to interact confidently with both customers and subcontractors.  This would include technologies such as html, css, and javascript.  
  • Experience with managing subcontractors, working together to deliver projects on-time and with the goal of exceeding customer expectations.


What you’ll do...

  • Lead the professional services program and be it’s representative with subscribers, partners and subcontractors.
  • Work with the CX leadership team, sales & marketing team to build assets that enable promotion and sales activities.
  • Work with subscribers to determine their business needs and requirements for creative solutions development.
  • Come up with creative ideas engaging internal and external stakeholders & present possible solutions to subscribers

  • Support the transition from custom hourly services to a structured offering with a menu of services designed to provide strong subscribers impact with predictable pricing.  
  • Support the creation and maintenance of a knowledge base consisting of implemented solutions, best practices, FAQs, and support documentation on services performed and issues experienced.
  • Position the services offering to scale along with the rest of Givecloud, and as a venue for learning about subscribers requirements and feeding those to our product team.
  • Provide frequent reports to senior leadership on program performance.
