Who We Are:

Dusty Robotics develops robot-powered tools for the modern construction workforce.

While today's buildings are built predominantly with manual labor, Dusty envisions a future in which skilled labor makes use of robotic automation to make the work safer, more efficient, and more precise! We want to create a future where construction workers don't need to retire early because their bodies give out. In Dusty's future, the buildings we live and work in are built by teams of creative and problem-solving construction crews who direct robots to do the dull/dirty/dangerous work.

What We're Building:

Dusty bridges the gap between the digital world of building design with the skilled labor operating in the field, accelerating the digital transformation of the construction industry. The centerpiece of our strategy is the FieldPrinter: a mobile printer-on-wheels that prints building floorplans full-size on the concrete floor of a construction site. When errors in layout can cause multi-million-dollar mistakes, our product ensures that all field crews are building off of a single source of truth derived from the digital model.


The Position:

You have the opportunity to be part of the leadership team of a premier Customer Success organization being built from the ground up, within a fast-growing construction robotics company delivering a product that revolutionizes the construction process.

In this role, your mission is to create the Dusty Customer Experience, deliver it to our subscription customers, and to renew and expand our subscription revenue base. You will lead a dynamic team of Customer Success Managers (CSMs). Dusty’s CSMs are trusted advisors for our account portfolio of innovative construction companies, focused on enabling and growing our customers’ utilization of our FieldPrinter automated layout solution. You will facilitate account growth by identifying barriers to full utilization and removing those roadblocks from our customers’ workflows. Your efforts will increase revenue growth and accelerate Dusty’s expansion on construction projects across the US and around the world. Your success will depend on your understanding of our customers and their needs, fluency with our offering and how it can be used to create value for our customers, top-notch relationship building and collaboration skills, mentorship capabilities, and a drive to have the hard, nuanced conversations that will ultimately make our customers successful.

You will individually be responsible for a small number of accounts in order to remain close to the customer. In this capacity, you will work directly with our customers to ensure successful deployment of our technology and train clients in how to operate our products while identifying ways for them to increase utilization. You will lead regular customer success calls to gather feedback, proactively resolve problems, and suggest ways to increase adoption. You will visit your regional clients on their job sites.
