Customer Service, Sales & Business Development
Mountain View, CA, USA

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 create a world-class customer success organization from the ground up, within a fast-growing construction robotics company delivering a product that revolutionizes the construction process.

In this role, you will apply your knowledge of Customer Success strategies to transform a team of customer success professionals into a well-oiled machine that increases client utilization of our transformative product. You will create the playbooks and strategies that enable customers to adopt Dusty successfully across their organizations and digitize their construction processes. Your efforts will increase our revenue growth and accelerate Dusty’s expansion on construction projects across the US and around the world. Your success will depend on market expertise, expert leadership in software+hardware+services, impeccable business acumen, and the creation of a repeatable value-delivery engine that feels tailored to each customer.

As the VP of Customer Success, you will be interacting directly with our customers to ensure successful deployment of our technology. You will work closely with other Dusty leaders to steer the business towards higher value creation and increased revenue potential. You will be a thoughtful listener, and fierce advocate for our customer base, funneling this knowledge into our product planning process. By helping us delight and retain our users, you will have the unique opportunity to improve productivity and efficiency across one of the largest sectors in the global economy: construction.

This role will report to the CEO, and play a pivotal role in creating a world-class Customer Success organization.
