Who is Fergus

We’re building the world’s most loved SaaS platform for Tradies. Our intuitive cloud-based job management software is helping tradespeople across the globe manage their business in a smarter, more efficient way. From site visits through to scheduling, quoting, invoicing, and much more - Fergus arranges all tasks in one place and gives our customers the insight they need to grow their business.

Founded in 2014 as the brainchild of Dan Pollard, a veteran Tradie, who spent many years deep in the trenches. Eventually burning out and going bust, Dan realised that a trades business needs proper systems in place to keep it running … without running its owner into the ground.

We’re a Series B ($15m) global B2B SaaS business with offices in New Zealand (HQ), Australia and now a rapidly scaling team in Manchester, UK.

The opportunity:

As a customer-centric SaaS company, our success is directly related to the reputation our product has with our valued customers. We’re now looking for a hands-on Customer Success Team Lead (UK) who will manage the entire post-sales relationship from on-boarding, training, retention, advocacy and upselling. They’ll also be responsible for the mentoring, training and development of our first-class CS team here in Manchester.

  • You’ll be providing customer insight on product improvements - everything from new feature inputs to feedback on our latest marketing campaigns.
  • You’ll be supporting, mentoring, coaching and training our current Customer Success Specialist - ensuring that the team is providing exceptional customer experience.
  • You’ll also be managing the setup and configuration of our software for new customers via remote training sessions online, solving challenges as they arise.
  • Strong commercial experience as a CS Team Lead or Senior CS, within a customer-centric SaaS environment (ideally SMB segment).
  • A passion for and successful commercial experience delivering a first-class customer onboarding experience.
  • Great verbal and written communication skills - you must be able to articulate important messages in a concise way.
  • Experience working with large number of customers (1:many) would be ideal
