Account Manager

Tapcart makes launching a mobile shopping app easy, fun and attainable for every brand.
The world of shopping will one day be powered entirely by mobile, made possible by our products, team and vision.
We are inspired by the future of mobile. We work to inspire that future.
As the market leader in mobile Ecommerce, we focus on providing great experiences for our customers and for mobile shoppers worldwide. Our platform powers the mobile apps of some of the largest shopping brands, including Fashion Nova, Chubbies, The Hundreds and many more.
Tapcart is trusted by over 10,000 brands to launch and manage their mobile apps. We were recently featured at Google I/O, Shopify UNITE and in The Verge.
Recent research suggests that sitting within 25 feet of a high performer can boost performance. Now imagine sitting within five feet of an entire office of high performers, in a fun environment, and without the egos. Is that even possible? We’d like to think so!
Although we take pride in our work, the real secret to our success is hearing how our customers thrive beyond their initial expectations – not just their expectations of the technology but from our human-centered approach. Check out some of our recent five star reviews on Shopify:
"...customer service is amazing! They helped me with every issue I ran into and are very pleasant to work with!"
"Everyone is very helpful with the on-boarding process."
"Customer support is always super quick to respond. Thanks for the help, Tapcart!"
We’re able to deliver results like the ones above because we hire high-caliber talent, and the Customer Success team is no exception.
Customer Success is as much about taking care of our customers as it is about our team members. If you’re feeling valued and supported then it’s very likely our customers are, too.
The selected candidate would be joining a collaborative and insightful team while reporting to the Head of Customer Success.
We strive to not only focus on providing memorable experiences for our customers, but also for our customers’ customers – and we’d love for you to help us do so! Please read through the job description in detail and if after reading through our requirements, you feel you’d be a great addition to our team then we’d like to hear from you.
As an Account Manager, you’ll be responsible for on-boarding, setting expectations, and managing some of the world’s largest e-commerce brands. You’re proactive about regular check-ins, are able to identify areas to add value, strengthen the relationship, and be an ambassador for the Tapcart brand (in person, through email, and over the phone). As an early member of the Customer Success team in a fast growing startup, you’ll have a say in developing customer insights, on-boarding, and creating ways to provide memorable and meaningful experiences.
You’re on top of our client's concerns and, because you take ownership of your role, you already have a game plan for reaching out to your accounts before they reach out to you.
You have experience in implementing a structured account plan for every enterprise client. You visit local clients, help field technical questions, and conduct trainings as needed.
While up-selling is certainly a bonus, you’re not sacrificing the relationship of the account for the short-term sale.
Finally, we'd like your opinion on how you define account management. Please share your thoughts on the next page.
We offer competitive compensation & Taco Tuesday 🌮.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I first started at Tapcart when the team consisted of 4 people and I was brought on as the only designer. The mix of trust/responsibility paired with good vision/direction allowed me to learn more than I ever have in such a short time span. Top that with a work environment where we all learn from each other as well as have a great time together!
