About Terminal49

We’re Building the Most Comprehensive Ocean Freight Visibility Platform

Today, nine out of ten shipping and container managers still manually track shipments across carrier and terminal websites, then copy and paste data into spreadsheets. Rinse and repeat.

We provide real-time tracking API's and powerful, intuitive dashboards—helping them automate their workflows, save time, and save money.

Our software and APIs are used by logistics tech startups, logistics service providers (such as freight forwarders and customs brokers), trucking companies, cargo owners, and shippers.

Who You Are

We’re seeking a seasoned Customer Success Leader who is excited to define strategy and implement best practices in a new context.

The Starting Line

You’ll take over CS from Namita, our Head of Ops, with support from Ops Analyst, Fred. Our customer base includes both SMBs and enterprise conglomerates. Last quarter, we grew that base by over 25%. Our YoY customer retention is 96%, and new accounts are consistently brought in by positive word of mouth.

We’re preparing for growth stage, which means evolving.

We recently conducted our first NPS survey, mapped out new support workflows, and implemented a structured support rotation with the engineering team. Right now, we’re diving into those responses to conduct user interviews, refining our customer onboarding process, and measuring the effectiveness of these new approaches.

Your Day to Day

You’ll develop and lead our next phase of customer success. While we’re excited to share our learnings and vision, we’re more excited to hear yours. This description is intentionally open ended. You’re the expert. That’s why we’re psyched to have you on our team.

Since these are still early days, we are looking for a leader who can execute—not just delegate. You’ll bring an organized and high level view to the table but you’ll also be pretty hands-on. You see time in the trenches as an an invaluable source of insight and connection with both our market and team.
