Delivery Manager

Original Shift delivers great service and exceeds customer expectations implementing Salesforce CPQ & Billing. Our customers depend on us to deliver the guidance they need, not just what they want to hear. Original Shift experts can identify the optimal combination of features and best practices to produce high quality build work. Providing the right solutions to solve difficult business problems is at the heart of our company’s drive to achieve unparalleled customer success.

As a Delivery Manager, you are a customer-centric, strategic thinker with the ability to drive the successful delivery of projects  by building and guiding a team of talented consultants.  You are able to leverage your experience in business process transformation, customer management, and engagement strategy to manage a wide variety of customers’ Salesforce CPQ & Billing projects.  As a former consultant, you know implementations can get tricky and that it’s critical to support and collaborate with the project teams on the ground.  Sometimes this means delivering tough messages…internally & externally.  You lead by example demonstrating to your team how to raise and field escalations with professionalism and focus on the optimal outcome. You’re passionate about delivering quality projects and closely monitor the portfolio to meet that outcome.

As a key member of the leadership team, you are working with internal teams to improve processes, tools, and material assets to make customer interactions more efficient and effective as the business grows. You gather feedback from customers about our strengths, challenges, and opportunities, and champion that feedback to internal teams and leaders. Through your experience and industry wisdom, you continually work towards finding repeatable and scalable ways to ensure we continually deliver to the highest benchmarks of service efficacy and quality. Customers respect and trust you for your ability to simply communicate complex ideas, ask thoughtful questions, listen to various perspectives, and prescribe the most ideal course of action. Project teams view you as an energetic and successful people manager capable of getting the hardest “stuff” done. Leadership appreciates your ability to grow recurring customer relationships that foster long-term revenue streams.

If you’re passionate about quality delivery within the Quote to Cash space, enjoy cultivating and monetizing long-lasting customer and partner relationships, as well as leading strategic CPQ and Billing initiatives across the Salesforce ecosystem, we would really like to speak with you.
