Director, Customer Success - OTTO/Clearpath

Does mentoring & coaching excite you? Are you ready to build a world-class Customer Success team for the current AND future state of a high-growth scale up?


Founded in 2009, Clearpath Robotics started in a basement by four friends who loved building robots. After persisting, failing, iterating and finally succeeding on the build of their first unmanned vehicle, Clearpath Robotics was born out of a desire to make robotics research much easier.

As the company developed, Clearpath got into advanced automation and created OTTO Motors. OTTO Motors creates self-driving robots for the manufacturing industry. They deal with very unique tech that is on the cutting edge of technical capability.

2020 was a pivotal year for growth - OTTO’s products went from being a “nice to have” for their clients to a “must-have”, becoming mission critical in the material movement industry. With the increase in adoption, has come a higher need for product reliability (and for product support when things aren’t working quite like they should). The challenge now is to create a consistent customer experience and have someone represent the voice of the customer  - to provide input into every core product, implementation, marketing, and sales process.

Does this sound exciting to you?
