Head of Account Services

San Francisco

Sköna is seeking a Head of Account Services with a kick-ass track record. As such, you’re not easily stressed. You’ve been in this business long enough to not let deadlines, clients or broken printers rattle your zen. You multitask with fervent energy. But most importantly, you love structuring teams and making other people the best version of themselves. You count your clients as your friends and you have earned their trust with your strategic guidance. You’re able to see the good in people (most of the time) and your experience means you have a natural gravitas, you’re the person who other people quiet down to hear what they have to say.
