We are hiring at DockMaster for a Customer Experience Manager to join our growing team, leading all post-sales functions, including User Operations (Support), Success, Services, Education, and Renewals.

We are looking for an experienced Customer Experience Manager to join our leadership team and champion the customer-centric culture at DockMaster.

DockMaster was acquired by Valsoft and now operates under Aspire Software, the operational arm of Valsoft Corp, which operates and manages Valsoft’s global portfolio of wholly owned software companies, providing mission-critical solutions across multiple verticals. By implementing industry best practices, Aspire delivers a time-sensitive integration process, and the operation of a decentralized model has allowed it to become a hub for creating rapid growth by reinvesting in its portfolio.
