Today we have a special guest. Brittany Fuller is the newest hire at LeadFuze as the new Customer Success Manager. Brittany came across the job posting on the BaseCamp job board for remote work. She wasn’t necessarily looking for something full time, but it piqued her interest and she filled out the application. She was surprised and excited to hear back so quickly.

Justin was impressed with her background and experience in a customer success role. She moved on to the next stage of the process and made it to a the screening call. Then a week later they did an hour long interview. Her impression of the hiring process was that it was extremely organized and well thought out. It was nice that Justin laid out the process and she was able to manage her expectations before getting started. The process seemed relatively short in terms of traditional hires.

Topics discussed include:

  • This was Brittany’s first time working on a remote team
  • Justin blocked out time to work one on one with her to help her hit the ground running

  • Justin is planning on giving his employees Kindles and book stipends as a benefit and way to grow and learn
  • Brittany had some experience with the software, but she wanted to spend time with the product so she would know the ins and outs
  • The process has been creative and they are putting in some pretty cool processes
  • The ultimate goal is for Brittany to be a user of the software and be well educated on outbound sequences and the use of the product
  • Brittany is excited about growing the business
  • As a CEO, Justin could invest a little more in the online chat agents and create some processes and measures for success
