Leverage Your Strong Technical and Consultative Skills to Build Critical Partnerships with OEMs and Own Opportunities from Soup to Nuts

Our Differentiators: Highest NPS® Scores; Large, Talented Development Team; Seamless Integration; and More

Plenty of Account Executives can serve as a consultant, but you have the strategic mindset and technical knowledge to support and educate clients and position yourself as a valued partner. If so, this position offers you several compelling opportunities:
  • You will join a small company that has made a big impact in the automotive industry by consistently delighting high-level executives at OEMs and dealerships -- our Net Promoter Scores (NPS®) are significantly higher than any other provider of service lane technology.
  • You'll take on a book of business that includes a mix of established and emerging accounts, providing you with diverse challenges. Our clients include BMW, Mercedes Benz, Porsche and other universally known brands.
  • We think of ourselves as a "mini Google" in the automotive space, with a large development team, a passion for introducing disruptive solutions, and a track record of delivering well-considered solutions.
  • We differentiate ourselves by doing things that simply make sense for our customers, such as integrating seamlessly with OEMs' IT systems. When we get to the pilot stage, we tend to hit a home run, and your keen attention to detail will help us exceed expectations.
  • Our unique culture values risk-takers who aren't afraid to break the rules, challenge the status quo and continuously seek improvements. At myKaarma, you will have the freedom and opportunity to make an impact, own your responsibilities and make suggestions. The organization has strong intellectual horsepower, decentralized decision-making and a flat structure.
Challenging the status quo is part of our DNA. At myKaarma we have a vision: We want to dominate the customer interaction management landscape in the transportation industry worldwide. Like all tall targets, we have started by trying to prove this model in automotive retail in the US and Canada. Our solutions provide communications, payments, scheduling, video, pickup and delivery, and mobile service to enhance the service experience for vehicle owners.
