About Differential

Differential is growing! Yep, it turns out clients like us :) Our team of designers, developers, jokesters, and all around good folk needs more firepower. We’re proudly headquartered in Cincinnati, OH, but our team spans across the country.

In addition to only choosing the best group of people to work around, we are also very picky about the types of clients we’ll work with. In line with our mission to rapidly unlock value for good people with meaningful ideas, we partner with forward-thinking corporate pioneers and innovators to revolutionize their organizations from the inside out and bring great digital products to life. This translates to a diverse range of products like transforming retail with Adidas, helping Lexmark innovate cross-industry, streamlining the sales process with Big Ass Fans, to multi-platform mobile apps for large audiences with Crossroads Church.

We hire great, trustworthy people so that we can optimize for a free & flexible culture: flexible hours, unlimited vacation, remote work, and working on stuff you’re excited about.

Job Description

We are looking for someone to join a growing team of people who are proactive and passionate about making their customers successful. This person loves working with customers, guiding them, answering questions, and building great relationships with rapport and credibility. You’ll lead product adoption, managing both client and internal resources. You’ll work closely with other Client Success team members to ensure our clients are successful long-term, and be a client’s main point of contact for strategic expertise.


You will focus on our Apollos line of business, a technology and content platform for the Church that equips people to develop healthy spiritual habits and stay better connected to their church community digitally. You will become an expert in guiding technology and strategy that impact churches all over with hundreds of thousands of followers using our products.


At Differential, we design, develop, support, and commercialize great digital products. Our process aims to create original digital products and services that innovate and reshape companies and organizations.

Above all, we are focused on finding someone that we love to work with. Culture to us isn’t a ping pong table in the breakroom or some words we put up on the wall. It’s embedded in our DNA and starts with our hiring process. Regardless of your prior experience, we want to consider passionate people for this position.
