Director of Community

Commsor is now looking for a Director of Community to join our Community team. As the Director of Community, you’ll be responsible for collaborating on the overall Community strategy (alongside our CCO) and then bringing it to life with our Community Manager, Community Events Manager, and Community Operations Manager (and plenty of other folks at Commsor, too!).


We’re a small and fully distributed team, currently spanning from California to Australia and we take pride in our ability to function as an effective remote organization. We currently have Commsaurians spread over 15 countries; would you be adding a new flag to the team?


The next 10 years will be dominated by community-led companies. But creating a successful community is often difficult and time consuming. Commsor helps companies and teams build better communities. We’re creating powerful tools including analytics, automation, a Community Network Manager (CNM), and more.

Most important to us at Commsor is that you possess the values we hold dear to us:

We put community first. Communities are the whole reason we exist so we care about them a lot. Seeing communities thrive is pretty much our favorite thing, so we center them in everything we do.

We keep it light. Lightweight, that is. There are no extra points for the most complex solution to a problem. We delight our customers (and ourselves) with iterative results in pursuit of maximizing impact while reducing wasted time, energy, or resources.

We embrace the hard stuff. We welcome change and challenges with a growth mindset and believe every hard thing is an opportunity to become better at what we do.

We own our outcomes. We’re entrepreneurial at heart and put an emphasis on individual responsibility and autonomy. Everyone contributes to our success.

We’re the real deal. Communities flourish when its’ members have an enjoyable and safe space to be their authentic selves. We ensure everyone is encouraged to respectfully speak their mind, challenge the status quo and bring the fun.


You’ll be reporting to Alex Angel, Commsor’s Chief Community Officer. You’ll be managing a team of three; our Community Manager, Community Events Manager, and Community Operations Manager. Frequent collaborators will be from Marketing, Content, C School, Services, Sales, Product, and Support/Success.
