Job Description CIC is looking for a highly capable, self-directed and experienced individual to manage a team that will be responsible for day-to-day operations. This will be a great opportunity for someone with at least five years of hands-on, managerial experience who enjoys working in a fast-paced and collaborative environment.

We look to every team member to collaborate and help each other by taking on any task big or small and having a "can do" attitude.
You will join our Community Team which is composed of several employees to satisfy the day-to-day needs of our clients. Some work will be independent while at other times it will require collaboration with other members of the CIC staff (in Japan and globally).

• Manage, coach and train team members of our Community Team; conduct timely performance evaluations and support their growth and professional development.
• Be aware of and responsible for the team’s workload, resources, morale, and training needs; advocate for the team’s needs with upper management.
• Master service-oriented tasks such as client moves, office setup, and IT troubleshooting; train team members on completing client requests and delegate appropriately.
• Research and implement new services, vendors, and community improvements..
• Maintain a constructive landlord-tenant relationship with building management.

• Coordinate budgets for daily operations as well as capital projects.
• Handle difficult client requests or encounters to maintain overall service quality and client satisfaction.
• Engage our clients through promoting and helping host community building events.
• Collaborate with other teams to complete projects and share knowledge.
In addition to helping our clients achieve great things, we work to ensure that our employees are healthy and supported. Some of the benefits of being here include:

☆ Fun people in a dynamic space. We pride ourselves on finding driven and bright collaborators who are eager to lend their own unique skills to the team, as well as to our inspiring clientele. The number one reason CIC’ers say they like working here is because of their colleagues!
☆ Personal growth. This is a great opportunity to learn and develop skills within the epicenter of the innovation community at a growing company.
☆ Access to amenities like a massage room, game room, and more!
☆ Access to Venture Cafe Tokyo, a weekly Thursday gathering involving high-impact programming designed to engage the broader entrepreneurial community.
