Client Service Manager

Job description


We are 5CA. We work with well-known companies in the technology industry to optimize their customer experience (CX). We have done so for the past 20 years and use our experience and best practices to consult with our clients and help execute their CX & support strategy.  


We’re mostly focused on three industries, being video games, consumer electronics and eCommerce. While contact center services are our core business, we’re developing into a strategic advisor when it comes to customer experience and application of technology in the contact center environment.  


For our contact center services we use a mix of onsite and remote agents. A highly flexible and dynamic model, which ensures that we can provide our clients with the right foundation to deal with challenging situations. We provide omnichannel support in a wide variety of languages, always using the latest technological innovations like Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning).

We’re headquartered in Utrecht, The Netherlands, with offices in Los Angeles, USA, and Buenos Aires, Argentina. 5CA offers a fast-paced, dynamic workplace where every day is different and developments take place over the course of days, not months. 5CA’s culture is shaped by a young and talented workforce hailing from all corners of the globe with a thirst for new and exciting technology and games as the binding factor. The 5CA workforce is a community of gamers, techies, and geeks. 5CA has a flat hierarchy and every team member is encouraged to bring out the best in themselves and act beyond the scope of their job description.



You’re an outgoing, commercially-oriented person, with experience in both account management and new business. You have a strong affinity with technology and video games.
