Job Details

Full Time
$75,000.00 - $100,000.00 Salary



Death – though heart-wrenching – can be beautiful. Its rituals can be meaningful, and the disposition of the body can be natural.


Recompose is a company that owns and operates green funeral homes specializing in the service of natural organic reduction (NOR), where human bodies are converted into soil (aka “human composting”). The Recompose model offers an authentic, participatory experience for families and a natural return to the earth for the dead. Recompose is transforming the funeral industry and creating deep ecological change. We are looking to hire people who are motivated to help us create a new death care paradigm and heal the environment through this work.


We are seeking a Precompose and Client Support Manager to manage Recompose’s direct customer service team and maintain and grow Precompose, our prearrangement program. They will be responsible for building and maintaining new and existing customer relationships. They will also maintain customer data, identify areas for improvement, and help build a foundation for Recompose customer services standards as we expand. The Precompose and Client Support Manager will frequently communicate Recompose’s process and mission and must be able to speak about death in a straightforward and gentle manner.


Precompose, our prepayment plan, secures future customers for Recompose. The Precompose and Client Support Manager will be tasked with growing Precompose. They will lead this growth guided by Recompose values, including approachability, clarity of communication, and a commitment never to upsell or pressure a client into a purchase.


The Precompose and Client Support Manager will report to the Director of Client Experience and manage a team of Precompose and Client Support Specialists to ensure that our customers receive consistent, straightforward information through well-managed Recompose systems.

Recompose lives by the framework “Inform, Comfort, Inspire.” The Precompose and Client Support Manager will use these concepts to guide all of customer service at Recompose.
