About you

  • At least 3-4 years of hands-on Customer Success experience, ideally within a startup or the SaaS industry.
  • Demonstrated ownership and accountability, driving projects to completion with minimal oversight including conflict resolution, improving customer retention, onboarding customers, reducing churn, and enhancing customer experience.
  • Exceptional problem-solving skills, capable of quickly understanding and applying new compliance knowledge (e.g., ISO 27001) and assisting customers with technical API documentation.
  • Proven leadership in scaling CS teams, inspiring and mentoring junior members, and building processes to scale a remote CS team from Seed to Series A+.
  • Deep customer obsession, putting the customer at the center of all activities and advocating for them internally – ensuring their voice is heard in product development and company strategy.
  • You’re all about getting your point across clearly and concisely to clients and your team. You keep things simple, organized, and everyone on the same page using tools like tools like Slack, Notion, Clickup and Gather.
  • You love finding ways to make life easier by automating CS processes like setting up a CRM system from scratch. You are able to learn new technologies fast. If there’s a quicker, smarter way to do it, you’re on it – bonus points if you’re a Zapier whiz or know how to code.
