Amplitude is looking for someone who wants to tackle the challenge of educating our customers and partners at scale. The primary focus areas for this role are building out the Amplitude Academy from the ground up and up-leveling our Help Center documentation and videos. We’re looking to build a world where any person can come to our education portal and learn not only how our product works or how to integrate it into their workflows, but also learn about the newest thought leadership and best practices to ultimately help them build a better product. If we are successful with these initiatives, we will see a rise in our primary adoption metric - Weekly Learning Users - as well as other key metrics such as querying users, support ticket deflection, renewal rates, expansion opportunities, and brand awareness. Academy and Help Center are just the building blocks -- in the future we’d love to explore extending the reach of Customer Education to initiatives like running an Amplitude Community and Training & Education Services.

As the leader of this function you will be part of the Customer Success Leadership Team and will have a voice in how we operate and evolve to meet the needs of our growing business and customers. You’ll have the opportunity to share your opinions, your experience, and your ideas to help build the customer success organization. Within Education, you’ll be responsible for building and managing a team to help drive towards the mission of helping customers learn. We want Amplitude to be a great place to work and your role as a leader, coach, and mentor will be imperative to making this happen. If you’re looking for an opportunity to have a high level of ownership, build something from the ground up, and be a leader at this company, this is the right opportunity for you.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?

You are considered to have a disability if you have a physical or mental impairment or medical condition that substantially limits a major life activity, or if you have a history or record of such an impairment or medical condition.

  • Blindness
  • Deafness

Reasonable Accommodation Notice

Federal law requires employers to provide reasonable accommodation to qualified individuals with disabilities. Please tell us if you require a reasonable accommodation to apply for a job or to perform your job. Examples of reasonable accommodation include making a change to the application process or work procedures, providing documents in an alternate format, using a sign language interpreter, or using specialized equipment.
