We also expect you to have experience planning and running user conferences both in-person and online, including experience with tools like Powerpoint, Slack, Zendesk, and online webinar software.

You are comfortable with conflict because conflict provides an opportunity to help solve problems.
  • Enthusiastic collaborators. You understand that the best outcomes are achieved through shared ownership, and you seek to spread knowledge and expand participation rather than restrict it. You need to work cross-functionally to achieve successful outcomes for your team and customers. You’ll also serve as a company ambassador for customer success since fulfilling customer outcomes is a shared responsibility.
  • Ultimate team player You focus more on team and customer success than personal achievements. You understand that each team within the Deployments team works hand-in-hand to provide the best customer experience possible and you might have to pitch in to help other team members.
  • Comfortable with ambiguity. You know that sometimes problems and situations can’t be simplified or fully understood; you know where to find information to help bring clarity to a situation, but you also understand that you won’t always have all the information when making decisions. You invite change and help your team and customers navigate change. 

Our team is located in our New York, however, we are open to new teammates who work in a remote capacity.
