At Segment, we believe companies should be able to send their data wherever they want, whenever they want, with no fuss. Unfortunately, most product managers, analysts, and marketers spend too much time searching for the data they need, while engineers are stuck integrating the tools they want to use. Segment standardizes and streamlines data infrastructure with a single platform that collects, unifies, and sends data to hundreds of business tools with the flip of a switch. That way, our customers can focus on building amazing products and personalized messages for their customers, letting us take care of the complexities of processing their customer data reliably at scale. We’re in the running to power the entire customer data ecosystem, and we need the best people to take the market. 
We’re looking for someone to define and own customer eduction at Segment. This person will be responsible for providing educational content to all of Segment’s users to help them understand the Segment product and how to use it better. The Customer Education Programs Manager is a part of the Customer Education and Operations team, which supports the Success team in ensuring Segment’s customers get value from Segment’s products. 
This is a multifaceted role that tackles all things customer education.  You’ll set the strategy for Segment’s customer education practice, build and manage the operations required for a top-notch customer education program, and support subject matter experts (or become one) in the areas we are trying to inform our customers about.

Such a large scope requires exceptional prioritization and project management skills, as well as creativity to get stuff done. Expect to work cross functionally with all of Success, including our Customer Success Managers, Solution Architects and Success Engineers, as well as Product, Documentation and Marketing to get the right content to the right people.
