Renewals Specialist - EMEA and Global Partners


As a part of the Sumo Logic Customer Success team, you will be responsible for achieving timely renewals for our EMEA customers and partner-owned accounts in the high-volume segment. Following a low-touch model, you will coordinate both automated outreach and direct interactions with our customer champions and procurement teams. You will also work alongside a Customer Success Engineer to drive successful adoption prior to and after the point of renewal, but doing it in a manner that scales for volume. 

This is a quota-carrying role. 

A successful candidate for this job will have good customer-facing skills, have an understanding of the subscription economy, and have a self-starting, proactive mentality given the number of accounts that will be assigned to you. You will be drafting and managing purchase agreements so being detail-oriented is an important trait. You should also be comfortable talking about commercial terms and can delicately navigate customer objections and demands. 

This is an ideal position for someone who has a working knowledge of cloud technology, has already been in a SaaS renewal role in the past or is looking to move from an internal operations role to something more customer-facing.

  • Ability to discuss and close multi-year deals
  • Handle billing disputes and questions
  • Ensure that renewal conversations start a few months before renewal dates
  • Work seamlessly with members outside of customer success: Account Executives, Partner Managers, Finance, Order Management, and Deal Desk
  • Will learn to use Sumo Logic’s basic features and understand the Go-to-Market message
  • Identify when technical guidance might be needed to secure a renewal



  • 2+ years of experience in either a customer success, sales, or renewals SaaS role
  • A college/university degree
  • Excellent English communication skills (written and verbal)
  • Familiarity with SFDC and Clari and the reporting features it offers
