Technical Account Manager
Want to empower digital business through real-time analytics delivered as a service? Passionate about putting the power of machine data analytics in the hands of everyone by unifying all data types, enabling universal access and leveraging cloud economics – all this from a single, unified platform delivered and consumed as a service? Come talk with us!
As a Technical Account Manager, you will be responsible for working with and guiding Sumo Logic’s strategic customers toward successful adoption of the service. You will partner very closely with our Customer Success Managers to develop deep customer relationships with a set of premium accounts. You will provide technical guidance, best practices, mentorship and training to your customers, assisting them to drive maximum value out of Sumo Logic and understanding a vision for long term success and growth. You will be the main point of contact for all technical questions and assistance for these customers and represent their needs back to customer support, product management, engineering, and sales.
