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.  You will also work with the rest of the Customer Success team to build out and cultivate a customer community to enhance the experience of our customers.

The successful candidate for this job will have a strong technical aptitude in cloud technologies like AWS or Microsoft Azure, along with a strong self-starting, proactive mentality.  You must have a proven track record of creating and maintaining deep, lasting relationships with customers.

You are going to be dealing with very technical users and complex issues, but you’re also tasked with creating excitement and loyalty in the customers you interact with.  This is an ideal role for technical, experienced sales engineers looking to get away from full-time travel requirements or experienced Professional Services consultants looking for a chance to focus on a set of strategic accounts they can help to grow.

  • Stay actively engaged on assigned customers to ensure great customer health
  • Participate in customer community forums
  • Partner with senior Sumo Logic Customer Success Managers to ensure customers are renewing and expanding their accounts
  • Represent customer needs internally with our product management and engineering teams

Your experience and skills should include:

  • A track record of having a bias for action to make things happen and drive results
  • Experience with public cloud services such as AWS or Microsoft Azure
  • Ability to write scripts, regular expressions, SQL queries, etc.
  • Hands-on experience working with a variety of enterprise software infrastructure (operating systems, virtualization, database, network, security) products in production environments
  • Eight years or more experience working as a professional services consultant, customer success engineer, technical account manager, Solutions Architect or sales engineer
  • Customer relationship management skills
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills
  • The ability to travel occasionally to customer sites
  • The ability to thrive in a fast-paced, high growth and rapidly changing environment

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past. For more information about this form or the equal employment obligations of federal contractors under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
