What you’ll do day to day:

  • Work closely and in full collaboration with stakeholders within Customer Success, Customer Marketing, Product, and Sales 
  • Leverage deep product knowledge to lead technical aspects of our programs

  • Experience in a SaaS ecosystem preferred
  • Data-driven and analytical mindset to analyze customer usage patterns, distill insights, and determine the ideal content for email campaigns, Help Center articles, webinars, and other at-scale content. 
  • Systems thinking skills to understand how multiple internal technologies and external customer touch points work together, fit together, and potentially interfere with one another as we build great customer experiences
  • Excellent communication skills (both written and verbal), able to explain technical issues and features to non-technical audiences in order to drive user adoption (Writing sample may be requested).
  • Be a self-starter who steps up to handle new opportunities and tough challenges with a sense of urgency, high energy, and enthusiasm
