Customer Success Manager US

Job description

We are looking for an experienced Customer Success Manager in NYC, who is interested to build long-term relationships with businesses and help our customers use software to achieve their strategic business communications.

At Happeo, Customer Success Managers are the trusted Business Communications advisors for each of our customers. They have an intimate understanding of how their businesses work and what the businesses need to grow and thrive.

Who we are
We’re Happeo - a team of passionate problem-solvers, working hard to build and provide the best social intranet out there. We managed to secure our Series-A funding right in the middle of a pandemic. That’s right, that’s how good our product is. It’s our dream to make work a happier place by bringing people together through a happy digital culture. Turns out a digital culture is especially desirable during pandemics. Happeo's talent is spread across locations, generations, and time zones, helping Happeo's continued growth of 280% year on year.

Who are you?

As a CSM, you will be responsible for managing around 50 customer relationships. Some of your customers will be new while others may have been using Happeo for several years. You will work with your customers on a regular basis to understand their desired outcomes and success gaps and align them with the necessary resources to achieve them. You will also handle up-sell and renewals yourself.

In working with your customers, you will find that no two of them are the same. In the morning, you could be working with the Head of Internal Comms at a software unicorn currently going through a merger. In the afternoon, you could be talking to the Head of Employee Engagement of a global Fortune 500 company about how to communicate a new strategic initiative to all employees across the globe.

Your day-to-day is a mix of proactive and reactive work. The proactive work includes 4-5 scheduled deep-dive meetings per day with customers, where you review their progress, make strategic and tactical recommendations, and keep them up to date on the latest and greatest features from Happeo. The reactive work runs the gamut from questions about invoices to “how to” questions about the software.
