The Crayon customer experience is one of our key differentiators and we are growing the team to take it to the next level. In this role, your true north will be to execute our strategic vision by enabling your team’s growth and success. You are a proven customer advocate with a wealth of experience to build on, a passion for learning, and a GSD attitude. You have thrived working with customers and helping them maximize their investment, and are ready to enable your team with that knowledge. You understand that CS is a team sport and know what it takes to collaborate internally and externally. Finally, you are ready to challenge the status quo and help bring Crayon’s CS org to the next level.

A little about the role:

  • You will work to execute the overall vision and strategic plan for our Customer Success organization, focusing on product adoption, expanding our user base, and driving positive net retention.
  • Your focus will be to develop, mentor, and coach each member of your team to help fuel their career growth. This looks like regular one-on-one meetings, strategy sessions, and building career paths for them to grow.
  • You will work cross-functionally with Sales, Marketing, and Product to ensure your team understands what our customers need and how we can be an essential driver of their company’s business strategy
  • Your success will be measured by your team’s ability to drive adoption of Crayon in our customer base, customer retention and expansion, and your ability to build and scale processes for your team to be effective.

  • You will help build an amazing customer experience for your team to deliver, including value-add quarterly business reviews, strategy workshops, CI program design sessions, and other customer-focused meetings. You will work with the team to constantly challenge the status quo to evolve these processes to deliver increasing value to our customers.

  • Get Stuff Done. You are motivated, dedicated, and love getting into the details. You actively embrace hard work and obsess about GSD for our customers
  • Experience. You have relevant management experience in Customer Success. This is likely 5+ years as a people manager in a Customer Success organization, but don’t let years of experience prevent you from telling us your unique career story
