Job Description

Are you an enthusiastic, talented, and experienced Customer Success Manager (CSM) or software engineer with a passion for helping customers solve complex technical problems? Are you interested in the opportunity to accelerate our customer’s success with RTI technology? Do you want to have a hand in building a customer success team from the ground up?  If you love to work with customers and are passionate about helping them become successful, this is your role!

In this role, you will be responsible for developing customer relationships that promote retention, expansion, and loyalty to the RTI brand.  You’ll work closely with actively developing project teams to ensure they are delighted with the business value they realize by leveraging RTI technology.

If you have customer success in your DNA and a proven track record on your resume, come delight our global customers as they usher in the future!

While this role contributes to the overall growth of revenue at RTI, this is not a quota-carrying position.

    • Proactively engage the customer to build out training plans so they receive the mentoring and guidance they need.
  • Ensure customers can successfully adopt RTI technology
    • Conduct regular check-ins and reviews with customers to ensure their projects are on track and to ensure the successful adoption of RTI technology.
    • Monitor customers’ support activity to ensure there are no critical or blocking issues impeding their progress.
    • Convey customers’ product/service-related needs and wants to the rest of RTI, so that we take appropriate action to capitalize on all relevant opportunities.
    • Facilitate design reviews, data modeling discussions, and other technical “deep dives” that will help improve their designs.
    • Identify milestone blockers, and what keeps the project lead ‘up at night in order to proactively engage to accelerate ‘time-to-value’.
  • Help identify opportunities for cross- and upsell within existing customers
    • Work to identify up-sell and cross-sell opportunities for additional training, services, and company products.  
    • Once identified – provide information to Sales for further customer engagement and potential quote generation.
  • Assist in building out the customer success function at RTI
    • The CSM will work cross-functionally across all RTI departments focusing on increasing the customer health score and advocating for specific customer needs/issues.
    • Assist with the creation of playbooks and other assets needed to ensure we have a well-documented, scalable, and repeatable customer success engagement process leveraging the success plan methodology.
    • Recommend changes and additions to our customer success motion that keeps us aligned with industry best practices.
    • Assist in the planning and implementation of our future customer success technology stack (customer success software, survey platform, etc.).


  • Passion for customers and their success.
  • Technical degree with a minimum of 3-5+ years of experience in a post-sales, customer-facing role such as customer success, field application engineering, or customer support (experience as a customer success manager is a real plus!).
  • Experience in a quickly-scaling post-sales customer function (customer support/customer success/field engineering, etc.) is preferred.
  • Experience working with on-premise software.
  • Experience in autonomous devices, IoT/IIoT, or embedded systems preferred.
  • Excellent communicator is in-person, on the phone, through email, and through online presentations.
