Our Company

Teradata is the connected multi-cloud data platform for an enterprise analytics company. Our enterprise analytics solve business challenges from start to scale. Only Teradata gives you the flexibility to handle the massive and mixed data workloads of the future, today.

The Teradata Vantage architecture is cloud-native, delivered as-a-service, and built on an open ecosystem. These design features make Vantage the ideal platform to optimize price performance in a multi-cloud environment.

The Director of Customer Success Platform & Tools plays a crucial role in driving value for Teradata’s customers through the delivery of scalable and efficient tools/processes to support the Global Customer Success organization.
The Director of Customer Success Platform & Tools reports to the Vice President of the Global Customer Services Center of Excellence and has a global responsibility.
This role requires extensive knowledge, experience, and skills with not only the Customer Success function and operations, but also in areas such as system/application architecture, data modeling, data integration, software development, dashboards/reporting, and project management.

You will collaborate with cross-functional stakeholders and business teams to develop globally standardized customer success processes and craft these into associated business requirements. The business requirements will then be translated into technical designs for implementation into the Customer Success Platform and integrated systems such as Salesforce, ServiceNow, and Teradata’s Transcend enterprise data warehouse.
Once the Customer Success platform is deployed you will be responsible for the initial user onboarding and ongoing enablement of the Customer Success team to provide training, best practices, and support to ensure a high level of adoption and value realization of the platform. Beyond the Customer Success Platform, you will also act as a subject matter expert for additional processes and tools that are used by the Customer Success organization – this includes but is not limited to, processes and tools related to ServiceNow, Salesforce, Business Objects, Qualtrics, and Transcend. To ensure that the Customer Success team has access to business intelligence and reporting, this role will work closely with the Data Analytics and Reporting team to identify and consolidate Customer Success dashboards and reports using PowerBI and/or the Customer Success platform.  You are a good communicator, with an ability to see both the widescreen and the close-up of how technology provides solutions and opportunities for our Customer Success team, and be comfortable and confident that you can deliver the best possible solutions for the team.

• Keep up-to-date and be an active member of the chosen platform’s User Community, including sharing best practices and attending continuous learning, both virtually and by attending industry conferences and seminars

What skills are needed for ideal candidates
