Headquarters: Portland, OR
At Customer.io our mission is to help business talk like people. Today over 1200 internet businesses use Customer.io to manage, send, and track performance of email, SMSes and push notifications. Unlike typical marketing platforms, Customer.io helps business increase relevance by using behavior data: what people do or don’t do when logged in to a web or mobile app.
What will you be doing here?
For a long time, our technical support and sales teams were informally helping our customers be successful in the product, often spending a lot of time working with customers to plan their integration and campaigns in Customer.io.
As a Customer Success Manager, you’ll act as the project manager for the successful onboarding of the account. Tasked with getting general or strategic questions answered for new customers you’ll collaborate with technical support, sales, and engineering (when appropriate).
We don’t need you to be an expert at marketing - but rather an expert at getting questions answered and influencing the customer to make progress and move through blockers. You won't necessarily be a "data expert" but will be keen to get a good understanding or our app so that you can take a use case and leverage our features to make your customer successful.
Day to day, you’ll be working with our customers who opt into an onboarding plan with us. This will include things like:
- Transition calls with sales/CS/key stakeholders to outline the general onboarding plan and timetable
- Conversations with customers to unearth reasons why messaging matters to them and help them plan, implement and follow through with their messaging goals
- Planning and organization of the data customers will send to their Customer.io account, and how they’ll use it to power effective campaigns and newsletters
- Being your customer’s first point of contact to provide them with dedicated support and initial troubleshooting. We don’t expect you to know all of the answers, but you will gather information and help from TS, Product, and Engineering to solve problems.
- Following up with customers ~1x/quarter after the onboarding process is complete
- You’re curious and enjoy learning about different businesses and industries.
- You’ve got a thirst for knowledge, and are keen to get a good understanding of our app.
- Creative problem solver who can understand the customer problem and find the best solution regardless of what the customer is asking for.
- We often find ourselves in situations like this: A customer has done a wonky data integration with Customer.io. hey want to create a complex, time-sensitive campaign but their engineers are unavailable to make the data easier to use. How do you help them?
- You’re calm under stress and not easily rattled.
- You enjoy solving problems independently, but aren’t afraid to ask for help or collaboration when you need to.

- You have a background in SaaS
