  • Run education and adoption campaigns to help educate our platforms and their users on our product
  • Ongoing evaluation, ideation and implementation of strategies to improve the platform experience from onboarding to renewal

  • Demonstrated history of hiring and leading exceptional talent, ideally a customer success team
  • Demonstrated ability to manage ambiguity, take initiative, and problem-solve
  • Effectively work cross-functionally and with a wide range of people with different skill sets
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills
