Embedded Expert

Medallia’s mission is to help companies win through customer experience. The world’s best-loved brands trust Medallia’s Experience Cloud™, which embeds the pulse of the customer in an organization and empowers employees with the real-time customer data, insights, and tools they need to make every experience great. Named a leader in the most recent Forrester Wave and ranked in the 2018 Forbes Cloud 100 list, Medallia is growing quickly, with a global footprint that spans Silicon Valley, Austin, New York, Washington DC, London, Paris, Sydney, Buenos Aires, and Tel Aviv. Here, we value people for each of the aspects that make them whole. We believe that people should not be defined only by a job title—nobody is "just an engineer" or "just a salesperson." We are each partners, parents, children, siblings, friends, and former classmates. We have different backgrounds and we celebrate different cultures. And, just like our product, we honor each of the experiences that build our people.

At Medallia we hire the whole person, not just a part of them.

The Lead Embedded Expert (LEE) works with client and Medallia team members to understand client business objectives and design, prioritize, and implement CX solutions to help clients achieve those business objectives.  The LEE builds trusted advisor relationships with senior level clients, designs excellent CX solutions, and leads the Medallia team that implements and evolves Medallia’s products and services. The LEE is also accountable for turning a client into a raving Medallia fan and program profitability.

Internally across Medallia, the LEE proactively builds relationships and determines how to bring the best of what Medallia has to offer to our clients (e.g., New Product Adoption, Product Innovation, Research and Insights).  In addition, the LEE reactively resolves any and all client conflicts by escalating and driving a sense of urgency where and when necessary.
