Senior Customer Success Manager

Our Customer Success team advises and guides a wide variety of customers, ensuring they launch Slack successfully, adopt it widely and are continually driving business value from Slack.

Senior CSMs are entrusted with some of Slack’s largest and most strategic customers, working with stakeholders across all parts of the business and at all levels (including the C-suite), to drive increased adoption of Slack and to improve the overall quality and maturity of its use.

A major area of responsibility for Senior CSM’s is helping customers structure and manage company wide Slack deployments, coaching the customer’s project team on Slack’s deployment methodology, and helping them to develop an appropriate change management strategy that maximizes adoption, self sufficiency and business value.

Working closely with Slack’s Account Executives and Solutions Engineers, Senior CSMs also structure and run proof of concepts with prospective customers, identifying, developing and launching key business uses with success criteria that demonstrate the value of Slack.

Our Senior CSMs also play a central role in developing the Customer Success practice, assets and methods, including mentoring and coaching newer CSMs and representing Slack with external thought leadership.

Part coach, project manager, business consultant and product expert, our Senior Customer Success Managers are continually focused on helping some Slack’s largest customers improve their team communication and to be successful with Slack.
