Customer Success Manager

Stack Overflow is the leading destination site for all things developer. It is the go-to place for developers to ask and answer questions, and for employers to find the right technical talent and better understand the way developers work. With nearly 40 million monthly visitors and 10.2 million programming questions, Stack Overflow has unparalleled insights into how developers think, what matters to them and what gets them excited.

We are seeking a Customer Success Manager to work on Stack Overflow Talent, which aims to help great companies find great developers, and vice versa, through job listings and a searchable database of developer profiles.

One of the ways in which we do this is by ensuring that our clients will be as successful as possible, both by knowing how to use our products and how to communicate with the developers that make up their audience. This is where you come in: as a Customer Success Manager you will assist our sales team pre-sales with any product related questions and suggestions, and post sales you will visit our larger accounts to provide in person training and on boarding, and will monitor the usage (and to what success) of the products. You will be instrumental in ensuring our customers will be successful using our platform, and in doing so be their coach, first point of contact, and advocate. Your focus will be on the European market, and the position will be out of our London office. You will report to the Director of Customer Success.

What you’ll do:

  • Offer pre-sales support and aid sales crafting packages and solutions
  • Assist on sales calls
  • Be a technological resource to the Sales Representatives
  • Offer post-sales onboarding and training after initial order has been placed on an on-call basis when clients onboard new hires
  • Hold refresher courses as needed for clients
  • Monitor accounts, check and report on usage, and quality
  • Offer help and advice based on reports
  • Assist managing account
  • Keep your ears to the ground: you might hear and see things that the Sales Representative may not; then relay pertinent information back to sales rep
  • Work with marketing to create CS collateral
  • This job will require a fair amount of travel.

What you’ll need to have:

  • Experience training people, preferably on using web apps or software
  • In-depth experience using web applications
  • Genuine curiosity about technical concepts, and the ability to pick them up quickly and easily
  • Excellent command of written and spoken English
  • Ability to speak the language of technology, and the ability to teach our non-technical customers to understand this language
  • Friendliness, patience, diplomacy, and adaptability

It would be nice if you have:

  • Experience going on outside sales calls
  • Excellent command of written and spoken French
  • Understanding / interest in / use of talent.stackoverflow.com
  • Awareness and understanding of meta.stackexchange.com
  • Experience working in conjunction with software engineers in the workplace
  • Knowledge of the recruiting space and / or SAAS experience

What you’ll get in return:

  • Competitive Base Salary
  • Stock Option Plan
  • Great start-up office including a professional barista espresso machine, table-tennis table, games room, lunch area, etc.
  • Gym membership reimbursement (Up to £100 per month)
  • Free (awesomely delicious) catered lunch daily, as well as breakfast, fruit, drinks and snacks
  • State-of-the-art workstation with huge monitor, ergonomic chair and height-adjustable desks
  • A creative and fun environment where you are treated like an adult, and never poked with a sharp stick

Diverse teams build better products.
