Contentful: a developer-friendly, API first CMS


Contentful provides content infrastructure for digital teams to power websites, apps, and devices. Unlike a CMS, Contentful was built to integrate with the modern software stack. It offers a central hub for structured content, powerful management and delivery APIs, and a customizable web app that enables developers and content creators to ship their products faster. Companies like Spotify, Red Bull, Optimizely, Twilio, and Urban Outfitters rely on Contentful to solve the complexities of content management in the modern multi-channel world.

The demand for a new way to manage content is in the numbers: the company is rapidly growing and has raised nearly $50M from VC firms including General Catalyst, Benchmark, Balderton, Point Nine, and Trinity.

We're a fun team of over 150 people from 40 nations with offices in Berlin and San Francisco, looking for more amazing individuals to join our team!



Customer Success Managers are our customers’ “go-to people” at Contentful. We are looking for a thoughtful and proactive teammate who can effectively and empathetically interact with our customers. You will be responsible for building trusted customer relationships and advising on best practices to ensure long-term project success. Your mission: When customers bring questions, you’ll find answers; if they bring problems, you’ll drive resolution.

While a technical background isn’t required, you should be comfortable “stretching” yourself to learn technical topics. Because you will be talking with developers, familiarity with programming tools and terminology is a definite plus.

As the voice of our customers, you will surface their feedback to our product and engineering teams ensuring that we continue to provide world-class solutions meeting the highest expectations.

Contentful’s Customer Success Department is a spirited team from around the globe with diverse backgrounds. We keep things light-hearted while also solving difficult customer situations and creating new internal processes. Intellectual curiosity and interpersonal relationship skills are core to what we do; we seek to understand the “why” and not just the “what.” We practice empathy and the art of anticipating customer needs.
