What you would be doing:

  • Customer success is, first and foremost, about helping our customers succeed with Paxata by making their data analyst job easier; you demonstrate this passion in everything you do

  • You are REALLY good at listening! Customers have needs—we offer solutions: you identify the key areas where Paxata can offer real business value and become a vital part of a customer’s daily work

  • You’ve done this kind of work before—you work smarter and harder because you’ve not only done it, you love it and stand at the intersection of “been there, done that” and “what’s next?” by being obsessed with (of course!) customer success

  • Your skills in creating successful customers go full cycle: in pre-sales, you get prospective customers to “yes”, while in post-sales you make our customers enthusiastic advocates of our solution
