The Role

NS1's Customer Success Managers (CSMs) are valued partners for some of the most significant properties on the internet, onboarding them to our robust platform and then helping them meet their strategic objectives each year.

  • Leveraging resources across NS1's engineering teams to solve client challenges
  • Coordinating and preparing business reviews for enterprise customers
  • Collaborating with NS1's Customer Success Engineers on prioritizing incoming customer requests
  • Identifying and qualifying opportunities for upsells and upgrades and working with Sales to bring those deals across the finish line
Your Skills:

  • 2-4 years experience as a dedicated account resource for enterprise customers, either directly or as an external consultant
  • Experience leading face-to-face customer meetings and presenting to a highly technical audience
  • Proven track record of crafting custom project plans that align with customer objectives
  • Strong communication (written and verbal) and organizational skills
