, and are looking to join a team that’s passionate about helping others work and live more productively, we want to hear from you. Here are a few tips from our CEO
to make sure your resume stands out from the crowd.
Why We’re Hiring For This Role
We’re building our foundational account management team that will help our newly activated customers get the most value out of Float and resource management. You’ll be joining a small team and help build our team processes and culture and have a direct impact on the company’s maturity and success.
We succeed by putting the customer first. Each interaction with our customers is an opportunity to continuously improve the value we deliver over time through a combination of our product and our relationships working harmoniously to help organizations plan and track time. We’re looking for someone that is excited by being part of the foundational team within a growing and scaling company.
You’ll be working asynchronously with a bright, dedicated team from across the globe, with a strong focus on creating solutions that feel simple and intuitive for our customers.
What You’ll Be Responsible For
You’ll work within our team of Account Managers to onboard new customers and help them reach goals and targets to get the most value out of Float. Our customers are typically teams within larger organizations such as a creative department within a tech company or the Sydney office of a large advertising agency. These teams love Float but a big challenge is introducing a new tool for Resource Management and managing that rollout internally.
You’ll be leading our largest market in the Americas as our first hire in the region. A typical day would include reaching out to a new set of customers for early activation and onboarding and also manage an existing book of business for engagement, expansion, and renewal opportunities.
Early on you’ll focus on:
- Helping create a smooth handoff from the sales team to account management
- Training and onboarding new customers past their trial
- Creating both a high-touch and low-touch onboarding experience
And once you’re settled in the role, we’d love to see your impact with these projects
- Identifying expansion opportunities for growth
- Recognizing churn risks and mitigation techniques
- Establishing an end-to-end account management experience for the lifetime of an account
- Creating playbooks for different customer use cases
What You'll Need To Be Successful
We want you to love your work and believe that these skills will allow you to succeed in the role.
We’re looking for someone with proven experience in an Account Management role working with SMB to enterprise-level book of business for a SaaS product. You should be comfortable training and onboarding new customers and show demonstrable experience expanding the book of business via cross-sell and up-sell. You’ll also help create processes and workflows that help us improve our customer experience such as establishing quarterly business reviews, streamlining renewals and billing inquiries, or creating resource content.
Skills and requirements for the role:
- End-to-end Account Management or Customer Success Management experience encompassing early onboarding to churn and renewal management
- Drive to go above and beyond to build empathy and trusting relationships
- Strong communication skills in both written communication that drives value as well as clear and concise discussions during customer meets
- Ability to translate technical concepts to different skill levels and customer types
As a fully remote team, we’re looking for someone comfortable with asynchronous communication as the default, which means you have previous remote experience and are comfortable using tools like Slack, Loom, and Asana to communicate as needed. Don’t worry—you will have significant deep work time since we have very few meetings
