Strategic Success Manager

Amplitude is laser focused on driving value to customers, and as a result, the Customer Success team influences every part of the company. We help drive what our product and engineering teams build, what our sales team pitches, what stories our marketing team tells, and we ensure that the customer voice is heard in all internal decisions. As part of the Go-To-Market function, Customer Success is responsible for maximizing customer retention and driving expansion - our customers' success leads to our success.
As a Strategic Success Manager, you are responsible for making sure that our most strategic customers, like Cisco, Microsoft, Paypal, and Under Armour, are being successful in achieving their product goals. As a dedicated resource on a portfolio of strategic accounts, you will lead the process for understanding the most important business challenges that product executives you partner with are trying to solve. You'll then plan and execute on a roadmap to help solve these challenges and get them to their desired outcomes.
Strategic Success Managers wear two hats:
1) Strategic Account Manager -- it is your responsibility to create and maintain a positive relationship with all of your customers with the goal of maximizing customer retention and reducing customer churn. This means having regular conversations with key influencers and power users to evaluate the strength of the business relationship, digging for pain and getting product feedback, being a product advocate for other users within your customers' organization, and relaying important communications directly to the customer. You'll work closely with Account Executives to build growth strategies for your accounts and work with them through renewal and upsell conversations. Internally, you'll work closely with the product, engineering, sales, and marketing teams to bring the customer voice into their key conversations.
2) Product Analytics Strategist -- you will become a product analytics leader and you will teach your customers how to derive valuable insights from our highly technical product. Your responsibilities include leading the onboarding process, conducting hands-on trainings on the platform, answering ad hoc business/strategy questions, and sharing methodologies and insights from your wealth of knowledge. You'll build strategic frameworks for the different user personas (analysts, PMs, managers, C-level execs, etc) who can get value from the data in the system. Internally, you will help our product team and engineers in driving the product roadmap as you will advocate for your customers and voice their needs in product meetings

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
