US West Coast - Ideally Bay Area or SoCal
We're actively looking for a highly motivated and experienced CSM on the West Coast who's looking for an amazing opportunity to join Neo4j and help some of our largest enterprise customers achieve success!
Customer Success Managers (CSMs) are the primary post-sales point of contact for a licensed Neo4j customer. They are the customer advocate and internal liaison for their assigned accounts, aligning regularly with Sales, Renewals, Marketing, Product, Support, and Professional Services to meet the needs of their customers, consistent with the “Customer Success Mission” below. CSMs ensure risks are known well in advance, and proper remedial action is taken.
A CSM will be technical and well-positioned to advise their customers to optimize their usage of Neo4j, and will partner with a Customer Success Architect (CSA) when advanced technical questions, concerns, objections, or other needs arise. They are ultimately responsible for ensuring that the customer and Neo4j each derive maximum value from the relationship.
