Job Description

Brightback’s Customer Success team is an integral function of our organization. It’s responsible for on-boarding new customers, supporting product roll-outs, driving ongoing adoption, managing renewals and ensuring our customers are raving fans. That’s not an easy task. No fear, we have a dynamic team of sharp, motivated, fun, individuals who are building and nurturing a customer-centric approach to all things they do.

We are looking for a Director of Customer Success who is passionate about customer happiness, relationship building, increasing customer satisfaction through data-driven approaches, and scaling a distributed Customer Success team! We need someone who is naturally curious and willing to try something new in order to learn and adapt.

What Qualities & Experience Make You The Right Fit:
