Title: Director of Client Success for a Growing SaaS Startup

Job Description

Glowing is looking to hire a Director of Customer Success to build a customer success function that retains, expands, and delights customers distributed all over the world. The Director of Customer Success will oversee a small team and be responsible for customer onboarding, adoption, account management, and expansion. The role will report directly to CEO and Founder, Jasen Lew.

We want everyone who uses any solution of ours — up and down the client’s organizational structure — to be glowing (pun intended).

Will you help us get there?

What You’ll Do

  • First Week: You will learn about Glowing’s mission and vision, seek to understand our customer success processes, understand our client base and get to know members of our global team.
  • First Month: You will take over day-to-day management of the 2-person customer success team and learn how to train customers on Glowing’s platform.
  • First Quarter: You will design and deliver a repeatable, scaleable, and delightful customer onboarding process. You will write, execute, and train others on a playbook for a mid-market and enterprise customer success motion (post-onboarding adoption, renewal, expansion). You will determine, develop a measurement methodology for, and improve key performance indicators, such as client health, net promoter score (NPS), customer satisfaction (CSAT), and customer advocacy (references).
  • First Year: Your team will secure at least $400,000 ARR in expansion sales in FY2023. You will achieve a net dollar retention (NDR) goal while improving CAC payback period. You will build a function — and then a team — that will help Glowing achieve its ARR milestones towards $10M ARR while living into our motto to “stay personal.”

  • You have experience with a successful B2B referral program
