Customer Success Manager

At CoLab, we want to help mechanical engineering teams bring life-changing products to market years sooner. CoLab is a cloud based platform purpose built for fast, effective design review. Using CoLab, multiple engineers, designers, and other stakeholders can review designs together and build off one another’s feedback. Engineers at companies like Ford, Komatsu, and Johnson Controls use CoLab to review designs faster, prevent mistakes, and build the next generation of innovative products.

CoLab is a B2B enterprise SaaS company with a “land and expand” go-to-market approach – that means customer expansion is a critical part of our strategy, and therefore, so is our Customer Success organization. We are looking for a driven Customer Success Manager to work with our team and create value for our customers by providing onboarding, strategic consultation, and ongoing assistance for CoLab implementation and growth.

You will closely monitor usage, satisfaction, and ROI to ensure customer health, and work cross functionality to solve problems as they arise. You will advocate customer needs to the product team, while helping them prioritize based on your knowledge of business goals, changing customer requirements, and sales enablement needs. You are proactive with customer issues, resilient when things go wrong, and disciplined in how you operate. This role will work closely with Account Executives, Product Managers, and our Senior Leadership team to ensure customer success and drive the voice of the customer into everything we do at CoLab.
