  • You have experience scaling a business unit operating on a recurring revenue business model that produced tens of millions in ARR during your tenure
  • You are passionate about using data and analytics to craft an exceptional customer experience throughout the customer lifecycle (e.g., reduce average time to first value)
  • You have either specialized in one or overseen several of the following functions: customer support, account management, product adoption/client onboarding, professional services, international support/service (including translation/localization)
  • You believe that revenue growth derives from demonstrating recurring value to the customer and have experience overseeing new logo or expansion sales performance
