Customer Success Specialist

Location: St, Louis, MO

As a Customer Success Specialist, you will be responsible for managing 100 - 200 customer relationships. Some of your customers will be new while others may have been using Boat Planet for several years. You will work with your customers on a regular basis to understand their goals, ensure their success, and turn them into delighted long-term customers. Along the way, you will get to know Boat Planet's platform incredibly well and polish your marketing skills.

In working with your customers, you will find that no two of them are the same. In the morning, you could be working with the owner of a boat detailing company about how to take before and after pictures. In the afternoon, you could be sharing a quarterly report with the CMO of a large marina and pitching the opportunity to expand into other markets.

Your day-to-day is a mix of proactive and reactive work, and CSS's have a lot of autonomy in managing their "book of business". The proactive work includes pre-scheduled deep-dive calls with customers, where you review their progress, make strategic and tactical recommendations, and keep them up to date on the latest and greatest features from Boat Planet. The reactive work runs the gamut from questions about invoices, to "how to" questions about the platform, to conducting health checks that ensure your customers are seeing value from the product. You will also partner with the sales and development team to get your customers the support they need when they need it.

If you're stimulated by problem-solving - whether it's a business or technical challenge - this is the role for you.

  • Experience in a client-facing/account management role
  • Strong knowledge in digital marketing
  • Knowledge of Inbound Marketing or the aptitude to learn it quickly and independently

  • Motivated self-starter who is hungry to learn and can provide strong examples of how they have achieved results while balancing demanding expectations
  • Super organized, quick learner who works well under pressure
  • Strong negotiation skills, comfortable discussing financial options, and dealing with cancellations
  • It's easy for you to build and maintain relationships, manage expectations, and identify issues that require escalation

  • Ability to take ownership of challenging scenarios and bring them to resolution
