About You:

To excel in the Customer Success Specialist position, it’s helpful if you are…

A Patient & Empathic Guide.  

You are a naturally gifted helper. You listen carefully and without judgment, respond with warmth and understanding, and go above and beyond to ensure that people feel comfortable. You relish any opportunity to provide clarity and relieve stress.

A Fearless Investigator.

No problem is too difficult for you to solve. When someone presents you with a challenge, you leap on the opportunity to diagnose the issue and find a solution. You thrive on curiosity and can take seemingly disparate pieces of information and find the missing link, like a detective decoding messages.

A Proactive Team Player.

You take ownership of your role and go above and beyond to find solutions before enlisting the help of your teammates. You’re not afraid to jump in the deep end or experiment with something new. You are an independent self-starter who always keeps the needs of the team in mind.
