What does your typical day look like?

My day is never the same! Some days I'm learning about new features/functionality that really helps my customers achieve their objectives, other days I'm collaborating with colleagues around better ways to engage our customers. Finally, my day is full of meetings with customers who share their positive experiences using our software!


Customer Success Manager
