RStudio - Customer Success Manager

paid / full-time / Remote, USA

RStudio creates great software that helps people understand data and make better decisions in real-world applications. Our core offering is an open-source data science platform, which we aim to make available to everyone, regardless of their economic means. Our customers are leading-edge innovators in analytics, machine learning, big data, and similar domains, and generally work in R and Python.

The goal of our Customer Success team is to partner with our customers to drive adoption and predictable outcomes with RStudio’s professional products, leading to renewals, expansion, and advocacy. To retain business, the Customer Success team seeks proactively to eliminate barriers to the adoption of our enterprise products and demonstrate ongoing value. To increase adoption, the team regularly uses knowledge of open source data science and our professional products to equip our customers with the latest skills, in turn creating a natural demand for RStudio’s professional products.

As we grow, we are looking to add a Customer Success Manager to this talented and dedicated team. In this role, you will be responsible for:

  • Maintain a cadence of communication with customers about their adoption trends, sentiment, and opportunities for deeper engagement
  • Identifying opportunities for customers to act as RStudio advocates (e.g., testimonials, case studies)
  • Marshalling resources across the RStudio organization as needed to escalate customer issues and support customers needs
  • Representing the voice of the customer to inform our sales process and product roadmap
  • Finally, because of RStudio’s position within the R community, you must continue to learn about, contribute to, and be a champion of R, open-source data science, RStudio, and our community’s unique culture.
