Head of Customer Success

San Francisco, CA
Customer Success
Full-time
Hummingbird is a platform for managing anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing operations. We are motivated by the shared mission of fighting financial crime. Our work helps fight terrible crimes like human trafficking, political corruption, weapons sales, and drug cartels.

We are a customer-obsessed team. We love building and shipping great products. Our customers are financial crime fighters who are often drowning in paperwork and bureaucracy. We set a high bar for our work, challenge our assumptions, seek diverse opinions, and support each other to do great work.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

About the role
You will lead the Customer Success function at Hummingbird. Hummingbird is used by highly-trained professionals, and we strive to be the central hub for their important work. We are passionate about providing excellent customer service, usable and intuitive tools, and delightful experiences to a profession that has traditionally been unloved.

In this role, you will be responsible for the health of our customer relationships. You will work closely with our product, sales, marketing, and finance teams to establish an extraordinary customer success team. As the first point of contact for our customers, you will gather, synthesize, and distill product feedback and will have a direct influence on our roadmap and prioritization. When you start at Hummingbird, you will contribute as an individual, but you will have the opportunity to build a team for this practice area over time.
