TL;DR: Looking for someone who can retain and grow our existing partner ecosystem.

About On Deck
On Deck is where ambitious people grow, together. Whatever it is our fellows want to do next, our ever-growing community and action-oriented programming will help them get there—fast. If our fellows want to learn something new to up-level their career, launch and scale big ideas, or make lifelong friends, this is the place.

Role Overview
In this role, you’ll be the first dedicated Partner Success Manager on our team and will make decisions that will have a significant impact on the growth and success of our business unit. You will work closely with the Partnerships team, and the rest of the revenue organization, to support existing partners and Learning & Development customers and help them navigate the ever-growing On Deck ecosystem. By managing part of the existing portfolio of partners, you’ll grow and retain each account and increase LTV of partner relationships.

You're an ideal fit for this role if you love going the extra mile for customers/ partners. The team is growing rapidly, so you'll get an inside seat at a company in blitz scale mode and make a significant impact through your work.

Who you are:

    • Excellent verbal and written communication skills: Ability to influence and partner with Founders and other startup leaders
    • Customer obsessed: 3+ years of experience in account management, customer success, or business development role, ideally in tech or venture-backed startups, or selling to startups
    • Have strong negotiation skills and business & financial acumen, with an ability to make data-informed decisions
    • Have experience independently negotiating and closing high contract value deals
    • Have experience working cross-functionally with product, marketing, and sales teams
    • Community/ relationship builder: A positive-sum relationship builder who genuinely enjoys talking to people and creating opportunities for others
    • An operator at your core: meticulously detail-oriented and organized – able to juggle many priorities while not dropping any balls. You are highly resourceful, an eager learner, and thrive in a scrappy and often chaotic environment

What you will do:

    • Strengthen On Deck's partner ecosystem by providing the best partner/customer experience out there
    • Develop internal processes and products for account management function, including onboarding, managing, and marketing partnerships (playbooks, decks, perk library, etc), and growing with partners
    • Provide custom onboarding and success plan for key strategic partners
    • Implementing, tracking, and analyzing partner performance, engagement within our OD universe, and quantifying LTV of partner relationships
    • Work cross-functionally with partnerships, L&D, marketing, product, programs teams, and experience to identify areas of opportunity
    • Understand the ecosystem of related OD products available to partners and provide recommendations to partners on how they might leverage these
    • Be the partner's point of contact at On Deck, working swiftly to resolve any issues in a timely matter

Why you might be excited about us:

    • We’re tackling a big problem with even bigger potential. Participants in our existing Fellowships say great things about us
    • You’ll be able to work remotely and (mostly) set your own schedule. On Deck was a remote-first team even before COVID, so we know what makes for a great remote environment
    • You'll have a lot of flexibility in your role, and will be able to help define what our operations infrastructure looks like going forward
    • We're backed by a who’s who of the biggest names in the venture investing world, including Village Global, Keith Rabois, Balaji Srinivasan, Bloomberg Beta, and so many more. (Read more about our Series A in this memo)
