Customer Success Specialist

San Francisco, California
Customer Success
At Plato, we’re on a mission to help engineering managers become great leaders. Our platform intelligently matches “mentees” to highly experienced engineering leaders of various backgrounds to help resolve their most pressing management challenges. After raising over $3M from SaaStr's Jason Lemkin, Slack, Zoom CEO Eric Yuan, and more earlier this year, we've experienced exceptional and rapid growth.

As our first Customer Success Specialist, you’ll report to the Cofounder / Head of Customer Success and Product and work closely with the sales, marketing and product teams to ensure customers are successful and happy. You’ll also work to surface key customer insights that will inform our product roadmap.

This is a dynamic opportunity that’s customer-facing and strategic. Your day-to-day will consist of onboarding new mentees to the platform, helping to match mentees with their new mentors, surfacing feedback and insights to improve the product experience, as well as building internal tools to help scale up our customer success efforts. At Plato you’ll have a big impact on the growth of a promising startup as well as the career development of 100’s of engineering leaders.

At Plato, you’ll enjoy a scrappy startup environment, collaborative and thoughtful team members, lot’s of natural light–and a great view from the SaaStr co-selling space in SoMa. Along with competitive salaries, generous stock options and the full slate of benefits, Plato provides everything you personally need to get your job done. We are passionate about our mission and are lucky to see the impact of our work, everyday! Plato has offices in both SF and Paris. This role will be based out of our SF office.

Very few companies have the potential to do something truly meaningful to actually help others. We believe that making managers better, more successful, and happier results in a happier overall workplace. And improving that even 10% leads to a ripple effect.

We spend nearly all of our waking lives at work. Let's make that better.
