Customer Success Engineer

San Francisco /
Success /
Over the past year our business has been growing at breakneck speed and we’ve been taking on more, and larger, customers. We’re looking to grow our Customer Success Engineering team to partner closely with our most important customers and help them grow on the Retool platform. Since our customers are primarily engineers, we work side by side with them to identify their use cases and help them build on Retool. You’ll be part strategic thought partner(helping customers figure out the best way to run their business on Retool), part engineer(building with the customer), and part champion of the customer to the rest of the company(highlighting pain points and feature requests). 

You will completely own the strategic relationship with our most important customers, from getting ramped on Retool with their use-cases to helping them troubleshoot their apps. You’ll partner closely with our customers to identify new and better ways to use Retool. You’re responsible for the overall success and happiness of the customers you manage and for being their advocate to other teams at Retool. You will identify trends for improvements and opportunities to help our customers thrive on Retool.  

You’ll join the Customer Success team and partner with other customer engineers to support our customers. You’ll work cross-functionally with team members ranging from support engineering to marketing, and you’ll partner with the sales team to navigate upsell conversations.
