Full Time
Zuma makes an automated sales agent that converses with 100% of inbound leads, ultimately improving the way consumers interact with businesses and organizations. We’ve built this from the ground up using AI, ML, and human support which helps increase sales conversion and support capacity for businesses of all kinds. Zuma is one of the fastest-growing startups in San Francisco, and is well-funded and backed by world-class investors such as Y-Combinator, Joe Montana’s fund (Liquid 2 Ventures), Day One Ventures, Soma Capital, and other notable angel investors including Austen Allred (from Lambda School), YC’s ex-COO Qasar Younis, among others.

Headquartered in San Francisco, USA, we operate nationally and have plans to grow rapidly over the next few years. To do that, we need great people committed to our vision in a big way. We're looking to build a team of rockstars that are equally excited about the opportunity to leverage technology to improve the way customers interact with businesses!

Zuma is looking for an Account Manager with 2-3+ years of experience onboarding, managing, and growing their client accounts. This individual will be responsible for onboarding both pilots and new clients and ultimately guiding them through that process. Bonus points if you’ve had experience working with clients that require complex integrations with multiple disconnected systems. Once a pilot or client is onboarded, the Account Manager will be responsible for fielding all external client requests and working with internal stakeholders to complete them. This individual will also be responsible for growing all client accounts as time goes on. If you enjoy working in a fast-paced start-up environment where your work will make an immediate impact as we continue to scale, this would be a great fit for you!
