Customer Success Manager US (m/f) (1370 views)

Our mission is to build a global platform for successful high-volume photography.

fotograf.de/GotPhoto provides photographers a SaaS system for selling photos online. We already have active customers in 15 different countries on 5 continents, and are growing fast. As the market leader in Europe, we achieved profitability in 2015. We’re backed by top investors, including Saarbruecker21, Dr. Florian Heinemann and Christian Vollmann.

What’s our business?

We’re disrupting the volume / school photography industry. Our market is huge: 250 million people are photographed in schools and tourism sites in Europe and the US every year. However, the current method for selling photos is analog and inefficient: paper order forms are handed out, and photos are printed before they’ve been sold. Our innovative E-commerce and CRM system brings this process online. It’s faster, more efficient, and more profitable.

Your Mission

Your mission is to approach interested clients and guide (“onboard”) them all the way until their business is fully integrated with GotPhoto and they run all of their photo sales successfully with our system. To achieve this, you’ll need to convince, educate, and adapt existing processes as well as communicate necessary new features to our IT team. You are considered by our customers as business coaches and trusted advisors. It’s really up to you to shape and clear the path for a successful partnership and to keep delivering value with each customer interaction.

Your Tasks

  • Build relationships and guide customers from first contact to the successful technical implementation and use of our services
  • You are responsible for both small and large clients, working together with Fabricio, our Account Manager for the UK, and Julius, our Head of Customer Success
  • Educate the employees of our larger clients in different functions (e.g., sales, administration, and production) on how to accomplish their workflow efficiently using our services
  • Take care of the technical implementation and handle incoming feature requests with our Product Management
  • Convince our clients to drop their old behaviours and habits – to some extent – and adopt our best practices
  • Answer all the questions your customers come across while using GotPhoto
  • Develop the sales and client onboarding strategy for the GotPhoto team to meet current and future revenue goals

All in all not an easy task, but we will support you with all the industry-specific knowledge you need.
