Customer Success Manager, Named Accounts - East



Customer Service, Sales & Business Development
New York, NY, USA
Posted on Friday, February 2, 2024

Our Customer Success Team is committed to helping customers adopt Asana as a collaborative work management platform. We strive to help all of our customers, across countries, industries, and functions, get the most value out of Asana over time.

We are looking for a Named Customer Success Manager (CSM) to help support and grow our largest and most strategic customers. As a Named CSM, you’ll guide a portfolio of customers to deploy Asana successfully, adopt it widely across their organization, and ensure they continuously gain business value from Asana. By engaging your customers using a consultative approach, you’ll position yourself as a preferred long-term strategic partner and serve as the trusted point of contact across their lifecycle: onboarding, value creation, and renewal. Equipped with the knowledge of what it takes for customers to succeed with Asana, you will serve as the voice of your customers cross-functionally, providing feedback to the Product team and broader business. You’ll exemplify an empathetic, customer-centric perspective to the entire Asana team.

This role is based in our New York City office with an office-centric hybrid schedule. Along with most Asanas, you’ll work from this office in person on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays. If you're interviewing for this role, your Talent Acquisition Partner will share more about the in-office requirements.

What you’ll achieve

  • Develop and nurture relationships across a portfolio of strategic customers.
  • Partner with customers to identify their strategic goals and co-create impact plans with clear success metrics and engagement strategies.
  • Execute all phases of the customer journey; ensuring value through deployment strategies, change management, workflow design, business performance reviews, and roadmap consultations.
  • Collaborate with Sales to develop strategic account plans, nurture executive relationships, manage renewals, and explore expansion opportunities.
  • Develop and maintain an internal Champion Network or Center of Excellence within the customer’s organization to help foster customer advocacy and facilitate customer testimonials or case studies.
  • Analyze customer usage to identify trends and drive targeted campaigns for enhanced engagement and product adoption to proactively identify risks and lead internal teams to create and execute corrective plans.
  • Serve as the voice of your customers by surfacing key trends and insights back to R&D and business teams.
  • Travel and meet customers on-site up to 25% of the time

About you

  • Minimum 10 years of professional experience, with at least 5 years of demonstrated success in a SaaS-based Customer Success or Account Management role
  • Experience working with large, complex enterprise-level accounts with a focus on the growth and implementation of large-scale technology solutions
  • Prior experience managing a book of high-value customer relationships in post-sales or deployment services with the ability to drive customer success and align within complex customer environments at executive and department levels
  • Ability to work with a broad range of stakeholders, from C-Suite and Asana administrators to functional leaders
  • Customer-centric at your core – you’re devoted to ensuring our customers’ success and adoption of Asana and advocate for customers’ needs
  • Self-motivated, proactive team player. You are biased for action and work effectively in a highly ambiguous, ever-changing environment. You’re able to zoom in on most granular details and also zoom out to understand the philosophy of how and why decisions are made
  • Driven and process-oriented. You’re able to effectively balance competing priorities and make decisions that best support Asana, the team, and the customer. You’re flexible and able to efficiently switch contexts across customer scenarios

At Asana, we're committed to building teams that include a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, and skills, as this is critical to helping us achieve our mission. If you're interested in this role and don't meet every listed requirement, we still encourage you to apply.

What we’ll offer

Our comprehensive compensation package plays a big part in how we recognize you for the impact you have on our path to achieving our mission. We believe that compensation should be reflective of the value you create relative to the market value of your role.

For this role, the estimated base salary range is between $159,000 - $203,000. The actual base salary will vary based on various factors, including market and individual qualifications objectively assessed during the interview process.
