A day in the life of an Onboarding Specialist

Day to day, you'll be working with Justin and Jesse from our customer-facing team. You will drive conversations with potential and newly converted customers, to clearly understand how Customer.io can assist them in achieving their goals, and providing expert guidance in helping them get started with the necessary steps needed to be successful. You'll shine at being empathetic in all conversations, and clearly articulate Customer.io's value proposition to new signups. You can think of this role as an expert advisor or concierge to help people become initially successful in the product. This is a role on our sales team. You must be comfortable and experienced working with and talking to engineers, product teams, marketers, and C-level executives. Your goals are to understand the needs of each customer (determine their fit for Customer.io), help them find the shortest path to success, and to turn them into a long-term paid customer.

Your responsibilities will include:

- Having initial conversations to understand if we are going to be a good fit for each other.
- Being the point of contact for prospective customers as they are trying out our service making sure they get all their questions answered.
- Gathering information about a prospective customer's product, making a recommendation on how to integrate, and offering tips and information on what messages to send.
- Performing instructional demos of the software to show people how to accomplish their specific tasks.
- Speaking intelligently about technical things, like APIs & their documentation, JSON, HTML, Javascript.

On a given day, you might end up teaching marketers about running A/B tests and creating rules for sending emails. You might also end up advising developers on how best to structure the data they are sending in to Customer.io. Then you could finish off by demoing the product and talking about how someone can best get value out of what Customer.io provides.

Ultimately the goal of this job is to help more people become happy, paying customers of the service.

- You can think logically and analytically. Customer.io is all about rules and you need to be able to understand and define them!

- You are comfortable negotiating with executives.
- You have ample experience and are comfortable talking on the phone with a variety of roles, e.g. engineers, marketers, c-level executives
