Job Description

What We Do: PayScale's Customer Success team helps our customers utilize our products, services, and data to develop better pay strategies for their organizations. Our Customer Success teams (Customer Success Management, Implementation, Professional Services, Customer Programs, Customer Support, and Customer Operations) work cross-functionally not only to ensure a seamless customer lifecycle, but also to help them reach their business goals, proving the return on investment of their PayScale solution(s).

What You Do: As a Customer Success Manager (CSM) you will partner with the other CSMs in our high volume segment to support PayScale's largest customer base. You'll be responsible for the success, growth, and adoption of your customers. We work directly with customers in order to maximize the value they realize with our solutions; engaging from post-sale through renewal and making sure they are moving forward toward their own business goals at each step. Those who are most successful in this role have a high degree of curiosity and a willingness to stretch, learn, develop, and (at times) be uncomfortable.

Day-in-the-Life: As a CSM, a typical day may include the following…

  • Discussing project progress, overcoming roadblocks, and product adoption on 2-4 scheduled customer calls
  • Proactively contacting 5-10 customers to discuss key lifecycle points, such as onboarding, increasing adoption, risk, and opportunities for growth
  • Responding to inbound customer requests to help better utilize their account and subscription
  • Meeting internally to act as 'voice of the customer' with our Product, Support, Marketing, or Management teams on how we can increase value and resolve concerns



  • Previous experience in a Customer Success, Account Development, or Sales role with high outbound/inbound volume
  • Bachelor’s Degree not required, but strongly preferred


  • Time Management: Proven organizational/time management skills with ability to prioritize tasks and initiatives in a fast-paced environment
  • Problem Solving: A self- starter with a love for problem solving, building innovative solutions, and an ability to see the “big picture”
  • Learning & Development: A strong sense of ownership and autonomy, but also eager to accept and apply feedback to up-level your skillset
  • Rapport Building: Strong relational skills to establish strong rapport within multiple levels of customer organizations
  • Overcoming Objections: An aptitude for conducting tough conversations, including overcoming objections and a knack for keeping customers accountable to reaching their definition of success

Additional Information

She's dedicated to building a culture of human relationships, honest feedback, and treating employees the way we want them to treat our customers.
