Job Description

Customer Service Vendor Account Associate Specialist team is a highly consultative group that manages relationships with and is responsible for the growth and retention of one of our fastest growing users. A Vendor Account Associate identifies opportunities for our users to get the most out of product by quickly understanding our users' needs, managing upsell and renewal opportunities, and driving end-to-end campaigns to increase adoption of our clients offering.

Vendor Account Associates are well-rounded strategic operators who can both build strong relationships with our client's users and manage projects to engage with customers at scale. This is a first-in-market role, so Account Associates should be able to operate in ambiguity.
