Forter’s technology is on the cutting edge, and as such, the Customer Success team is in an exciting position to show customers how to benefit from that value. Unlike Customer Success at some companies where you may feel like a middle-man, Forter strives for more.

  • Direct client technical inquiries or troubleshooting questions to our Support team and help that team where necessary to ensure a positive customer experience
  • Maintain clean data within our internal systems to ensure that both you and Forter’s leadership team have the most accurate info possible about the book of business

What you’ll need:

  • 3-4 years of post-live, client-facing Customer Success experience
  • Experience leading monthly and quarterly business reviews with client executives where you described the value and ROI of your company’s solution
  • Experience communicating client business objectives or issues to your internal leadership in order to form a strategic account plan
  • Experience collaborating with your internal Product, R&D, and/or operations team to understand client needs and communicate product feedback
  • Experience enabling and training your clients on how to use your company’s UX both initially and on an ongoing basis
  • Experience in a SaaS startup environment, and in either the payments, fraud, or finance industry is a bonus
  • Ability to work in fast paced environment, be trusted to drive initiatives autonomously and gain buy in from a wide collection of stakeholders
  • Ability to break down ambiguous and nuanced problems into concrete, manageable components and think through optimal solutions
  • Openness to being hands on. Not afraid to roll your sleeves up and get in the weeds while solving complex operational problems
