Goodlord are looking for a Customer Success Manager to join their team.
About the role
Goodlord’s mission is to provide the best renting experience in the world and we’re on the hunt for a customer-centric and commercially astute CSM to join our industry leading Customer Success Team.
Our Customer Success team manages our customer relationships, turning estate agents into Goodlord evangelists. They are responsible for helping new customers get to know our platform inside out, and consulting on their early platform use.
They make sure agencies maximise the value they're getting from Goodlord. The role is dynamic, varied and daily priorities can change rapidly dependent on customer requirements.
To succeed in this role, you will need to think and operate at a strategic level, whilst making pragmatic tactical decisions to support day-to-day customer interactions and maintaining a commercial focus.
In this role, you’ll get to know our customers inside out, and ensure we’re always one step ahead of their needs.
This is a fast-paced role where no two days are ever quite the same - on any given day, you’ll be troubleshooting user queries, taking care of customer escalations, working through customer renewals, managing advocacy campaigns, supporting the launch of new product features and ensure their continual usage.
The day to day stuff:
No two days are ever the same at Goodlord so what you’ll be up to will vary. The pace we move at also means priorities will change and you’ll need to be comfortable with this (we’ll support you!). But these are the things that will be core to your role and will keep you busy.
- Working with and managing a pool of mid/large level accounts, who are changing the way they do business by using Goodlord’s products and services.
- Utilising data to ensure that Goodlord is maximising the commercial return from their customers by monitoring the continual use of our products and services.
- Using data to measure and produce reports and reviews that ultimately tie into our wider sales strategies.
- Work closely with customers to understand how we can improve key products.
- Stay on top of competitor and industry changes to ensure we stay ahead in an ever changing industry.
- Working proactively on solving challenging external and internal issues to identify and implement creative solutions for our customers.
- Work with NPS surveys and directly with the customer to produce analysis on customer needs and uptake of products.
- Immersing yourself in the company and building knowledge of our evolving product, ensuring feedback flows from Customer Success to the relevant business and product teams.
- Working cross-functionally within the company to develop process and improve customer experience.
- Collaborating with the sales, support and technology team members to design and implement new product features that reflect the voice of our customers.
- Up-selling additional product features and longer contracts to existing clients.
- Supporting internal team training to ensure we upskill together.
** Hybrid working as standard **
We started Goodlord because we wanted to make renting simple and transparent for everyone involved: the agent, landlord and tenant. We knew generation rent would lead to more tenants, with higher digital expectations and we were confident we could provide a solution.
And we did. Like all high growth companies it’s been a bit of a roller coaster journey, but we’re now stronger than ever, with over 1000 happy customers and exciting new products. We have ambitious plans but with William Reeve at the helm alongside co-founder Tom Mundy and a brilliant team of over 200 talented Goodlordians we are confident we’ll achieve these.
Our values guide our decisions, the way we work, our culture and the people we ask to join the team. We work hard, have fun and support each other. We’re not afraid to make mistakes (we’d never learn if we didn’t) and we’re always looking to challenge ourselves. Our style is collaboration based on honesty, friendship and respect.
And in the past year we’re proud to have been recognised as a Great Place to work. No one likes a show off, but we can’t not shout about this. We’ve worked hard to make Goodlord great, and it’s important you know this isn’t just words on paper; Goodlordians have validated this which has led to us being accredited:
- 9th in Deloitte’s UK Technology Fast 50
- 20th Great Place to Work in the UK medium-sized businesses
- 11th in the UK for great medium-sized workplaces for tech
- 12th in the UK for great medium-sized workplaces for women
