GitBook is a modern documentation platform sustained by some of the best SaaS europeans VCs (Point 9 Capital, Notion Capital, Fly VC). Our ambition is to empower team’s intelligence. We want to help teams work more efficiently by creating a single place to leverage their knowledge.
GitBook is now used by over 500,000 users and thousands of teams such as Adobe, Netflix, Decathlon, or Google. We’re working on an ambitious next product step to redefine “core team work” and we’re looking for our first Customer Success person (based in Lyon or working remotely) to join our team and help us continuously develop users’ satisfaction.
As a Customer Success Manager, and being our first Customer Success person, you will play a major part in determining our customer success strategy.
What will you be doing ?
Your role as a Customer Success Manager will be to create strong and long lasting relationships with our users to perfectly understand their business objectives, their operational constraints and guide them in the short, medium and long term to maximise the value created for them through their use of GitBook.
On a daily basis you will :
