What's the job? 

In short: You support the Sr. customer success managers by making sure our clients love working with Open Social. Any problem they experience is successfully solved.

We are looking for a Jr. Customer Success Manager to develop customer relationships, proactively drive customer adoption and ensure customer loyalty. You will be initially responsible for onboarding customers, conducting quarterly business reviews, support, training, and encouraging renewals or upsells. most of all, you ensure that they are satisfied and work to improve the areas of dissatisfaction. 

Over time, as the company grows, this role shifts to focus on strategic customer conversations. this role is not typically responsible for technical work or support; rather, they build relationships with the customers, work with teams to make sure that the services they need are provided and that the customer comes first at every step of the journey.

A bit about us

Open Social empowers people by providing an open-source platform to build online communities of like-minded individuals. Replacing traditional intranets, Open Social fuels bottom-up innovation within organizations.

Early versions of our offering have won the prestigious Dutch Interactive Awards. The project, Greenpeace Greenwire, helps more than 100.000 volunteers of Greenpeace bring positive change to the world around the globe. In The Netherlands alone, the software increased volunteering by 600%.

We offer our software in different versions: a free distribution, a fully maintained software-as-a-service, and an enterprise edition. It's built with open-source platform Drupal, a web technology for creating ambitious digital experiences and has more than a hundred thousand active contributors worldwide.

The project is developed by a team of 25 people in The Netherlands. Our offices are based in tech-hub TQ in Amsterdam and in Twente, and both are part of the Dutch StartupDelta; Europe’s largest startup ecosystem.
