They will ensure customers are adopting and mastering Zendesk’s full solutions and achieving the value needed to retain our customer and grow total contract value. The Strategic Account Manager will be the “quarterback” for ensuring all the resources and entitlements relevant for the customer are brought to bear.

This is a chance to help tailor our “next-state” enterprise customer experience and engagement model with our critical partners necessary for success.
You will team up with our key partners including Zendesk executives, Product and Engineering, Renewals, Advocacy (support), business owners, Legal, and others. You’ll use creative thinking for product/services solutioning, as well as the value prop and all commercials. You will share Zendesk’s platform vision and goals with these accounts, and how we’re tracking against them to foster excitement and impact. You will be responsible for building relationships at the most strategic level within these accounts while forming a broad strategy for crafting compelling customer value and ensuring these customers are retained and achieve their ultimate CX goals.
