This Customer Success Manager is a key new hire for our growing company.

BreakLine thrives when our Veteran, Maven, and Apex participants land their perfect role in the tech industry.

We are looking for a hungry, strategic, and results-driven Success Manager to lead a portfolio of BreakLine partner companies and BreakLine participants. This is a revenue-generating role and achieving revenue goals is the fundamental measure of success for this role.

Our Customer Success (CS) team is the pivot point between our partners and participants. Success Managers identify and curate multiple opportunities for each BreakLiner, leveraging their relationships with and expertise in our BreakLine partner companies to lead and coach our participants to land phenomenal roles in tech. Internally, the CS team serves as the primary advocate for our partner companies with BreakLine’s Admissions, Education, & Experience teams in order to maximize the value each company sees in their partnership with BreakLine.

– Track record of persuading others to take action based on their requirements and value

– Experience managing difficult customers or situations and demonstrated resolutions

– A do whatever it takes attitude to accomplish goals, prioritizing outcomes over processes

– Ability to navigate internal and external stakeholders to identify answers and solutions

– A love of working hard, hustling, and having a good time (this is not a 9-5 job)

– Equal parts entrepreneur and team player

 

What you’ll do day-to-day:

– Rigorously manage your time across a portfolio of 15 partner companies and 25 participants

– Onboard and understand each partner company’s overarching hiring priorities and specific job descriptions in order to drive toward shared objectives

– Develop relationships with and build shortlists for recruiters and hiring managers at your partner companies, ensuring that the curated shortlists are of the highest quality

– Obsess over guidance and feedback from partner companies in order to drive more value and expand each partnership in both breadth and depth

– Onboard and understand each BreakLine participant’s qualifying and disqualifying factors for their next job opportunity (technical skill sets, geography, company size, role leveling, etc)

– Co-create and execute a game plan with each participant to leverage their passions and skills toward a shortlist of job opportunities, communicating regularly to provide coaching, feedback, and additional interview opportunities until the participant receives and accepts an offer

– Leverage your expertise on partner company and participants requirements and pattern-match roles to participants to consistently ensure there are multiple BreakLiners in process for each partner company’s roles and each BreakLiner is actively interviewing with multiple companies

– Be a thought leader to your customers regarding attracting, hiring, and retaining top-performers with nontraditional backgrounds

– Represent the voice of the customer inside BreakLine, identifying room for improvement or opportunities to seize in order to achieve partner and participant goals

– Collaborate across BreakLine Outreach, Admissions, Education, Marketing, and Experience teams to maximize value for every participant and every partner
