Customer Success Manager [DACH]

Netherlands, Noord-Holland, AmsterdamGrowth

Job description

After becoming market leader in the Netherlands we’re hitting the gas in five cities in Western Europe - Copenhagen, Stockholm, Berlin, Antwerp, and Paris. An incredibly important part of our growth is creating the most seamless and efficient experience for our Restaurateurs. Our Business Developers do a fantastic job of bringing in new restaurant and create an awesome first impression of Formitable but the magic really happens when our Customer Success Managers step in. As a CSM at Formitable you’re responsible for the onboarding of new restaurants and making sure that they are getting the most out of our product.

You will join our existing HQ team to solidify our growth in the DACH Region. You’ll work closely with our Business Development Managers (based in both Amsterdam and Berlin) to form the DACH country pod.

As part of the the DACH team you help restaurants to get the most out of Formitable by proactively providing them with advice and reports on how to use Formitable's available solutions. You do this in collaboration with sales, as well as on the basis of user behaviour data. You work closely with marketing, sales, product, and support in an international team and you are responsible to drive customer value and expanding the share of the wallet.

Formitable and your future team

We are a bonded group of food enthusiasts, design fanatics, tech fans, and creative thinkers that try to challenge the status quo in the restaurant industry on a daily basis. We hope to do this while inspiring restaurateurs to take their restaurants’ experience to the next level and in their own hands. It’s not about where you come from or what beliefs you bring with you. It’s about sharing the same values as us and being in line with our vision, mission, and purpose. Together we push towards a brighter future for the restaurant industry.

This role sits within our sales team, managed by our Head of Sales, Chris van de Graaf. We work in country pods consisting of Business Development Managers and Customer Success Managers. BDM’s are based in both HQ and in country (our boots on the ground), they manage all outbound deals; from first call to deal made. CSM’s are based in HQ and they take over the onboarding process when a restaurant chooses to work with Formitable.

We have additional support from our Inbound team. They take care of all inbound sales inquiries and manage the onboarding process for these restaurants.

Impact you’ll have

Our goal is to become the #1 growth platform for Restaurants. We believe that restaurants have become lifestyle brands, and with forward-thinking digital products, restauranteurs will create the same perfect experience online as they already do offline, resulting in a more valuable, loyalty-led business.

The impact of a CSM for both Formitable and your clients is immeasurable. You will be responsible for ensuring that Restaurants are getting the absolute most out of our software and you’ll get to play a part in their growth!
