At Khoros, our passion is to help the world's best brands create customers for life. We build products we're proud of, and we're passionate about Customer Experience. As part of the Vista Equity family, you'll receive best in class development opportunities and the ability to work with customers like Google, Microsoft, Disney and Sprint.

We are building a new, innovative team of Customer Experience experts designed to be an integral part of cross-functional sales teams having differentiating, solutions-focused discussions with our Customers. These teams help Customers define their vision for their own Customer Experience, craft the just right Khoros Professional Services packages to ensure Khoros software delivers on those Customer Experiences, and are strong examples of what it is to be a Khoros Customer. 

The Customer Experience Associate is a critical member of the cross-functional team. Key focus areas include helping gather clear business and technical requirements from Customers and then matching those requirements to either standard services offerings or supporting Services Architects in the development of custom services solutions for customers. 

Customer Experience Associates will contribute to clear and concise visions and presentations associated with active sales opportunities that are delivered to prospects as part of a solutions sales process. This position requires someone who is quick thinking, flexible, creative, and analytical. The ability to research, learn and quickly leverage complex information to share with our Customers is a key component of this position.

This role is part of the Customer Success/Operations Team but will work broadly across the organization to collaborate and build processes and solutions required to craft exceptional Customer Experiences. In particular, our most important partners are in the Sales organization. We will work together to acquire, serve, and delight customers.

  • Partner with the Sales team and other Customer Experience team members to articulate customer requirements to Professional Services teams, ensure a smooth transition from Sales to Services to set the stage for a successful customer implementation of Khoros products, and establish a foundation for a long term differentiated Khoros Customer Experience.
  • Partner with Sales Executives and other members of the sales team to respond effectively to issues and opportunities.
  • Become an active, integral part of sales strategy and execution.
