How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Having offices in Germany and the US, we use a wide variety of collaboration tools such as Slack & Hangouts. Everyone is approachable so sometimes we just pick up the phone if something requires immediate attention. For Brainstorming sessions, we use Jamboards & Google docs. We also ensure all collaboration is documented for access.

What makes someone successful on your team?

As a Senior Customer Success Manager it is crucial to be merchant and customer focused to be successful. Not only are we providing first-class service for our merchants but we have to consider their customers and the user-experience. We are mobile experts who just happen to be fast-paced problem solvers!

Natalie

Sr. Customer Success Manager

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

From day one I have involved every individual on my team, from top to bottom, in conversations on what works and what doesn't work. They are encouraged and empowered to develop solutions that work for them to the benefit of the team as a whole. Eliminating top-down only decision making energizes everyone!

Ken

VP of Customer Success

How does your team reward individual success?

Since we are in a smaller office, everyone is very aware of what other people are working on. When you achieve something great it's awesome to be congratulated by everyone in the office and feel the genuine interest in what you accomplished.
