Job Description

We’re hiring a strategic, relationship-focused Client Success Manager to join our Partner Growth team. The ideal candidate will employ an empathetic, yet analytical approach to optimizing our digital marketing services and resources for our clients -- international education and global travel program providers who utilize Go Overseas as a key referral source and reputation management platform.

Our Client Success Manager will help our partners define, track, and achieve desired business goals while enjoying the relationships they build with us along the way. Through strategic content development, analytics tracking, and exceptional customer support, you’ll be responsible for managing the digital marketing campaigns of our top clients and overseeing self-serve resources. As the main point of contact for ~100 clients, this role requires a high level of enthusiasm towards people and the ability to manage multiple accounts simultaneously.

An important aspect of the Client Success Manager role will involve working collaboratively and cross-functionally with other Go Overseas team members to deliver measurable value for our partners.

  • Excited by the opportunity to work, learn, and grow within a fast-paced, ever-changing startup environment
  • A mission-driven GO-getter (pun intended) — excited by our company values

  • Personally manage our top ~100 accounts, taking the lead to present key results, facilitate meetings, and deliver constructive feedback to clients
  • Assist clients with payment and billing questions, as needed
  • Seek out new business opportunities by collaborating with our Global Partnerships Manager to support successful renewals and contract expansions
