The (High-Touch) Public Sector CSM is a strategic consultative role responsible for a portfolio of customers; ensuring their lifetime value and usage of DocuSign. The CSM works closely with key cross-functional teams, including Sales, Account Management, Partner Success, and Professional Services, and will define, develop and execute effective customer adoption strategies that support their customer’s specific industry and use cases and business outcomes. The role supports DocuSign’s strategic imperative to accelerate customer adoption, use and time to value.
The Public Sector/Government CSM will work with DocuSign’s state & local government customers and SI partners to understand current state and business objectives/goals. From there, the CSM will then recommend and program manage a customized set of strategies, including strategies selected from a menu of DocuSign’s full Customer Success organization’s portfolio offering (e.g. Professional Services, DocuSign University, Adoption Consulting). The CSM must be able to understand government programs and cross-walk that understanding into winning DocuSign adoption strategies. The CSM can discuss and advise on core functionality and features beyond the fundamentals, to help the customer achieve specific business results and maximum value. Working with resources across the Customer Success organization and sales, the CSM may recommend specific complimentary and for-fee solutions to help customers achieve desired outcomes. They ensure best practices are adopted for product use. The primary focus of this role is adoption and usage of the DocuSign products, with the aspiration of supporting increased value for customers and financial growth and expansion for DocuSign. While an understanding of SaaS Customer Success principles is important for this role, we are looking for candidates with a consulting and/or government background who have recently made or are looking to make a move into a role in SaaS/High Tech.
