The CX Systems Specialist is essential in driving value for customers throughout their journey. As part of the Customer Experience Strategy & Operations team, this role will play an integral part in solutioning CX workflows, designing processes, and scaling our CS practice.

The Success team has recently adopted Gainsight as their Customer Success Platform (CSP), and this role has a special opportunity to contribute to the growth and maturity of its adoption. The CX Systems Specialist can introduce new ways to use the platform and help enhance its effectiveness in delivering customer success.

The CX Systems Specialist will also contribute to training team members and business partners to use the workflows they’ve helped set up, teach users best practices, ensure successful technical deployments on a recurring basis, and engage in daily problem solving to ensure the team can use the system productively.
