  • Translating product features into customer benefits and work with product marketing to develop messaging and positioning for our sales organization and other internal and external stakeholders

 

 

Customer Experience

  • Understanding and advocating for the voice of the customer

  • Communicating and collaborating throughout the entire organization including with senior leadership, product teams, sales, professional services, marketing, user experience, etc.
  • Collaborating with appropriate departments to assess and update pricing, competitive analysis, and profitability while ensuring client adoption and satisfaction
