  • Make recommendations to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of teams that use Gainsight through development and adoption of best practices, standardized procedures, and “outside of the box” thinking.
  • Monitor system performance and data integrity to make recommendations and deploy continuous improvements.
  • Partner with Product Management to share our internal use cases and assist in designing and providing feedback on new products, from conception to deployment.

Job Benefits

At Gainsight, we don’t believe in doing things as a “means to an end.” Life’s too short to have anything short of a joyful work environment that we passionately believe in. We think that “work vs. life” is a false choice created by pundits, cynics and consultants. We also believe that any community (like a company) needs a ton of diversity and a very small number of things that bring us together.

Here are our 5 core values

  • Golden Rule: We try to practice the Golden Rule (“Do unto others…” and that sort of thing) by exercising reliability, trust and giving back to each other and our community.
  • Success for All: We believe that success for our stakeholders—whether our teammates, clients or shareholders—comes with a sincere focus on continuous learning, selfless teaching and making a difference in each other’s lives.
  • Child-like Joy: We aspire to experience child-like joy in our work and lives, injecting a spirit of passion, optimism and laughter into everything that we do.
  • Shoshin: We believe in a beginner’s mind.  Don’t surround yourself with people like you–diversity breeds creativity.
  • Stay Thirsty, My Friends: We believe in a totally internally-driven strive for greatness. The solution is think more, not doing more.

Why You’ll Love It Here

  • Our Attitude: We’ve created a new industry from scratch, and we’re on the fast track!
  • Our Leadership: We offer the leading tech solution for driving Customer Success.
  • Our ROI: Reduce customer churn, increase up-sell, and improve customer satisfaction.
  • Our Technology: Deep Salesforce.com hooks, predictive analytics, and a beautiful user interface.
  • Our Impact: We help our customers make millions of dollars more per year.
  • Our Clients: Big companies like Box, Adobe, Marketo, and many others.
  • Our Team: Tech all-stars from Facebook, Box, and others (and top consulting firms like BCG and McKinsey!).
  • Our Values: They are unique – Golden Rule, Success for All, Childlike Joy, Shoshin, and Stay Thirsty, My Friends
  • Our Office: If you showed up one day, you might find anything from karaoke performances to mini-golf championships.
