Job Description

About the job

Alma originally started out by serving Small and Medium Businesses (<1M€ turnover) and today 80% of our merchants still come from this segment. It is a strategic segment for Alma (and the small clients of today are also the big clients of tomorrow), thus, we need to maximise the volumes to make it a key performance driver in the long run.

The Customer Success team (2 people today) has a key mission to drive the growth and ensure the retention of a pool of SMB merchants. Thanks to prioritisation criteria, our CSM team will contact specific merchants to close upsell opportunities or manage negotiations to avoid churn.

On a daily basis, the CSS will jump on calls with merchants (& write emails), optimise processes and highly collaborate with other teams (e.g. Product, Finance, Risk & Support) to constantly improve our solution and delight a long tail of merchants.

About the mission

As a Customer Success Specialist, your missions will be to:

  • Deal with a pool of SMB merchants (Small & Medium-sized Businesses) with an "at-scale approach
  • Contact merchants with upsell opportunities and analyse their performance by digging into data to provide meaningful business insights and opportunities
  • Share merchants’ feedback within the organisation to enable Alma to constantly better meet merchants’ needs
  • Negotiation: contact at-risk merchants. Understand their needs and identify ways to address them to increase business performance and satisfaction
  • Contribute to building and automating processes to ensure clear expectations on 90% spent on the business/run part
