At iboss, we believe that exceptional employees are the key to our success. Our teams are hands-on, diverse, nimble and highly empowered to drive excellence. Come be a part of the team that will transform the way cybersecurity is delivered!
Technical Account Manager will play an advisory role to customers, build long-term strategic relationships with customers and partners and have a mission of ensuring that iboss customers achieve their desired outcomes through the interactions they have with our product and team members. Customer Success Engineers will work with government, K12, commercial and enterprise customers via live chat, email, web-based ticket systems, telephone, and in some cases in-person interactions. Interactions are primarily proactive, outbound, and on a customer-defined cadence. You will assist customers with designing, integrating, implementing, and training on iboss products and services. In this role you can expect to be very hands-on with technology and will also be responsible for the commercial aspects of the relationship which includes renewing and expanding the services that customers subscribe to. You will be a technical customer advocate; internally partnering with product management, engineering, and R&D resources to influence the product roadmap in alignment with feedback acquired in the field directly from customers.
An ideal candidate for this role will have a wide breadth of knowledge and experience with enterprise networks, systems, cybersecurity and sales engineering or technical account management. An outstanding candidate understands the challenges that administrators face when trying to secure users and devices in today’s borderless network landscape and have a track record of solving problems. If you have an innate curiosity to understand how systems work (and could possibly be abused), a drive to find creative solutions to problems others may think are impossible to solve, are comfortable in a fast paced, challenging environment, and are driven to provide customer satisfaction, we want to hear from you. We’ll provide the opportunity for you to work with some of the largest and most complex networks on the planet providing a service that helps protect organizations and users from threats.
