Silverfin reinvents the way financial advisors work. Our cloud-based technology allows accountancy firms and financial advisors to streamline significant parts of their workload and spend more time on value adding activities.

Growing rapidly since our founding year in 2013, we have completed Series A and Series B funding rounds. These funds are used to accelerate our international expansion. Originated in Belgium, we have successfully launched activities in the Benelux, UK and Nordics, and are about to enter additional markets across Europe and globally.

We have an exciting opportunity to work in a growing and evolving Customer Success Team, with aspirations of becoming a truly world class organisation.

As a Customer Success Manager (CSM), your key focus is to drive value, adoption and retention of your customers’ investment. Success of this role is defined by the customer deriving consistent value from Silverfin, resulting in the renewal and growth of their investment over time. You will build a strong internal network, partnering and collaborating closely with the wider team to ensure the customer receives best in class engagement.

Responsibilities

  • Engagement Cadence – Maintain a regular engagement cadence with the customer and customer executives that covers all phases of the post‐purchase customer journey from Onboarding to Value Realisation to Renewal. Create a Success Plan that outlines the customer’s business goals and adoption activities needed to meet that goal. Lead regular Business Reviews to track progress against the customer’s goals.
  • Building Community – Driving engagement and champions across the broader customer network, and leading initiatives such as Connected Friday’s, Webinars, Workshops etc.

  • Adoption Metrics – Leverage data to track the success of your adoption activities. This will include creating an Adoption Map laying out the groups of users leveraging Silverfin, the key sponsors, champions, use cases and value that Silverfin is providing. Conduct capability assessments using our customer maturity model to understand where the customer is on their journey of adopting Silverfin and identify areas the customer needs to invest in.
  • Support Advocacy – Work closely with the customer and internal support teams to manage expectations based on their support agreement with Silverfin. When necessary, act as the point of escalation for customer support issues.
