Hello! My name is Kyle and I head up the Partners Team at Customer.io. We’re taking on a new effort to grow our ecosystem of qualified agency partners. Agency partners play an important role at Customer.io – from supporting our customers who require extra services, to creating introductions to their clients, and enabling our team to continue to grow the things our agencies do well – and now we’re looking to expand upon that.
We’re looking for a Channel Account Manager who can help support our partners, train and guide on Customer.io and #agencylife best practices, with a focus on stimulating new sales for Customer.io through these relationships.

- Sales and public speaking are something you understand and enjoy

- You enjoy the process of setting challenging goals and creating a plan to hit them
What we’re looking for:
- A background in software, working with or along side an agency
- You’ve worked in sales at some point in your career

- Flexibility to adjust your day-to-day to fit with the most critical tasks on hand
- Personal success stories of building partner programs that drove positive ROI
- Thirst for knowledge, a hunger for continuous learning, and innate curiosity

- Learning + development – Up to $2,000 USD reimbursement per year to use on conferences, books, classes, or workshops – anything that will help you develop your skills
- 1 month paid sabbatical after four years at Customer.io – to treat yourself to a vacation, or spend however you choose
- Company retreats twice a year – we typically get together IRL every spring and fall, but most recently had an amazing virtual retreat!
- Flexible schedule, work anywhere you want! – as long as you have a reliable internet connection and some overlapping work time with your manager, you can work where and when you want
All final candidates will be asked to complete an employment and education verification authorization form (which allows us to verify your job history and education listed on your resume) as part of our pre-employment process.
