Customer Success Manager (Databricks)

At Databricks, we make Big Data simple. The state-of-the-art in Big Data is “simple things complex, complex things impossible.” We think the future should be “simple things easy, and complex things possible.” Join us and work with world’s leading experts in distributed systems, databases, and networking to help build a next-generation Big Data platform that users love.

We are looking for a Customer Success Manager who understands the value of nurturing customer relationships. You will ultimately be responsible for engaging with customers post-sales, driving user adoption and satisfaction and ensuring high retention. The customer engagement team at Databricks is in charge of leading the adoption of Apache Spark and Databricks Cloud with our customers. A critical part of this mission is ensuring that our users have a fantastic experience with Databricks Cloud during the entire customer lifecycle, and make it a rapidly growing component of their data-driven operations.

We’re currently looking for ambitious new hires that bring together a passion for and understanding of Big Data technologies, strong analytics capabilities, and a spike in relationship management to help stand-up and grow this function within our team.

Databricks’ vision is to empower anyone to easily build and deploy advanced analytics solutions. The company was founded by the team who created Apache® Spark™, a powerful open source data processing engine built for sophisticated analytics, ease of use, and speed. Databricks is the largest contributor to the open source Apache Spark project providing 10x more code than any other company. The company has also trained over 20,000 users on Apache Spark, and has the largest number of customers deploying Spark to date. Databricks provides a just-in-time data platform, to simplify data integration, real-time experimentation, and robust deployment of production applications.
