Are you an Experienced Customer Success Manager in the Technology Sector? Are you seeking a career-expanding opportunity to apply your relentless customer focus, extreme ownership mindset and singular focus on customer outcomes? Are you fearless in commanding cooperation at all levels internally and externally to drive continuous customer value?
If so, then this opportunity is the one you have been waiting for. Here at Splunk, we are changing the way that data and information is used to drive business decisions as we bring data to everything.
A Splunk Enterprise CSM (E-CSM) is a Senior Customer Advocate, accountable for:
Driving our most strategic, complex leading edge customer engagements to high-value outcomes for the customer.
Developing and maintaining a deep understanding of our customers’ value-drivers, short, medium and long-term priorities, decision-making ecosystem, influence and control points that steer the relationship towards successful initial outcomes and growth.
Aligning our Splunk-internal ecosystem in pursuit of the objective outcomes; both by proactively anticipating customer needs as well as reactively rallying the required resources whenever any risk to a successful customer outcome is indicated.
Fearlessly and expertly guiding our customer ecosystem at every level - from technical champion to executive - along an engagement path that exemplifies best practice, optimizes for outcomes and eschews unnecessary risk in the implementation and adoption path.
Partner with the regional sales team to develop strategic adoption strategies for our largest and most strategic customers.
Ability to articulate value-based differentiators of Splunk’s products and solutions with a goal to make existing use cases sticky and farm new use cases to grow Splunk’s install base
Experience in large scale IT or security shops
Self-motivated with a consistent track record in managing programs and a firm knowledge of how technology drives our customer’s business
Strong ability to collaborate and dynamic presentation skills
Ability to create and present in quarterly business reviews to an executive audience
Ability to be organized and analytical, and will be able to eliminate adoption obstacles using creative and adaptive approaches.
Comfortable working for a dynamic technical organization with large customers who will stretch our technology through scale or new and unusual use-cases
Takes extreme ownership of their customer’s success
You should have a strong sense of self-motivation, an insatiable curiosity about what “is possible” with technology, the desire to work with an awesome team, and a positive/fun-loving attitude.

Experienced, tenured, SaaS-focused CSM with a track record of delivering technology-based outcomes in Fortune 500 Customers.
Proven track record working at an Executive (C-Suite) Level in both the Customer and Vendor side, advocating for and securing engagement and commitment at that level.
Not necessarily a Technical Seller, but adeptly able to connect the Splunk Value Proposition at a component level to customer pain/value, and be extremely comfortable explaining the value of general use cases across Security, IT Ops, DevOps and general Observability domains to customer counterparts with Economic decision maker Personas. While not a hands-on-keyboard role, the job will necessarily expose the E-CSM to technical personas and management where above-basic domain knowledge will be key to maintain credibility.
A programmatic mindset: able to establish clear outcomes for any customer journey (including risk avoidance and remediation), establish clear milestone-based plans towards the objective and engage the Splunk Internal and Customer ecosystem on the path, with accountabilities and deliverables clearly defined.
Thought Leadership: bringing their own experience to bear on guiding the customer’s path to next value, and recognizing the opportunities to bring other roles to bear to deepen the business and technical conversation and surface new potential.
