Paddle offers SaaS companies a completely different approach to their payment infrastructure. Instead of assembling and maintaining a complex stack of payments-related apps and services, we’re a Merchant of Record for our customers. That means we take away 100% of the pain of payment fragmentation. It’s faster, safer, cheaper, and, above all, way better.
We’re backed by investors including KKR, FTV Capital, Kindred, Notion, and 83North and serve over 3000 software sellers in 245 territories globally.
Paddle’s business is growing fast, successfully winning business at larger and more complex B2B SaaS organisations. Its recent acquisition of ProfitWell brought with it ProfitWell Retain, the industry leading solution for retention and churn reduction. As the first Retain CSM, we’re looking for someone to build more sophisticated processes to manage our customers efficiently, help them drive their own business successfully, and build long-term strategic relationships. We are looking for a CSM who has experience advising SaaS businesses on their growth, driving NRR and building a strong customer advocacy base.
As a Senior CS Manager, you will be responsible for the growth (upsell/renewals), retention, and advocacy of our largest customers. You’ll be managing relationships with Paddle’s key Retain customers who are based across the globe. You’ll play the key role in driving retention optimizations, advising our customer portfolio on retention and churn prevention strategies, and ensuring the retention of our top existing customers.
