Customer Success Manager at Raisely

Remote remote support full-time
Posted 8 days ago

Raisely powers online fundraising for ambitious charities across the world. We’re a mission-driven remote team, spread across 5 countries and 7 cities.

We’re growing rapidly, but we’re not just any high-growth startup. Here you’ll have the flexibility of working from wherever you’re happy, supported by a passionate, talented team. You’ll use your skills to help charities of all sizes raise money to fund their important work, all while building a well-balanced company that puts values first.

If you’re excited about the challenge of a high-growth startup, and want your work to have a huge impact on the world, then we hope you’ll consider working with us.

We’re Raisely! We help charities raise money online. Our platform helps charities build fundraising campaigns, run donation appeals, and nurture their supporters. We make it easy to get started and scale-up, without needing technical help.

We started Raisely because charities have been underserved by technology for too long. We set out to change that, and so far we’ve helped raise over $100m.

We’re a team of 13-turning-20 as we rapidly grow our company (and impact). With your help, we’re hoping to raise $1bn in the next few years and rapidly scale out, supporting charities small and large in countries across the world.

Oh and one more thing. We walk this impact talk. We’re a proud B-corp, and purpose is baked into our constitution. We’re carbon neutral, and we’re starting our anti-racism journey to ensure we’re actively undoing centuries of systemic racism.

As a Customer Success Manager at Raisely you’ll be a trusted advisor and point of contact for key charities on the Raisely platform. The brief is simple, ensure every charity you work with on Raisely is able to run successful, innovative fundraising campaigns.

You’ll wear a few hats, from project manager, to fundraising consultant, to digital marketer, to product expert. You’ll be proactive, regularly holding review and check-in calls with your customers, running training sessions, reviewing campaigns before they go live, and recommending how things could be improved. You’ll advocate for your customers within Raisely, and keep them informed as we improve our platform.

Beyond charities, you’ll also manage relationships with some of our expert partners, looping in technical resources when needed, and ensuring they’re able to use the Raisely platform to provide value for their own clients.

Finally, you’ll get the chance to share your fundraising and digital smarts with all of Raisely’s customers, through blog posts on fundraising best-practice, working with our team on new setup guides, and by participating in our regular webinars.

You’re an expert digital fundraiser

You know and understand digital fundraising. You’ve run a large fundraising campaign before, start to finish. You know what’s involved in the set-up of an appeal page or campaign microsite, and what to look for before you go live. You’ve got experience setting up marketing automation, reviewing analytics, and monitoring key campaign health metrics. You can guide people towards best practices, and speak from experience.

You’re a superb communicator

Ok, you may not be a budding novelist but you love words and you know how to communicate things clearly, succinctly and effectively. ‘Cause after all, written communication is what we live and breathe in a remote team, and in customer success. You’ll need to be able to think on your feet during a consultation call with a customer, and write a clear and considered email

You’re good at juggling

You’re not phased by needing to juggle lots of different priorities and tasks, and you understand how important it is to keep people in the loop. Your reliability is rock-solid, you get back to your customers super fast, and you’re always looking for ways to add value. You think it’s good to be busy.

You care about making a difference

Yeah, we’re all here because we want to make the world better (and by that we mean a carbon neutral utopia with world peace and just laws, where all people are treated the same with equal opportunity to thrive). So you’ve gotta want that too!

Plus, the more you help us grow, the bigger our impact gets. And by that we’re talking hundreds of millions of dollars big.

Working at Raisely is unique. If you have a great idea, we’ll help you make it happen. You'll play a pivotal role in the success of hundreds of fundraising campaigns on our platform, and help shape our company as we grow.
