Want to work with the world’s leading companies to help them digitize their fleets and launch new mobility start-ups? Does picturing yourself on a high-performance team working alongside colleagues with diverse backgrounds as start-up entrepreneurs, new mobility services operators, and management consultants from top firms like McKinsey, PWC, and E&Y sound exciting? Then check out this unique opportunity at Ridecell!

Ridecell has a long history of innovation in the mobility space, from the early days of running the Summon ridesharing service in San Francisco; to powering the carsharing platforms for mobility service operators like BMW, Renault, AAA, and Toyota; to more recently expanding into digitization solutions for large scale fleets with operators like Penske. Ridecell is headquartered in San Francisco with offices in Madrid, Paris, Berlin, and Pune India.

Ridecell is structured with several customer facing teams that work closely together in a “land and expand” model. Our Sales team is responsible for “landing” major new enterprise accounts. Our Customer Launch team works on our deal teams to help position our solution to prospects, and then collaborates closely with customers to design and execute their implementation plan. Our Customer Success team is responsible for “expanding” our existing enterprise customers by influencing them to pursue major initiatives that increase their usage of Ridecell’s platform and/or adopt new Ridecell solutions.

Personal characteristics of individuals who have proven to be a good fit in our dynamic environment include strong strategic thinking skills, an entrepreneurial mindset, the ability to build rapport with customer executives, and a willingness to roll up their sleeves and execute whatever task needs doing. Candidates with backgrounds in management consulting (e.g., McKinsey, BCG, Deloitte, Accenture, etc.), operational roles with large fleets or new mobility start-ups (e.g., ridesharing, carsharing), and customer success strategic roles with enterprise solution SaaS vendors often have the skills and experience needed.

We are currently seeking to add a Strategic Account Manager to our Customer Success team in Europe. The successful candidate will manage one or more key accounts in our Enterprise channel to drive account growth and ongoing engagement and retention. This role reports to the Senior Director of GTM and Customer Launch and will work closely with our Customer Launch, Customer Support, Product, Analytics, Finance, and Development teams.

What you will do:

  • Relationships:  Develop Trusted Advisor relationships with key stakeholders in the customer account

  • Expertise:  Become an expert in Ridecell's solutions and our customer's business in order to:

    • Develop a clear Point of View on how Ridecell can best help the customer achieve their business goals
    • Develop a clear Point of View on how Ridecell can best grow our revenue
  • Planning:  Develop an account plan that is aimed at achieving both the customer’s and Ridecell’s growth objectives.  For example: 

    • In some cases, this might involve helping our customer expand from one business model (e.g., B2C carsharing) to multiple business models (e.g., subscriptions, dealer rentals) 
    • In other cases, this might involve helping our customer take our combined solution to market (e.g., helping them acquire corporate carsharing customers)
  • Execution:  Execute the growth plan:

    • Assist the customer in implementing their growth strategy
    • Proactively promote adoption of Ridecell product extensions and new solutions
    • Respond to customer "Feature Requests" by understanding the customer’s underlying business need, clarifying their priorities, and collaborating with Ridecell’s Product team to define solutions
    • Help in setting and negotiating contract pricing and terms
  • Support:  Serve as the customer’s Single Point of Contact:

    • Assist our Customer Support team in responding to any significant technical issues by taking into account customer specific considerations
    • Respond to customer "How To" requests by demonstrating to customer functional leaders what they can accomplish with our current platform

The outcomes you will achieve:

  • Strong relationships, as evidenced by customer stakeholders’ willingness to provide glowing references to potential customers, partners, and investors
  • Strong contributions to the account's success, as evidenced by acknowledgement from their senior executives that Ridecell played a key role in helping them succeed
  • Strong growth in Ridecell's Annual Recurring Revenue through expansion of the scale of the account's operations and their adoption of new Ridecell solutions

Required Qualifications:

  • Minimum of 5 years’ experience in one or more of the following roles:  B2B account management, business development, management consulting, or project management
  • Minimum 2 years in a B2B account management/customer success role, ideally with an enterprise SaaS vendor, mobility or fleet operator, or management consulting firm

  • Demonstrated ability to establish productive working relationships at all levels and influence change with internal and external business partners
  • Solid project management skills and experience managing large enterprise customers and agile cross functional account teams
  • Ability to maintain a good balance of strategic vision and tactical implementation
  • Strong verbal, written, presentation and interpersonal skills
  • Strong professional ethics and impeccable personal integrity
