Customer Success Manager (UK) - Edinburgh or Remote (UK), Scotland, United Kingdom

About us

We’re an award-winning enterprise software scale-up with high ambitions for growth. We recently won the ScotlandIS Digital Tech Scale-up Business of the Year award and have previously been recognised as Scotland’s fastest-growing tech company in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 for three consecutive years.   

Dayshape is an advanced resource management solution, incorporating AI and intelligent automation to help professional services firms optimise their workforce like never before.  It’s built to handle large, complex, and ever-changing requirements with ease. 

Our customers include accountancy firms from the Big Four and global top 10, and Dayshape is used in more than 25 countries across four continents. Our target customers are global firms, international networks, and large national or regional organisations, if they’re big enough to have the challenges that Dayshape can solve. 

As a company, we live our values every day and we're committed to making sure our friendly and inclusive environment grows with us. 


About the role

We are incredibly proud that over 6+ years we have not experienced customer churn; working as our customers strategic partners and trusted advisors to ensure they’re getting maximum ROI from Dayshape is crucial to maintaining that achievement.  

This role is specifically focused on supporting our existing UK and Europe based customers and is very much part of building for success in the future as we implement our expansion plans and win new logos. We are very product focused and don’t always follow traditional CS methods. We sell a single, premium product and as such don’t have the pressure to cross sell and upsell. Instead, our focus is on user adoption and driving value and managing the commercial relationships with our customers. Our CSM’s each have a small number of accounts and have the time and space to really get to know our customers and their business processes.

  • Develop and maintain a detailed understanding of the customer’s organisation, including strategic goals/initiatives, key stakeholders, and how Dayshape ties into all of this.

  • Provide demos and/or webinars to broad audiences to showcase new features and/or encourage adoption. 
  • Work closely with our Support team to understand each customers’ current support status and KPI performance to ensure high levels of customer satisfaction.

  • Work alongside and support other CSMs to: 
    • Provide a feedback loop to our Product department to help them better understand customer needs and shape the roadmap accordingly. 
    • Ensure our enhancement backlog is appropriately prioritised and representative of the needs of all our customers. 
    • Manage user numbers, process subscription renewals (annually), and run/manage/monitor other critical KPIs. 
  • Own the commercial relationship with the customer including hosting QBRs and using these to discuss key opportunities relating to upcoming renewals, expansions or additional countries that may require Dayshape’s services.

About you

  • Highly motivated by ensuring our customers are successful and get the most out of the product, whilst being able to balance this with Dayshape’s commercial priorities and opportunities that will arise with your customers.
  • Can demonstrate in-depth understanding of how enterprise software is configured and used within large and/or complex organisations. 
  • Able to challenge customers’ thinking in order to help them achieve their goals, taking ownership and leading the conversation/situation when required.

  • Able to translate technical needs/payoffs into commercial benefits and vice versa. 
  • Genuinely interested and curious in business operations and how different organisations work.

Working Details

This is a full-time role (37.5 hours per week). We typically work from 09:00 - 17:30 from Monday to Friday, though we can be flexible around this, just let us know.  

We’re ideally looking for someone in/around Edinburgh, though we’re open to the possibility of this being a remote role (as long as you're in the UK). We're making the most of hybrid working, so you won't need to come into the office everyday (unless you want to!).  

We don't mandate required office time, but we find that most of the team enjoy working from home 3-4 days a week, and come into our office to connect with each other, make use of space, and for meetings. 

Join the team!

Equality of opportunity is more than just a responsibility: we believe it’s a huge advantage to welcome a variety of experiences and perspectives into the team. Diversity is a great asset and, as such, we strongly encourage applications from any background.

This is your opportunity to play a key role in our CS team and to build on the excellent foundations we’ve established and influence how we continue to grow and achieve our ambitions as part of the overall growth strategy. We're doing well, and there's lots more to achieve in order to maintain the high bar and pace we've set.

Everyone here is growing personally as the company grows, so if that sounds like something you’d like to be part of, we’d love to see your application.
