CUSTOMER SUCCESS MANAGER (Higher Education, Enterprise, APAC)


We are the innovators, educators, and altogether nice bunch of folk behind the award-winning Learning Journey Platform, PebblePad. Our 17-year journey has seen us consistently push the technology boundaries, build an enviable global customer-base, and gain a reputation for being the kind of company people really like doing business with. Big enough to be trusted by leading organisations across the globe, but small enough to value every team member, it's why our customer-base, just like our team, is growing year on year. If you want to be part of something incredible, and make a difference to future generations of learners, read on.  


As part of our exciting growth plans we are looking for highly-motivated, dynamic people who are passionate about learning, learners and shaping the future of education.

Our global Customer Success team is pivotal in the delivery of our core goal of ensuring our customers are delighted and supported through every step of their journey with us.

  • Build pedagogically-strong and creative-rich templates, workbooks and workflows for customers and for our exemplar store.

  • Provide orientation and training sessions and explain and demonstrate technical workflows and processes, synchronously or asynchronously, using the most appropriate communications channels.


  • Deliver quality service and value to our education customers throughout their lifecycle from enquiry to onboarding to expansion and ultimately to renewal.

  • Become an expert in our products and services to enable our customers to meet their teaching and learning goals as well as their overall business objectives.

  • Contribute to our 24/7 global customer support network to troubleshoot enquiries via ticket, live chat, and phone.

  • Be proactive in anticipating, understanding, and communicating customer needs.

  • Collaborate with Sales, Product and Growth teams to communicate customer needs to ensure success.

  • Work hand in hand with Business Development to identify growth opportunities, promote our services suite and drive expansion.

  • Conduct and lead regular health checks and business reviews with each customer.

  • Be instrumental in managing and championing all customer pilots and proof of concepts together with Business Development and Learning Services.
