About Anaplan

We’re building truly hardcore, high-end technology. From our calculation engine and in-memory data store, to apps and predictive analytics, amazing technology is being developed every day. 

We’re addressing a $100B/year problem for global businesses. It’s challenging—and its fun. We work hard, and we love to see our efforts paying off.

With 850+ customers and 100% growth year-over-year, Anaplan’s software is solving some of the most complex challenges in the business world. CEOs, analysts, and the press agree—Anaplan is changing the way the world does business.

See more about Anaplan here and how we have been recognized as a company here.

Our mission is to break the traditional business planning models, currently performed through spreadsheets or old legacy systems, and replace them with Anaplan’s Business Planning Cloud Platform, enabling customers to use it as their spine of decision-making right across their connected company. 

CORE RESPONSIBILITIES

This is a business-critical position within our customer success function running a global team of strategic consultants that serve Anaplan customers and partners in the successful implementation of Anaplan Platform subscriptions. Customers depend on this position to provide an excellent customer experience with Anaplan. Ensuring they receive the maximum value and benefit out of Anaplan planning software solutions to make their business smarter, more competitive and leaders in their industry.

CORE RESPONSIBILITIES

In this role, you will drive and lead customer resources to assess, design, build and deliver commercially viable Anaplan planning and analytics solutions. Your role will be to own a portfolio of Anaplan customers and ensure their continual success. Your first order of business with a new client is to ensure a smooth and rapid first implementation in line with the processes the customer wants to manage inside the Anaplan Platform.

You’ll be someone who is not afraid to advise a company or your team members, in Sales Operations one day, then HR the next. Anaplan’s Platform is diverse across multiple use cases and industries. We truly go across the entire business so you’ll need to be flexible and have at least a decent knowledge of business process. 

It means you need to take all your experience in business process, technology and client management and combine them to guide and manage the customer and your team members to an appropriate solution. It sometimes means you need to re-direct a customer or team member in the most tactful way possible in order for them to have a smooth first implementation. You also need to ‘teach the customer to fish’. It means you need to make them self-sufficient so that they can expand beyond their first process in Anaplan and quickly make Anaplan their spine of decision making in the business.
