Customer Journey

Job description

Hi, we are Samotics! With our unique, AI-driven solution we help many of the world's largest industrial companies reduce energy waste, water pollution events and unplanned downtime. Join us in our mission to make industrial companies more sustainable.

About the team 👋
As the Lead Asset Reliability Specialist (ARS), you will be a crucial member of the Customer Success Management (CSM) department. The broader customer success organization at Samotics is responsible for the implementation, adoption and success of our solution at our customers. The Lead ARS plays a crucial role in delivering the value of our condition monitoring service to our customers.

It is the ARS Team's responsibility to work closely together with our customers and understand in detail the monitored electric machines, driven equipment (pumps, conveyors, fans, compressors, etc.) and processes in which these operate. Based on this understanding, they will analyze the alarms that are triggered by our algorithms on upcoming failures, diagnose the best situation and advise the customer on adequate maintenance actions in order to prevent failure and unplanned downtime. The Team is the customer’s first point of contact, when it comes to any outstanding alerts on the monitored assets.

Your challenge 🎯

  1. You will act as the leader of this team: Dividing the workload among your team members, assuring the quality of the work delivered, tracking performance of the team, helping your team members grow personally and professionally, writing performance reviews and representing the team in broader company meetings

  2. We also expect you to carry part of the load yourself. We believe you can only excel as a Leader by also doing the actual work. This means you will also be responsible for monitoring the assets of a subset of our customers, doing the analysis and diagnosis and communicating with our customers.

  3. Finally, you will be responsible for the continuous improvement of the ARS processes and the service the team delivers to our customers. You will proactively find opportunities, assess the feasibility and implement. In this regard, you will work closely with our Data Scientists and Electrical Signature Specialists on improving our detection capabilities and with our Product Teams on improving our tooling and dashboarding.
