Do you want to make an impact in a fast growing company? And are you ready for an acceleration in your career? Then read on!


About the team 👋

The Customer Onboarding team consists of a team lead and several Technical Onboarding Specialists with diverse educational and cultural backgrounds. The team plays a crucial role in the customer journey and works closely together with the Customer Success, Sales, and Product Development organization to ensure an exceptional customer journey. The team is the first point of contact for customers, installation parties, and internal stakeholders for any technical installation and project management questions.


Your challenge 🎯

The Technical Onboarding Specialist is focused on making implementation projects for our new customers run smoothly - from relatively small pilot deployments that are completed within a couple of weeks to large-scale roll-outs that run over a period of a year or longer. Managing the installation process, continuously improving, and building relationships with our customers are therefore key aspects of this role. 


You will be responsible for the entire installation and onboarding process; from the kick-off meeting and first installation training to the validation of installed hardware and successful handover to our Customer Success Management team. You’ll maintain the day-to-day contact with the installers at the customers’ sites, obtaining all relevant information, developing and communicating the installation planning, and ensuring progress through excellent communication and problem-solving skills.


More specifically, your most important responsibilities will include:

  • Ensuring our customers have an excellent onboarding experience by unburdening them throughout the installation process;

  • Installation project planning and management: prepare meetings, guard timelines, collect information, monitor site surveys, guide installations, and onboarding;

  • Provide technical troubleshooting assistance when questions or issues arise (e.g. hardware incorrectly installed, insufficient connectivity)

  • Regular contact with all parties involved (Customer, installation parties, Customer Success Managers, Business Development Managers) to ensure correct and successful implementation of our product;

  • Working on continuous improvement projects: identify and work on areas where we can improve that positively impact our product, our customers, the team, and the entire Samotics organization;
