Solution Architect – Customer Success & Onboarding
Klaviyo has a unique take on the Solution Architect role. While most companies hire SAs to give demos, fill out questionnaires, and explain basic setups, that makes us yawn. We built a product that anyone can use (just ask our more than 100,000 customers) and we have smart sales reps and customer success colleagues who are true product experts.
So what do we do? We work directly with a small percentage of prospective and existing customers, alongside our sales & customer success teams, as customer-facing engineers to accelerate complex deals and customer value. We use these engagements as an opportunity to learn, prototype, and ship meaningful improvements to the Klaviyo experience. We look for interesting problems and aim for solutions that are extensible and reusable.
A few things our team has recently built as part of sales and customer engagements include: new productised integrations; modular ETL packages; a library of custom functions for importing data via API into Google Sheets; demo environments that continuously receive data in real-time; and a custom Chrome extension. In short, we are problem-solvers and builders. We believe simple things should be easy and hard things should be possible.
If you’re an entrepreneurial builder that gets excited by driving technical success and prototyping new solutions – all within the context of actual customer engagements – this could be for you. What you’ll get in return is the opportunity to be part of an extremely high-performing, strategically-important team that works at the exciting intersection of engineering, sales, and customer success.
This Solution Architect will work specifically with our Customer Success and Onboarding Specialist teams to drive technical success when customers onboard with Klaviyo and become tenured customers.
