Your mission as an Onboarding Lead

As a pivotal bridge between Oper and our enterprise customers, your mission will be to guarantee a seamless transition for our customers from signed contract to getting first value out of the platform and thus reaching their objectives. You will play a crucial role from pre-sales to the realisation of initial value, ensuring customer requirements are meticulously understood and met.

Your role & responsibilities:

  • Lead with Confidence: Guide onboardings of our customers from start to finish, making sure we stick to our plans and timelines. This means you will cover all aspects needed to onboard a customer ranging from project management to configuration of the platform and training end users.
  • Be the Customers’ Champion: Listen to our customers, understand their needs, and make sure we're doing our best to meet them, even when things get tricky.
  • Solve problems before they happen: Spot potential issues early and find ways to get around them without derailing the project.
  • Turn customer needs into action: Make sure we really understand what the customer needs to reach their objectives and turn those needs into clear steps for our team to follow. This can be 1) out-of-the-box features 2) configuration of existing features or 3) new features that need to be implemented by the product team.
  • Work well with others: Make sure all the different teams in our company (like Go-to-market and Product) are on the same page so we can deliver top-notch experiences to our customers.
  • Always be improving: Look for ways to make our processes even better, to reduce time-to-value for our customers and take the lead in making those improvements happen.

In this role, you'll steer the ship, making sure our onboardings are running smoothly, our customers are happy, and our team is always moving forward. It's a big job, but we know you've got what it takes to lead our clients and ourselves to success!
