Original Shift

Engagement Manager

Original Shift delivers great service and exceeds customer expectations implementing Salesforce CPQ & Billing. Our customers depend on us to deliver the guidance they need, not just what they want to hear. Original Shift experts can identify the optimal combination of features and best practices to produce high-quality build work. Providing the right solutions to solve difficult business problems is at the heart of our company’s drive to achieve unparalleled customer success.

As an Engagement Manager, you orchestrate success for Original Shift customers by building relationships, leveraging data to inform strategy and decisions, delivering sound advice, and driving teams to achieve business results. In this critical role, you’ll drive the adoption, retention, expansion, and overall business vitality of our customers while working with internal teams and stakeholders. Employing a broad range of past experiences, you function in a dual role focused on both account development and account management. Partnering and supporting the project team in its daily operations enables you to build a trusted relationship with our customers and ensure the successful delivery of Salesforce CPQ & Billing projects. You will build on that insight gained to help customers develop business strategies, provide advice on technology solutions, and assist in building roadmaps that include Original Shift services to realize their Quote to Cash vision. As an Engagement Manager, you also ensure our customers are getting the most value out of our solutions and services.

While you develop our key customers, you are working with internal teams to improve processes, tools, and material assets to make customer interactions more efficient and effective as the business grows. You gather feedback from customers about our strengths, challenges, and opportunities, and champion that feedback to internal teams and leaders. Through your experience and industrial wisdom, you continually work towards finding repeatable and scalable ways to ensure we continually deliver to the highest benchmarks of service efficacy and quality. Customers respect and trust you for your ability to simply communicate complex ideas, ask thoughtful questions, listen to various perspectives, and prescribe the most ideal course of action. Project teams view you as a valuable resource who can dig into low-level technical details without losing sight of the broader vision and strategy, while also being an energetic and successful people manager capable of getting the hardest “stuff” done. Leadership appreciates your ability to grow recurring customer relationships that foster long-term revenue streams.
