Our Mission:

6sense is on a mission to revolutionize how B2B organizations create revenue by predicting customers most likely to buy and recommending the best course of action to engage anonymous buying teams. 6sense Revenue AI is the only sales and marketing platform to unlock the ability to create, manage and convert high-quality pipeline to revenue.

Our People:

People are the heart and soul of 6sense. We serve with passion and purpose. We live by our Being 6sense values of Accountability, Growth Mindset, Integrity, Fun and One Team. Every 6sensor plays a part in defining the future of our industry-leading technology. 6sense is a place where difference-makers roll up their sleeves, take risks, act with integrity, and measure success by the value we create for our customers.

We want 6sense to be the best chapter of your career.

The Role:

Imagine a solution that will predict for your customers (with an 85% accuracy) who is going to buy, what they’ll buy, and when. As a Senior Strategic Customer Success Manager at 6sense, you’ll be an instrumental player to our growth as we build upon the success we’ve had delivering predictions for Fortune 500 customers. We will trust you to own our highest profile customer advisory relationships, drive technical competency, ensure rapid deployment to demonstrate measurable results and long-term customer value, and create a culture of customer success at 6sense.

The Company:

“We’ve been on a mission to fundamentally change the way revenue teams go to market and achieve success – and it’s time now to accelerate our vision.” – Jason Zintak, CEO. There’s an explosion of data as B2B buyers shift their buying to the web, but making sense of this data alone is no small feat. The data-driven sales and marketing organizations that align around the tools to leverage this data will have competitve dominance in their markets. At the forefront of the hottest space (ABM and predictive intelligence) within the fastest growing tech segment (marketing tech), lies 6sense.

At 6sense, we transform the way companies create, manage, and convert pipeline to revenue. We are a platform powering the Rev Tech Revolution. We are clearing the way for marketing, operations, and sales professionals to reach new heights of efficiency and success. We are solving a hard problem that delivers unquestionable, game-changing ROI (read; big deals and a path to get there). Forrester and G2 Crowd have named 6sense as a leader in Predictive Marketing Analytics and ABM, and we have been named a Best Workplace by Inc Magazine for the third year in a row. Having recently raised $200M in Series E funding at a $5.2B valuation (backed by Blue Owl, MSD Partners, D1 Capital Partners, Sapphire Ventures, Tiger Global, Insight Partners, SoftBank Vision Fund 2, B Capital Group, Franklin Templeton, and Harmony Partners), we are investing heavily in our product, our customers, and rapidly growing the customer success team on across the US.
