VP of Customer Success - NYC

| Greater NYC Area
Company Description
At HyperScience we develop and deliver intelligent solutions to automate manual document processing for global financial services, insurance, healthcare, and government organizations. Founded in 2014, our solution extracts handwritten, cursive and printed typed text at better-than-human levels of accuracy and automation that get better over time. By streamlining operations and reducing the costs associated with data entry, we enable some of the world’s largest companies to improve customer service and drive new business opportunities.
With more than $50 million raised to date, we’re growing quickly and looking for individuals to join our team and make a difference in our organization and for our customers.
Job Description
The Customer Success team at HyperScience acts as the customer’s trusted advisor and advocate, building and growing an ongoing healthy relationship with each customer. Team members are responsible for implementing our software, preserving our current business, opening doors for additional opportunities, and growing our customers into life-long HyperScience advocates. The team is split in three verticals: Implementation, Customer Success Management, and Support. The VP of Customer Success defines and leads the team that owns customer relationships. 
We are growing at an extremely fast rate. The leader of the CS team at HyperScience will need to work with the entire leadership team to build highly repeatable processes that will allow us to scale. Our customers are the largest of large enterprises and government organizations in the US and our contract values are equally large. As a result we need a VP who can deploy software in hard settings and communicate the value of that (expensive) software throughout a customer. The leader must be able to work with the entire organization and our board (including our investor base) to drive us through the next few years of aggressive growth plans.
This is a full-time position located in downtown New York City reporting to the Chief Operations Officer.

An Insider's view of HyperScience

What are some social events your company does?

Outside of company-sponsored lunch daily, we do birthday & anniversary celebrations, dessert breaks, and company outings. It’s pretty common to get together for drinks after work or go to karaoke as a team. When our team from Sofia visits, we like to do something social outside the office, whether it’s lunchtime basketball game or rooftop drinks.

John Lee

Talent Acquisition Lead

What projects are you most excited about?

We’re working on building a Machine Learning model that allows our customers to process more types of documents, which will help significantly with their workflow. I’m excited to visit customer on-sites to see how different customers use our product. We’re here to make people’s lives easier so understanding specific use cases is always valuable.

Sarah

Product Designer

What are some things you learned at the company?

Working at a fast-growing startup means that you’ll need to make decisions quickly and decisively, often with limited information. I’m learning that I’ll be wrong at times and this is okay — as long as I recognize why it didn’t work out and quickly pivot. This comes with continuously asking for feedback to make more informed decisions as a team.

Lindsay Bu

Product Operations Associate

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

We operate a growth mentality across all aspects of our business. Every team member is expected to go radically beyond normal expectations. This requires bold ideas coming from everyone. Once we choose a path to follow, we will all get behind it, irrespective of whose idea it was.

Charlie Newark-French

Chief Operating Officer

What makes someone successful on your team?

A successful member of our team is someone who shows up and gives 110% every day, is not afraid to ask for help and uses constructive criticism to better themselves. We represent the entire organization with new clients, and we’re excited to be the first touchpoint that works to understand their pain points and articulate our mission and value.
