About Harvest

Harvest is an independent software company making tools that help businesses run more smoothly. For the past 16 years, our customers have relied on our products as a critical part of their day-to-day operations. They’re the reason we’re still in business and we owe it to them to deliver legendary support, provided by the Harvest Experts and Customer Success Managers who make up our services team: wicked-smart human being, empathetic problem-solvers, and patient troubleshooters.

The Harvest team started as a team of 3 and grew slowly to today’s current total of 74 lovely faces. We have always been remote-friendly, and are now a completely remote organizations – but we have always hired the best people for the job no matter where they hang their hats. We work hard to make sure everyone feels included and heard. And we offer great benefits, including individual performance and company bonuses, a generous vacation policy, paid parental leave, 401k matching, and much more.Harvest is building out our Customer Success team, and we are looking for a self-motivated, inquisitive individual with a panache for teaching and helping others reach their goals to help us continue our record of legendary customer service, but with a proactive twist.


What’s the job, and what makes it so special?

One of the best parts of joining Harvest at this time is that this function is brand new. There is plenty to learn, lots of space to try new things, and loads to share – both with our customers and with Harvest as a whole. You’ll be part of the human face of the company and will develop a deep understanding of our products and customers. You’ll also partner with our support specialists, product managers, and engineers to help them understand and analyze where customers are having issues. We believe our customers deserve the best of all things, and your curiosity, thoughtfulness, and attention to detail will help make sure they are as successful as possible.

There’s more below on the nitty-gritty of the role, but here’s the short version:

  • You’ll love this job if you are curious, delighted to help others, revved up about starting customers down the right path, and excited to offer new ideas and insights as to how we can best do our jobs.
  • We’ll love you if your a quick learner who’s also enthusiastic, kind, driven, and so reliable that we can set our watches by how regularly you kick ass.

Not to brag, *ahem*, but this is a really awesome, full-time job. The benefits are great, the working arrangements are flexible, and your coworkers are all crazy-smart, determined, and (above all) kind.

Who should apply?

You, probably.

You have a background in Customer Success, and that’s a great start. Other than that, we want people on our team that bring something new to the table. Our customers aren’t all the same, so why should we be? If your empathy muscles are strong, your presentation skills are on point, and your comma splice game is locked down, you belong here. The Customer Experience org is filled with all different kinds of people – from a former dog walker, to a German translator, to an art curator.

One more thing, and this is a big deal: if you are a member of a group that is historically underrepresented and disadvantaged in tech (and society generally), please know that we welcome your application with open and enthusiastically-waving arms. We want to meet you!

And while we’re on the topic, if you don’t celebrate people’s differences and don’t value the contributions of those who don’t look, sound, or act like you, Harvest isn’t going to be a good fit. When we come to work, we bring our full selves because that contributes to both the vibrancy and richness of our team. So if you want to work here, you should be actively excited about working with a group of people who strive to be inclusive.

Please note that this is not an entry-level position – we absolutely need someone who has been a CSM before to bring their experience and mastery to bear with our largest customers. However, we do want you to know that there is plenty of room to grow here! Depending on your motivation, experience, and skill development, potential paths for future growth include working as a partner in a development cycle, writing documentation or blog posts, or other support-related projects. If the job sounds exciting to you, please apply!
