The Account Manager is equal parts relationship management, sales, and client satisfaction. You will be responsible for owning a portfolio of accounts, executing renewals contracts, and upsell opportunities.

This role will manage an assigned set of customers with a focus on maintaining and growing renewal rates and establishing relationships with a focus on retention and identification of upsell and expansion opportunities. You will work with the Sales and Customer Success teams to identify growth opportunities and provide insights that improve future outcomes.
