We are looking for the next member of our outstanding customer success team! Customer Success Integration Consultants are responsible for successfully proposing, designing, and delivering integration solutions that enable Shiftboard's workforce scheduling solutions as a key component of enterprise customer ecosystems.

You will design and oversee the delivery of rich data integration workflows between our customers and our existing cloud-based, enterprise-grade SaaS application. As each of our customers and their needs is unique, you will explore complicated requirements and diverse customer platforms as you design and deliver solutions. You will design and create scalable integration workflows to be delivered using technologies ranging from API calls and sFTP flat file transfers through to middleware platforms such as Azure Logic Apps, and Workato. Your duties will include consulting with prospects and customers to enable them to build their own integration solutions leveraging our integration endpoints, as well as proposing direct integration solutions using our middleware platforms. You will engage and collaborate with customers, sales, onboarding, and support resources in customer success, product management, and engineering to achieve these goals.

The position of an integration consultant requires a candidate with a strong understanding of how Human Capital Management (HCM), Workforce Management (WFM), and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) applications interact to form an effective information ecosystem. The candidate will possess strong consulting skills, good knowledge of integration technologies, and be an effective communicator and collaborator. You will work as part of our sales and implementation teams and possess the technical and consultative skills required to participate in designing, selling, and delivering these projects. You will have and/or develop in-depth knowledge of the SchedulePro solution, integration portals and middleware products, and the major HCM, WFM, and ERP applications that Shiftboard's workforce scheduling solutions are typically interfaced with. You envision, scope, and design solutions, then agree on them with customers, sales and delivery teams, and internal development and support resources.You are adept at identifying and managing client issues, answering technical and non-technical customer questions, and educating both internal and customer stakeholders on integration topics.

The integration consultant will also provide feedback to our product management and engineering teams to allow them to develop and refine an effective technical infrastructure and toolsets with which to deliver our integration solutions. In this role, you will partner closely with product management, engineering, and customer success colleagues to prioritize required integration endpoints within Shiftboard's workforce scheduling solutions. With these colleagues, you will define and develop all the customer integration deployment and support services needed to support our customers and our target industries, gaining process efficiencies and reusability of collateral along the way.

Who we're looking for

You have the ability and interpersonal skills to build relationships and trust with new customers, gather the right integration requirements from them, configure appropriate solutions for their needs, liaise with the development team on required software extensions to support integration needs, deliver the integration solution into customers' hands, and leave them confident in using the software. You can perform these functions by working closely with our onboarding teams delivering projects that may involve multiple deployment phases.

You are technically minded, think systematically, and thrive on seeing customer solutions launch successfully (and, of course, you'll have helped define what "success" looks like). You collaborate effectively with colleagues to ensure that our integration solutions support our sales goals and support the overall SchedulePro solutions we implement for our customers. You lead integration developers to build solutions that meet your designs and can understand and quality ensure all the technical deliverables due to your customers.

You understand how to create value by collaborating with product managers and developers to build a productized layer of integration solutions and services. You are a strong team leader who has a successful track record of managing expectations and delivering on commitments. You are organized and logical in your approach because you are responsible for keeping both customer and internal projects on track and driving progress to project timelines.

You want to deliver amazing service. You understand that SaaS businesses sell a service and not just a product - andthat the solution you are designing is for the customers that use it. You look for every opportunity to delight customers and users. You will help look for ways to optimize our integration offerings from sale to post-launch.You know there's no perfect solution, but you feel pretty good when you've come close!
