Customer Success Director

Avant-garde Health enables hospitals and physicians to understand and improve their care processes, costs, and outcomes by utilizing technology and data analytics. We are a mission-driven business that grows out of the value-based health care research at Harvard Business School. We just closed our Series A and have raised over $17M in total. We are backed by General Catalyst, Fulcrum Equity Partners, Founder Collective, Tectonic Ventures, and Sparta Group. We are working with a number of the top hospitals in the country, and our customer net promoter score is +92.

Avant-garde Health works closely with hospital executives and clinicians to identify and pursue opportunities for delivering higher quality, more cost-effective health care. As a Customer Success Director, you will serve as the external face of the company to provide a "white-glove" client experience to an assigned set of customer accounts. In this role, clients will value you as a trusted partner, working collaboratively at every stage of the post-sale lifecycle – from onboarding and training, to opportunity discovery, action planning, implementation, and monitoring. You'll use your strong technical, business, and analytical skills to provide direct assistance to clients to leverage Avant-garde’s proprietary analytics software-as-a-service to pinpoint inefficiencies and translate insights into action. By working this closely with your clients, you'll be able to identify opportunities to expand our relationships within each customer account. The Director will drive client engagement, inform strategy, guide impact, and grow client relationships. Customer engagement (NPS scores), retention, upsells, and account expansion are measured for success in this role. This position reports to the Chief Operating Officer. If you enjoy creating an impact on how health care professionals use data to drive patient care best practices, improve outcomes, and reduce costs, then we want to hear from you.
