About Us

Simon Data was founded in 2015 by a team of successful serial entrepreneurs. We are an enterprise customer data platform that empowers marketers to create personalized data-driven experiences for the customers. We’re scrappy problem solvers who believe in tackling big challenges with disruptive thinking and giving our customers the support they need to deliver great next-generation experiences at scale.

Simon Data is a data-first customer experience orchestration platform, designed to disrupt the marketing technology and marketing cloud category. Simon’s platform empowers businesses to use enterprise-scale data and machine learning to power customer communications across every channel. Our unique approach allows brands to develop one-to-one relationships with their customers without building a bespoke in-house data infrastructure.

At Simon, we firmly believe that business success starts and ends with people. We all do our best work when we are surrounded by other friendly top performers who want to succeed together. This attitude is core to our values. When you trust your team, invest in their development, and give them ownership, great things happen.

The Role

The Strategic Account Manager role is all about ensuring that Simon’s largest, most sophisticated clients extract as much value out of our platform and services as possible. As the owner of a portfolio of strategic accounts, you are accountable for the success of each partnership; which you will ensure by devising creative and thoughtful strategies for delivering material business value and marshalling the cross-functional resources required to execute against those strategies.

You will develop deep, trusted relationships as you work with customers across every phase of the client lifecycle - from integration and onboarding, to campaign ideation, launch, and iteration, to partnership review and contract renewal.
