Our company culture represents an intermix between passion for technology, rock star output, and appreciation for a balanced, healthy lifestyle. Our Vision is to build and maintain a community that respects, values, and celebrates our individuality; fosters an inclusive and equitable experience for all; and empowers us to be our authentic selves each day.

Bluescape provides virtual workspaces for hybrid and remote teams to meet and interact with all of their mission critical content and data. We’re all entrepreneurs here no matter what role you are in, so if you want to work on interesting projects with smart, collaborative people and contribute towards a cool and innovative product, then we want to hear from you!


We view adoption through the lens of human behavior change. It’s a challenge to get people to change the way they work. Because voluntary, discretionary effort is required from employees to use collaboration apps, we place a heavy emphasis on high touch coaching and consumer style communications that change perception about why Bluescape is a good use of their time. We spend a lot of time understanding the needs of customers and key stakeholders using a well proven discovery process that identifies their business outcomes to produce industrial strength adoption plans. Content also plays a big role in driving adoption. We use a community centric model that puts conversations around a wide range of self-learning content, connects customers to each other to exchange product knowledge and best practice, and provides access to Bluescape’s experts.


You’ll have a background in customer success with a SaaS vendor delivering post-sale motions of activation, adoption, expansion, and renewal with an emphasis on public sector and government customers. You will also have a working knowledge of how organizations of all sizes implement change. Ideally, you’ll be an expert user of collaboration software, its features, operation and roll out characteristics, able to professionally train others not only on how to become better collaborators but also to be trainers themselves. The ability to communicate with all levels of seniority is key as is the ability to conduct individual and group coaching sessions online and on-site.


Customer Success Managers at Bluescape have a breadth of customer-facing responsibilities, serving as Trusted Advisors throughout the entire customer lifecycle from pre-sales and product activation to adoption, expansion, and renewal. You will be responsible for ensuring customers receive desired outcomes from Bluescape by providing services that create high levels of sustained adoption. You’ll be passionate about designing and delivering high touch, live product demonstrations and training sessions.

This role will focus on Bluescape’s growing public sector customers with their internal adoption of Bluescape. A high level of emotional intelligence, creative problem-solving, and strong communications skills are essential as well as a genuine desire to help customers and their employees change the way they work.
