Our GXP® Geospatial Solutions business is growing and we are looking for a Customer Success Officer to join the team. If you are passionate about working with cutting-edge technology and are looking for your next career move in the Geospatial Intelligence domain, then read on.


You will most likely have experience in a military role perhaps as an Intelligence analyst, specialising in imagery, video, all source or open source, within national security or perhaps NATO and be ready for a role that offers travel throughout the EMEA regions and  internationally and the opportunity to work on BAE Systems' GXP® software solutions.


Delivering an unrivalled capacity for discovery, exploitation, and dissemination of mission-critical geospatial data. From key military, security, and incident response operations, to a variety of commercial development and research initiatives, GXP® software provides a comprehensive suite of solutions enabling timely and effective decision-making.


What you could be doing for us:


As a Customer Success Officer, you will be responsible for the provision of technical support to a wide range of clients, in different countries within the EMEA region with differing cultural backgrounds. You will need to support new clients that might have just acquired our ecosystem, through to mature clients that have a deep technical understanding of our ecosystem, with complex problems that need to be worked through.


Additionally, you will be responsible in creating, customizing, developing and delivering technical training materials in both a virtual and classroom setting. You will be an instructor, due to your knowledge of our ecosystem, industry experience within the domain, and your ability to communicate with influence.


This role requires empathy, logic skills, the ability to think differently and a genuine desire to help people do their best, and our customers succeed with their business.


Successful candidates should also be able to manage a diverse number of work items from different customers and be able to prioritize and multitask effectively throughout the working day.


This role is hybrid and can be based out of Guildford, London, Manchester or Gloucester with a flexible approach to days in the office, but you will need to be UK based.

Due to the nature of our business, a moderate demand for domestic and international travel is expected. You will act with a high degree of autonomy, combining deep technical expertise with strong analytical reasoning to make sound decisions and provide reliable guidance to our clients.  The Customer Success Officer’s primary internal interfaces are with Product Management, Sales Engineers and other Customer Success Executives, all of which are located internationally.
