What is your position and what team are you a part of at ON24?

Senior Customer Success Manager on Aimee Dress’ Global Pod team

How did you hear about ON24, and what drew you to join?

I applied through AngelList and knew nothing about ON24, other than that it was a webcasting platform. In my previous role, I was responsible for the entire Customer Success and Onboarding webinar program, so it seemed like an opportunity that aligned well with my skill set.I knew it was going to be a match after the interview process. It was essential to me to land in a role where I could be mentored and grow in my career.  After interviewing with several leaders in Customer Success, I was convinced these were precisely the type of people I wanted to work with/for.

How long have you been with ON24?

Since 2016

How has ON24 evolved since the time you joined?

When I started, ON24 was one of many companies that delivered webinars. Now, ON24 is THE industry-leading webcasting platform.

What have been some of your favorite projects you have worked on at ON24?

I really like working with the Newbies!

How has ON24 helped you with your career development?

The mentorship I have received from my leaders at ON24 has been truly outstanding. One of the most valuable lessons I have learned is that my career can progress and develop without following a cookie-cutter path.

What has been your favorite ON24 memory?

It’s a three-way tie!

    • February 3, 2021 ‚Äď 9:31 AM ET.¬†Sharat’s reaction after the bell rang¬†while everyone was cheering and clapping on their webcams. I don’t know what he was thinking, but whatever it was, I was moved by his reaction. I’m glad he paused to take in that moment because it was a significant one.
    • Webinar World in 2017. Particularly the keynote on the first day. Standing room only, the audience was pumped, taking notes, asking questions, and I just knew at that moment that what we were doing as a company was something really special.
    • Getting to see all my colleagues’ smiling faces at our annual SKO/Offsite! I hope we can bring that event back in the future.

What excites you most about ON24’s future?

I am excited & curious about what’s next in terms of platform development, especially as the world settles into this new hybrid business environment post-covid.

What advice do you have for prospective ON24 candidates?

Success at ON24 is directly correlated with work ethic, attitude, AND adaptability!

What is unique about ON24?

Despite being a big company now, I feel like we’re still a pretty tight-knit team.

What has your experience been like adjusting to a fully remote environment?

I’ve always worked remotely, but having other people in my household working remotely¬†with¬†me has been an interesting (challenging¬†ūüėČ) adjustment.

If you could switch your role with anyone else in the company, who would it be and why?

I am definitely not qualified, but the product development team! I have no idea what alchemy happens between the conceptual stage to release, but it’s impressive.

What has been your favorite customer success story?

I can’t nail down just one, but it’s always so satisfying to get a client that’s in terrible shape and help them turn things around.

Why should those in the customer success field be interested in joining ON24?

The CSM role at ON24 isn’t a support, sales, or other position hidden behind a CSM title. Our CS org is actually practicing the model and has buy-in/support from executive leadership, which is huge.
