Within the Operations department, and reporting to the Team Lead Customer Care, the mission of the Customer Care team is to provide an excellent experience to all our customers in the daily use of our products and services.

As a Senior Customer Care Manager, you will play a crucial role in managing a primarily German-speaking portfolio of clients as we expand our reach in the German market. You have the flexibility to choose either our office in Paris or work remotely from Germany. While we are actively seeking office options in Germany, please note that we currently do not have established offices there.

Your responsibilities will involve building and maintaining long-term sustainable relationships with your portfolio of clients, understanding their unique needs, and driving customer satisfaction. This position will primarily focus on serving German-speaking clients, leveraging your language skills and cultural understanding to provide exceptional support and expertise.

To offer a managing presence and ensure that you have continuous support, I, as the Team Lead of Customer Care, will travel regularly to visit you if you are working remotely in Germany.

Responsibilities for the Senior Customer Care Manager role :


  • Develop and maintain long-term sustainable relationships with your portfolio of primarily German-speaking clients.
  • Serve as your portfolio’s main point of contact, ensuring their needs are met with proactive support and expertise.


  • Become the go-to technical expert on our products and their implementation/integration into clients' environments.
  • Understand client payment requirements and recommend tailored solutions that effectively meet their needs.
  • Provide guidance and insights on industry trends and best practices related to payment solutions.


  • Empower the growth of your German-speaking merchants across multiple channels by providing proactive advisory services on our products, services, and the international payments landscape.
  • Collaborate closely with other teams to identify new features and solutions based on merchant needs, contributing to the development of strong relationships with your clients.


  • Manage initiatives and projects in a fast-paced, highly entrepreneurial environment with minimal supervision.
  • Collaborate with internal teams to drive successful outcomes and ensure seamless project execution.

Preferred experience

We are seeking an experienced, customer-focused individual with a deep understanding of payment processes, fluent proficiency in German and English, and a proven track record in building strong client relationships. You possess excellent communication skills, and technical expertise, and thrive in a dynamic and fast-paced environment.

Desired skills :

  • You have a strong payment background with extensive knowledge of payment processes, systems, and industry trends.
  • Building and nurturing client relationships comes naturally to you, and you have a demonstrated ability to drive client growth and increase CLV through up-selling and cross-selling.
  • Your technical acumen allows you to become an expert on our products and effectively guide clients on their implementation and integration.
  • You possess excellent communication skills and can convey complex information clearly and concisely, both verbally and in writing.
  • Fluent proficiency in German and English is required.

Experience :

  • You have a minimum of 5 years of relevant work experience in customer relations, preferably within the FinTech/SaaS industries, with a focus on payments and API integrations.
