Meet the Trifacta Data Wrangling Success Team

September 4, 2015

Trifacta has always been focused on the user experience; connecting people to data is a core part of our company’s DNA. Every team in Trifacta, from engineering to marketing, cares deeply about the human aspect of data wrangling. But the team that pays the most attention to making data wrangling easy (and fun!) is the Customer Success Management department. This team focuses 100% on helping customers turn their data into valuable insights.

Our Jobs:

Customer Success Managers: If you think of the Customer Success Management department as a football team, Customer Success Managers are the quarterbacks. These individuals coordinate Trifacta’s post-sales engagement and connect customers to the resources they need to make their Trifacta projects successful. Above all, Customer Success Managers make sure that customers are able to move their data wrangling projects into production on Trifacta to  derive significant business benefits.

Solutions Architects: Solutions Architects have deep knowledge of the Hadoop ecosystem and familiarity with the best practices of data science. They run customer installations, provide guidance on integrating Trifacta with Hadoop components, and facilitate expert sessions.

Technical Support: Trifacta Technical Support are the first responders for immediate customer problems. Whether you are faced with a challenging data wrangling problem or just looking for usage advice, our support team will help you find the solution.
