You will partner closely with other Provenance team members, including the Customer Account Manager, Product Lead, Technical Implementation & Support.

  • Promote and manage transitions to current product releases. Assist customers in planning and executing upgrades and ensuring they are current.
  • Build customer advocates who will speak on behalf of Provenance as a reference and share success stories of using Provenance software.
