The opportunity

Do you love building relationships and helping outstanding performers deliver their best work? Are you a creative problem-solver who swims comfortably in the world of technology? Do you enjoy flexibility and a dynamic day-to-day? You might love this role!

Unity's Partner Relations team is looking for a supportive, empathetic leader to inspire, empower and develop the PRM team towards excellence. This person will enable our proactive, people-minded influencers to own the success of our most valued Industry partners, from online product configurators to photorealistic surgical simulators to immersive multi-user VR experiences.

As a Lead Partner Relations Manager, you will work closely with the other lead(s) in your region to manage the team. You’ll maintain a small number of strategic partner accounts alongside your own set of direct reports while also functioning as part of a global united leadership team. You’ll help your PRM team amplify the voice of Unity users, solve hard problems, and influence product decisions to reflect what creators really care about. As a valued member of a globally-distributed leadership team with a diverse group of backgrounds and skills, you'll learn from and support each other to overcome obstacles. Together you will collaborate to create new systems and processes that improve PRM efficiency. You’ll share valuable insight, helping to uncover opportunities to deliver better customer value and improve the workday experience of the global PRM team. You will also create opportunities for team learning and growth while supporting team members to take ownership of their development, recognise and motivate the team towards our target values and behaviours. All of this ensures we can deliver on our mission to define and drive partner success!

What you’ll be doing

  • Own the support relationship for a strategic selection of Unity’s highest-profile Industry partners.
  • Enable, support and grow the team through coaching and 1:1s, supporting the onboarding of new team members, leading team training, delivering performance feedback, and helping to create growth maps.
  • Proactively drive Customer Success through the team by monitoring customer health and supporting the team in creating/actioning plans to address areas of low scores.
  • Collaborating with adjacent teams to flag opportunities to provide additional customer value, and celebrating wins and the people behind them.
  • Support and inform Team Manager: ensure critical team and customer information is surfaced, share opportunities for improvements in people, products and processes, report on progress, wins, and risks.

What we’re looking for

  • Helping your team succeed is your North Star; you have strong mentoring skills and are driven by developing and enabling others.
  • Outstanding written and verbal communication skills, catering to executive and technical folks.
  • Previous employment in an industrial sector such as automotive, architecture, construction, defence, manufacturing, pharmaceutical or other similar sectors
  • Highly proactive, accountable, and influential, you have an affinity for nurturing and growing strategic relationships.
  • Available to travel both domestically and internationally, as needed

You might also have

  • Past experience in a people manager role for a team of Technical Project Managers, Producers, Technical Account Managers, or other teams in the tech industry
  • Professional or enthusiast knowledge of Unity, or technical experience in software development
  • A Customer Success background
