Director of Customer Success

Our client is a Series C CX platform that creates value for brands and customers in an easy to use, friendly and engaging way.

This org was founded on the principle that there must be a better way to do customer service and empower agents to have meaningful conversations rather than just solve tickets for the business. 

Since their inception in 2015 they have expanded globally and now has 150+ employees in offices across Copenhagen, London, Chicago, and Melbourne. The company has raised more than $155 million in funding to date with backing from Notion Capital, Project A Ventures, SEED Capital and General Atlantic.

Customer service software is the 3rd largest software vertical and change is long overdue in CS technology, so there’s a big market opportunity. Linked to that, the pandemic and current macro-economic market has increased the need for a platform like ours that can connect customer service agents more effectively, so there couldn’t be a better time to join.
