Then the Customer Success team might be the place for you!

Jobber exists to help people in small businesses be successful. We work with small home service businesses, like your local plumbers, painters, and landscapers, to transform the way service is delivered through technology. With Jobber they can quote, schedule, invoice, and collect payments from their customers, while providing an easy and professional customer experience. Running a small business today isn’t like it used to be—the way we consume and deliver service is changing rapidly, technology is evolving, and customers expect more. That’s why we put the power and flexibility in their hands to run their businesses how, where, and when they want!

Our culture of transparency, inclusivity, collaboration, and innovation has been recognized by Great Place to Work, Canada’s Most Admired Corporate Cultures, and more. Jobber has also been named on the Globe and Mail’s Canada’s Top Growing Companies list, and Deloitte Canada’s Technology Fast 50™, Enterprise Fast 15, and Technology Fast 500™ lists. With an Executive team that has over thirty years of industry experience of leading the way, we’ve come a long way from our first customer in 2011—but we’ve just scratched the surface of what we want to accomplish for our customers.

We help our employees grow professionally; we have a ton of onboarding resources, tutorials, hackathons and buddies to support learnings and provide opportunities to innovate. We have a range of experience levels on teams which allow for mentor/mentee opportunities. Leaders at Jobber work with empathy and support employees to build a healthy work-life harmony. Bring your dedication and passion to this job to fulfill your goals.

The team:

If our company values were a department, they would be the Customer Success team; they are humble, supportive, and truly give a sh*t about making sure our customers are successful in Jobber. This group is one that cares about authentic interactions. While you’re empowering customers every day, your team will motivate each other to be your true and weird self. Don’t believe me? Meet your future team here.

At Jobber we never stop growing and learning, and you shouldn’t either. Through continuous 1:1s, dedicated feedback and support from your manager and our Learning and Development team, and your own sense of curiosity, we hope you develop to another level with your skill set.

Our tiered support team supports both our customers and our support representatives to ensure the quality of escalations remains exceptional. You will be working with a team of technical experts and software engineers to troubleshoot and triage issues, perform production data fixes for customer accounts, complete engineering tasks that solve simple problems or fill gaps left in internal tooling. In this role, you’ll support and develop your team, adapting it to changes, while rolling up your sleeves to work on problems with them.

  • Break down and explain complex technical issues to both technical and non-technical audiences to create clarity and set correct expectations to all stakeholders.

  • Strive for execution excellence through the optimization of our platforms/tools.
  • Analyze, communicate, re-communicate (and maybe even obsess a bit) over success metrics.
  • Remove roadblocks and build guardrails to create an environment where people can rapidly produce top-quality work that ultimately helps our customers be successful.
