Customer Success Manager

Trusted by businesses in 75 countries across the globe and in 100 different languages, Canvas is a cloud-based software service revolutionizing how work gets done. We help our subscribers save (literally) a ton of paper every 3 days. As a key member of our Customer Success team, your mission is to support potential and existing subscribers via chat, phone and/or email, from resolving technical issues to changing passwords to answering questions about our product’s features. This is an incredibly meaningful role at Canvas as you not only help accelerate our customers’ time to value in deploying Canvas apps on our platform but you also serve as a brand ambassador and impact our subscribers’ overall satisfaction.

Being a Customer Success Manager is ideal for someone with extraordinary drive and customer focus to help Canvas deliver our compelling service. It also serves as the gateway to your career here at Canvas. Our team members have progressed from this role into Customer Success Managers and account managers. While we believe it would be helpful to have a college degree, a web savvy individual who is curious to learn more, works well under pressure and loves his/her smartphone and/or tablet is also a great candidate. We’re looking for A players who are passionate about the triple bottom line to join us on this game changing ride.

So, What’s Canvas?
Canvas is a cloud-based, mobile platform revolutionizing how work gets done. We help businesses join the mobile-first world, where digitalization is everything, by enabling expensive and inefficient paper forms and processes to be replaced with powerful apps for smartphones and tablets.
