Mobile Application Support Consultant

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 Mobile Application Support 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 platform’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.

In order to interact with our global subscribers, you’ll work between 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. This means you’ll come in earlier some days and stay later on others. Perfect for getting errands done while everyone else is at work! You’ll receive training to become familiar with our culture, mobile app platform and powerful product features. You’ll gain tremendous experience seeing how a rapidly growing technology company is built from a team of proven entrepreneurs.

Being a Mobile Application Support Consultant is ideal for someone with extraordinary drive and customer focus to help Canvas deliver our compelling service. This role also serves as the gateway to your career here at Canvas. Former Support Consultants have become project managers, sales consultants 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 also makes for 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Canvas is a mobile platform that makes it simple for business to automate how work is done, replacing outdated process and expensive paperwork. The Canvas App works on smartphones and tablets, helping companies easily collect information across their organization, share it instantly with others and gain real-time insight on their business operations. Canvas can be easily customized by all types of businesses to empower their workforce, unleashing the value in data across the organization to help better connect with colleagues and engage more effectively with customers. Automating millions of workplace activities for well-known brands like Target, Pepsi, Honda and Red Bull means there's a good chance you have been around someone using Canvas in the past 24 hours, making us one of the fastest growing mobile platforms in the world.

Named as one of “the 10 best business apps you need right now” by CNN, Canvas has been featured as a leader in the mobile app space in The Washington Post, TechCrunch, DCInno, and Entrepreneur Magazine, among others. Network World recently highlighted our corporate volunteer program, called Ante Up, which encourages employees to adopt a not-for-profit they’re passionate about, donate the Canvas technology and spend two weeks of paid time off in the field learning how they do business. We’re proud to have been honored as a Washington Business Journal Best Places To Work 2016 and to have won the Northern Virginia Technology Council’s 2016 Hot Ticket Award for Hottest Company Culture. We’re on a mission to continue fostering an amazing culture for people who like to make an impact and enjoy collaborating.
