Briza is hiring a

Senior Customer Success Manager

Toronto, Canada

Hi, we are Briza! A globally distributed, remote-first tech startup building the world’s leading API (Application Programming Interface) for commercial insurance.

Before Briza, it took small and medium size businesses weeks and a lot of paperwork to get their company insured. Often, that lack of insurance is what blocks companies from moving forward. Our product reduces that time to minutes and some API requests (or a click of a button).

In order for us to ensure our customers are able to successfully build great customer experiences on our API we need a Senior Customer Success professional to join our team with experience helping customers better implement and utilize software.  

If you have ever thought about working in something other than your traditional enterprise software company and want to take your experience and knowledge as a part of growth and customer-centric start up, come join us at Briza.

Your Opportunity

We are a growing company of builders, innovators and compassionate/supportive, collaborative people that believe small teams have a huge impact. 

  • To quote one of our Brizans you will get the opportunity to “get the best out of yourself” at Briza. 
  • Our team is diverse, and globally distributed meaning that you could be a part of Briza from virtually anywhere.
