Customer Success Associate

Nestled away in the Claddagh, there is a team of 14 hard at work. We are a growing software team in the heart of old beautiful Galway; the old and the new combined.

We cherish the vibrancy, beauty and the friendly feel of our legendary surroundings (and lunch at the Spanish Arch isn’t bad either!).

We also cherish our customers.

Working in Ex Ordo

Every team member eats, sleeps and breathes the customer experience. We have to. We’re 4 years old. We serve customers in over 50 countries, organising diverse conferences on every topic you can imagine. In less than 3 years, we’ll have customers in 100 countries across multiple time zones with different languages. How do we help a confused researcher in California when we are all asleep? There’s a huge journey ahead of us and we need someone to help us get there.

Delivering excellence is not a burden but a privilege. We are learning and are certain we can do and be better; for ourselves, each other and most importantly, our customers. We pride ourselves on our team and are dedicated to fostering a fun, dynamic place to work. We need someone who can enhance the fun times and the bad - to slog it out over new feature discussions and enjoy an ice-cream after.
