Overview

Launched in 2013, Akkroo is a fast-growing, London headquartered B2B SaaS company, at the forefront of a new, emerging category that helps businesses bridge the gap between exhibiting at live events, and their sales, Marketing Automation and CRM solutions.

We’re spent the last 4 years developing the platform, building an incredible international customer base and laying the foundations for further global growth. After reaching $1M in Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) and raising a preSeries A round in 2016, we are growing and on the journey to $10M ARR and beyond.

 

About the role

  • Our ideal team mate will be familiar with working with customers in adopting and troubleshooting B2B software, have an empathetic attitude to customer success and is someone who believes in our vision for better events.

  • You’re passionate about support. You’re able to empathize with customers in a genuine way that lets them know you care about their issues.
  • You’re an excellent communicator, fluent in written English with a style focused on building human relationships with customers. You’re just as comfortable on the phone as you are in an email or Live Chat.
  • You’re curious and have a natural ability to “zoom out” of a problem, in order to ask the right questions. An empathetic problem solver who goes out of their way to help people succeed.
  • You’re proactive when it comes to challenges. When you don’t know something, you embrace the chance to grow and get better.
