Customer Support Specialist

Having recently secured 43 million in funding and named one of Canada’s Companies-to-Watch in Deloitte’s Technology Fast 50™ Awards, we are becoming one of Canada’s fastest-growing start-ups and looking to expand our team!

*** This position is fully remote ***

We are looking for a new team member who wants to make an impact. We pride ourselves on delivering an industry leading platform. If you are interested in working with the latest tech in a fast-paced start-up environment, then we want to hear from you!

You love helping people, and know that every call, email and live chat with a customer is an opportunity to help someone through a struggle, providing them with empathy, clarity and knowledgeable support. You meet frustration with compassion and confidence, knowing that you’re going to be the one to set things right.

And your team? – They’re with you, and you’re with them! There will be great calls, and there will be some not-so-great ones… and you’re with them to offer and receive a “congratulations” on a job well done or some kind words of encouragement.

  • Answer calls and direct callers to the right person within Certn


  • 1+ years’ experience as a CSR, or experience in customer service + technical abilities
  • Fluency in French and English is an asset
  • Experience maintaining a CRM system and creating IT tickets
  • A naturally positive attitude with the ability to work calmly when customers are stressed or upset
  • Ability to work independently, and a supportive and positive team member
