  • Post-deployment, ensure that appropriate processes are in place to rigorously track and measure design success

To be successful in this role, you should have…:

Who is RouteThis?

RouteThis is a funded startup in downtown Kitchener that’s changing the way companies handle support around the world. Instead of dealing with frustrating, hour-long support calls or email chains that last for weeks, RouteThis has built a platform that gives technical support teams the answers they need to immediately fix customers’ issues or help customers to solve the problems themselves.

If you want to be working on the next generation of support diagnostics that takes the support paradigm and flips it on its head, you should be working at RouteThis.

Why should you work for us?

  • Growth: As a rapidly growing startup, we’re constantly facing new challenges and prefer to promote from within. We reward hard work, so if you’re interested in a future in sales, this role is a great next step.
  • Team: At RouteThis you’ll be working on a highly-motivated team full of the best Sales, Marketing, and Engineering talent you can find. We are carefully selective on who we hire as we’re a close team!
  • Fun: Monthly team social events, Matt making your morning espresso or pour over in the office, or just grabbing a drink at a nearby coffee shop with a coworker, we never forget that work should also be fun!
  • Perks & Benefits: We cater lunch every Friday and offer snacks in the office on top of competitive salaries and a generous benefits package.
  • Location: Located in downtown Kitchener, near a bus stop and the future home of the LRT and transit hub, RouteThis has a prime location if you want to live downtown (or we’ll rent you a parking spot if you need one!).
