Customer Service, Sales & Business Development
Raleigh, NC, USA
Posted on Wednesday, December 6, 2023

Relay, a Raleigh-based tech startup, is looking to change the way we communicate. We’re on a mission that matters.

Relay is quickly growing as a product solution for enterprise customers. We have ambitious goals to rapidly develop our product, expand our customer base, and be a market leader as a software based communication solution for the active workforce.

We are currently seeking a Manager, Customer Success Specialist Team that will thrive in a scrappy start-up environment where new standards are still being set. Do you want to help mold and improve the customer experience from trial to ongoing support? Join us and you can help create the playbook while delivering results directly with customers.

Frontline workers are the lifeblood of our economy and we're building the cloud platform that makes them better, faster and safer than ever before. Our cloud solution offers a data driven approach to frontline work through real time communications, real time location information and powerful real time data and insights.

Here at Relay, we've designed, built, and launched an entirely new product category – a simple, rugged, internet-enabled smart-device and all the software that runs it – and we’re disrupting the handheld radio industry for B2B clients and frontline workers across multiple industries and verticals. We've achieved proven product-market fit with a user experience that solves real-world customer pain and unlocks new capabilities and are expanding our operations team to support this growth.

We are currently seeking a Manager for our Customer Success Specialist Team who will thrive in a dynamic start-up environment.

This role will be based in our North Hills, Raleigh, North Carolina HQ and we work in a hybrid model with 3 days in the office, 2 days remote, and will involve approximately 20% travel.
