Meet Gorgias, the customer service platform designed for ecommerce merchants, and built to provide amazing experience to shoppers at scale on Shopify, BigCommerce, and Magento. Our product empowers merchants to manage all their customer service in one place over email, live chat, voice, Facebook, Instagram, and SMS.

Everything we do is for our customers, and we’re currently serving over 12,000+ ecommerce merchants, including : Steve Madden, Timbuk2, Decathlon, and Sports Illustrated. They love us for our innovative product, our focus on their ecommerce needs, and, of course, our lightning-fast customer service response time.

We’re still growing fast and looking for new teammates who want to grow with us.
