Belgrade, Serbia
Posted on Thursday, February 29, 2024

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 raised $25 million in our Series B round in December 2020 and $30 million in our Series C round in 2022. We more than doubled in size in every meaningful way: annual recurring revenue, the size of our customer base, and the size of our Gorgias team, for starters.

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

The position is available across our European hubs, including Paris (France), Lisbon (Portugal), and Belgrade (Serbia). Our work arrangement is hybrid, with a requirement of two days per week in the office.

About the Apps Team

The Apps Team is responsible for creating and maintaining Native Apps between external services and Gorgias, as well as enabling others to create apps in Gorgias. Apps are the connecting piece between Gorgias and the rest of the ecosystem: through them, support tickets are created and answered, customer data is ingested, actions on external services are executed. There are two main types of apps:

  • Messaging apps: apps which allow users to send and receive messages from third-party channels. Those include for example Gmail, Facebook Messenger, or Aircall.

  • Ecommerce apps: apps which allow users to have more data about customers contacting them and to execute actions for those customers. Those include for example Shopify, Recharge, or Magento 2.
