Job description

Here at PeopleKeep, we help make health care affordable for thousands of small business employees and their families. Each day, our team hears how much our customers love our product and the support they get from our team. Now is an exciting time for our business, as we’re looking to expand our product to enable businesses to do even more for their employees, making it easier to attract, hire, and retain great talent. Come join our product-led start-up and have a voice at the table.


What you’ll do for us

As the Customer Experience Manager, you’ll oversee two small, customer-facing teams: our customer support team and our documentation review team.
