KOHO is a quickly scaling FinTech company backed by leading investors and advisors from around the world. We started KOHO because we believe in doing two things:
Democratizing access to the best financial products and giving everyone a great financial foundation.
Since our journey began 5 years ago, we’ve raised more the $60M, grown the KOHO Collective to over 100 employees and created accounts for more than 250,000 Canadians.
About the Role:
We're building KOHO for the benefit of all Canadians, and we're looking for a motivated and organized Bilingual User Success Agent to join our growing, and pretty awesome, team! This role is all about walking the tightrope between time management, prioritization, empathy, and havin' a good time.
Do you live for feedback? Are you curious about how to make the financial system easier to understand? Are you tired of listening to robots on the other end of a service call? We feel you.
This is a 3-month contract role with the possibility of extension! There is a minimum requirement to work one mid (12-8pm) shift each week. We are looking for User Success Agents for the following shifts:
- Friday - Tuesday (Off on Wednesday and Thursday)
- Sunday - Thursday (Off on Friday and Saturday)
You will be one of the main points of contact for KOHO users, responding to issues and feedback
You will monitor and answer users’ inquiries via in-app chat, email, and telephone

You will contribute to regular brainstorm sessions on how KOHO can make our users’ experience even better
You will report any bugs or crashes to our tech team and communicate to the user on our progress
You will encourage users to provide any feature requests on our public Trello board
Lastly, you’ll champion KOHO’s vision to help people live the life they want by empowering them financially
