Customer Experience Agent



Customer Service, Sales & Business Development
Posted on Tuesday, July 18, 2023

Maev is a wellness brand reimagining daily nutrition for dogs. Our first product reinvents dog food -- what it looks like, how it’s made, and who it’s designed for. We’re a team of entrepreneurs, consumer culture fanatics, and food enthusiasts who are obsessed with design and radical innovation in this old industry. We’re a small team, passionate about building a meaningful brand, changing the way we nourish our beloved pets, and supporting others on our close-knit team of good people. But, there's a lot more work to be done, and we're excited to be growing a team of motivated humans that are up for the challenge.

With over 90 million dogs in the US, strong industry CAGR, an increased focus on nutrition, and traditional kibble losing market share due to lack of brand loyalty and poor quality, Maev is incredibly well-positioned to combine these strong industry tailwinds with a brand anchored in quality, transparency and emotional connection.

You will be responsible for providing timely and effective support, addressing inquiries, resolving issues, and creating a positive experience at every interaction. Your dedication to delivering exceptional service and your passion for building meaningful customer relationships will be key in ensuring our customers' satisfaction and loyalty.
