THE JOB
Do you have a passion for customer service, relationship building, and swag? Do you enjoy the excitement of sales but prefer to focus on developing relationships with existing clients instead of cold calling to find new business? As an Account Manager, you will be the de facto expert on our products and services.

Kotis embodies the culture of a startup, but rejects the 50+ hour work week with no work/life balance! We offer flexible full-time working arrangements.
