About Kustomer

Kustomer is the industry leading conversational CRM platform perfecting every customer experience. Built with intelligent tools such as AI and Automation, no code-configuration and a connected data platform that unifies data from multiple sources through a single timeline, Kustomer empowers businesses to operate with greater efficiency and deliver more personalized service to customers across any channel, making every interaction more meaningful and memorable. Today, Kustomer is the core platform for some of the leading customer service brands like Ring, Glovo, Away Travel, Priceline and Sweetgreen.

Kustomer was founded in 2015 by serial entrepreneurs Brad Birnbaum and Jeremy Suriel and has raised over $200M in funding backed by leading VCs. Meta announced its intention to acquire Kustomer in 2020 and completed the transaction in 2022. Kustomer joined Meta’s Business Messaging Group to transform the way people and businesses communicate through modern messaging channels. In 2023, Kustomer spun out from Meta as a standalone company backed by original partners, Battery, Redpoint and Boldstart Ventures, who have invested $60M in capital, ensuring Kustomer’s growth and success for many years to come. 

Our Krew is made up of passionate and collaborative people who really care about what they do and the people they help. We look for people who are passionate about enhancing the customer service experience for everyone involved, as it's the core of what we do. We're growing our business with no plans of slowing down.

An Insider's view of Kustomer

What are some social events your company does?

We've started a tradition we refer to as Kamp Kustomer - a yearly in-person retreat where we come together in fun locations like the Poconos to reconnect, build trust within our teams, and collaborate. It's a great chance to unwind from the daily routine and we always return with renewed energy and focus.

Catherine

Senior Technical Writer

What projects are you most excited about?

I am eager to work on the most complex use cases of our clients. These opportunities are where I can best demonstrate my skills and the power of the Kustomer platform. As a customer service-focused platform, Kustomer offers endless possibilities, and it’s rewarding to see the memorable customer service experiences our clients are able to create.

Megied

Solutions Engineering

What are some things you learned at the company?

Something that I’ve learned during my time at Kustomer is the power of embracing your team’s knowledge. As professionals in the workforce, we’re often pushed into thinking that we need to know everything and work in a silo. Everyone at Kustomer embraces collaboration and supporting each other through their projects. It’s very special in that way.

Lauren

Customer Success Manager

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

Kustomer's new path forward brings generative AI advancements to the platform. Generative AI's new approach to building personalized context in our features leverages inputs and outputs within our data. A core tenet of ours is building these features in a responsible and ethical way by respecting privacy and security principles above all else.

Patrick

Software Engineering Manager

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

The People/Talent teams are working hard to add 50+ people to Kustomer in 2023! The challenge of finding great teammates who can help us be a better company than ever before is no small feat. We work hard to ensure that everyone we hire brings something unique to our Krew and is excited to work with others in order to make our vision come to life.
