LOVE WHAT YOU DO
We are Sonnet, Canada’s smart new insurance done completely online. We set out to change how Canadians feel about insurance, and that means changing how we think about customer service.
We hire people who love people. People who are crazy about customers and believe that customer service can and should be easy and fun for all (employees and customers alike).
We are a technology company, so self-professed digital geeks are more than welcome. We also look for people who don’t take themselves too seriously, can work in ambiguity, support each other and communicate authentically to join our team.
When our customers reach out to us with questions or need help to solve a problem, we want them to feel like they are being helped by someone who really cares.
The feedback we hear so far is that talking to one of our Customer Service Heroes is like talking to friends or family and we NEVER want that to change.
If all that doesn’t sound like you then stop reading now! If it does sound like you, read on!
