Customer Sales and Service Advocate – Bilingual & English Positions (permanent)

About Pets Plus Us

We are a values-led, people-powered company with a fresh approach to insurance and corporate culture.  We looked at the banal world of pet insurance and decided it needed a big shake-up.  So we set out to do things differently and created a distinct offering with a pet owner community at its core.  Our number one job is to serve the members of our community and keep them happy.  It’s that simple.  We thrive on a fun, fast and flexible working environment.  Everyone on our team wears many hats and rolls up their sleeves to crack entrepreneurial challenges every day.  We recognize and reward our people on the basis of living our values and achieving audacious goals. Did we mention our offices are pet friendly?
