Opportunities like this don’t come along too often. Vivacity Labs is a start-up that’s consistently delivering 100%+ year-on-year growth, in one of the fastest growing sectors, with a talented team and the very brightest of futures.

Our work makes a real difference to real people. By harnessing the power of cutting edge AI techniques, we’re on a mission to empower cities to create sustainable, citizen-centric transport networks.

We are the lead innovators in our field and have a strong, open and friendly culture that supports those looking for opportunity, challenge and autonomy.

About the role

We are currently rolling out thousands of sensors across the UK, Europe and beyond, and seeking a passionate Technical Customer Success Manager to join our Client Delivery team. This role will have the opportunity to develop client relationships on projects that help deliver a societal benefit, while internally working alongside a world leading AI research team.
