About us

We are on a mission to change the way decision-makers get the support they need to build successful companies.

CModel is a self-service Decision Intelligence Company that provides insights and recommendations to leaders who want to grow their business. CModel’s CORA is an AI-powered Decision Intelligence platform helping business leaders make better decisions, faster.  Business leaders can use CORA to get personalized recommendations in real-time based on your historical data, generative AI, and input from human experts to help business leaders answer the key questions, what actions do I take to achieve my business outcomes and why.

CModel is focused on helping CEOs find the truth in their data so they can grow with confidence at speed. CORA aggregates your most critical business data and uses machine learning to analyze metrics, assumptions, and industry benchmarks to deliver curated recommendations with subject matter expertise. 

We are hiring our first Customer Success Manager, who will be on the ground building our CS team. This individual will have the opportunity to shape what CS looks like for CModel and its clients, as you build a function from the ground up. Our current customers are early adopters of the product and we are looking for someone to help us design the process to support those early adopters and turn them into long-standing customers, who acknowledge the value CModel plays for them in the growth of their organization. The CS position is pivotal to our success, so we are looking for dedicated, excited, and outstanding candidates to join our small, but dynamic team. 

We have recently closed a pre-seed investment round led by a Birmingham Alabama VC. and as such, are excited to grow our head office in Birmingham. The CModel office will be in the Innovation Depot, a vibrant and exciting location for start-ups. 


We are looking for a candidate already located in Birmingham Alabama or prepared to relocate to Birmingham (relocation budget available).
