Job description

At Close, we're building the sales communication platform of the future. With our roots as the very first sales CRM to include built-in calling, we're leading the industry toward eliminating manual processes and helping companies to close more deals - faster. 

Since our founding in 2013, we've grown to become a profitable, 100% globally distributed team of 40 high-performing, happy people that are dedicated to building a product our customers love.

  • Deep knowledge of SaaS + CRM landscape (Experienced user of other sales platforms, or programs frequently integrated with Close)

Key Responsibilities

Why work with us?

  • 100% remote-first team for over 6 years (we believe in trust and autonomy)
  • 2 x annual team retreats ✈️When we start traveling again ;)  (Lisbon retreat video)
  • Competitive salary
  • 7 weeks PTO (includes company-wide winter holiday break)
  • 1 month paid sabbatical after 5 years
  • Parental leave (10 wks primary caregiver / 4 wks secondary caregiver)
  • 99% premiums paid for excellent medical and dental coverage, including an HSA option (US residents)
  • 401k matching at 4% (US residents)
  • Dependent care FSA (US residents) 

At Close, everyone has a voice. We encourage transparency and practicing a mature approach to the work-place. In general, we don’t have strict policies, we have guidelines. Work/Life harmony is an important part of our organization - we believe you bring your best to work when you practice self care (whatever that looks like for you). 

We come from 12 countries and 16 states; a collection of talented humans rich in diverse backgrounds, lifestyles and cultures. Twice a year we meet up somewhere around the world to spend time with one another. We see these retreats as an opportunity to strengthen the social fiber of our community. This team is growing in more ways than one - we’ve recently launched 11 babies (and counting!).

Unanimously, our favorite and most impactful value is “Build a house you want to live in.” We strive to make decisions that are authentic for our organization. At Close, we have a high care factor for one another, in making an awesome product and championing the success of our customers.
