Since 2012, Close has grown to become a profitable, 100% globally distributed team of high-performing, happy people building a product their customers love. 

At Close, everyone has a voice. They encourage transparency and practicing a mature approach to the work-place. Work/Life harmony is an important part of Close. They believe you bring your best to work when you practice self-care (whatever that looks like for you). 

💚 The team is a collection of talented humans rich in diverse backgrounds, lifestyles, and cultures.

What I enjoy most about working at Close is the thoughtful discussions and the thought-provoking debates! We have a value of continuous truth-seeking, it’s a very big.

Applying process

At Close, all recruiting efforts are shared internally by the team while also continuing a full workload to build, maintain and service a quality product for their customers. They do their very best to respond quickly to your application. The interview process can take anywhere from 2-4 weeks.

The great thing is: the people hosting interviews are your potential future colleagues! Candidates are expected to put time and effort into the application. They see your application as your first interview

Close's Interview Flow:

All interviews are hosted via Zoom video. A typical interview process would look something like this; however, varies slightly with each role: 

🤝 Introduction & background call (~45 min) 

🤝 Take-home project (~3 hrs) 

🤝 Call 2 (~45 min) + Company / Culture call (~20 min) 

🤝 Call 3 (~45 min) 

🤝 Founder call (~30 min)

🤝 Reference calls
