About

Since 2013, we’ve been building a CRM that focuses on better communication, without the hassle of manual data entry or complex UI.

Our goal: double the productivity of every sales rep.

We’re a bootstrapped, profitable, 100% remote team of thoughtful humans who value autonomy and impact. We’re eager to make a product our customers fall in love with over and over again.

 

Today, we're 60+ team members from around the world—supporting and coaching thousands of customers to growth every single day.

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
