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 43 high-performing, happy people that are dedicated to building a product our customers love.

You have excellent written and verbal communication skills and are comfortable working independently in a fast-paced environment. You have demonstrated the ability to manage and grow relationships with your customers and share best practices with a team of success managers.
You are someone with high emotional intelligence, having the ability to understand and empathize with the needs of others. You have a friendly, but strong demeanor
. You must be located in North America and available to work normal U.S. business hours. You should have experience working in a startup environment; remote work experience would be a plus.
