ABOUT US
At Close.io we’re building the sales communication platform of the future. We’ve built a next-generation CRM that eliminates manual data entry and helps sales teams close more deals. We are hiring engineers to help us unify the world's sales calls and emails into one beautiful workflow. We are a ~25 person remote team that is profitable and building a product our customers love.

Our app’s frontend is a single-page HTML5/JavaScript web app originally written in Backbone.js/Handlebars but now using React for new features. We bundle with Webpack and test with Enzyme and QUnit.

Our frontend app is built entirely on top of our public REST API and targets only modern browsers. Our UI updates in near real-time and is written in LESS/CSS atop Bootstrap and takes advantage of fun technologies like Websockets and WebRTC. We care about performance (e.g. route-based code splitting), maintainability, and testability of our frontend code.

We ❤ open source – using 40+ frontend libraries/plugins with contributions to many of them.
