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.

Our backend tech stack currently includes Python (Flask, Gunicorn, Celery, Fabric), Elasticsearch, MongoDB, MySQL, Redis, New Relic, and Puppet on AWS. Our backend primarily serves a well-documented public API that our front-end JavaScript app consumes.

We ❤ open source – using dozens of open source projects with contributions to many of them, and released some of our own: https://github.com/closeio

ABOUT YOU
We're looking for great developers to join our core team who have a strong understanding of web technologies and want to help design, implement, launch, and scale major systems and user-facing features.

You should...

    • have demonstrated experience in several of the technologies we are using, but you don’t need to be an expert in all of them. We’re looking for someone who is already comfortable across the web stack and eager to learn additional technologies as necessary.
    • enjoy designing, scaling, and optimizing systems to make them super fast, while still being nicely maintainable.
    • be comfortable in a fast-paced environment with a small and talented team.

Bonus points if you...

    • have contributed open source code related to our tech stack

Why work with us?

    • For the personal growth experience of helping build a truly successful SaaS company with a stellar team where you can have a huge impact.
    • Above market salary, healthcare, dental, and retirement benefits package
    • Work remotely from anywhere in the world, or from our HQ in Palo Alto, CA with a beautiful view. Just be willing to do a bit of traveling every quarter for some face-to-face time with the whole team.
