Head of Product
San Francisco, Remote /
For millions of teams working in dozens of industries, day-to-day business gets done on the phone. So why—despite the huge leaps we've taken in design and usability—does most business phone software still look, feel, and act like it was born in the 90s?
OpenPhone is changing that. We're the modern, sophisticated answer to the clunky, outdated phone systems that have been slowing down businesses for years. And after earning 20,000 happy customers and 56M in funding in just four years, it's safe to say we're onto something big.
Our team is curious, ambitious, and dedicated to their crafts. We're high trust with a strong bias for action. If you're looking for a place to do your life's work, get in touch. We'd love to hear from you.
