Since 2013, Close grew to become a profitable, 100% globally distributed team of high-performing, happy people building a product customers love.
At Close, everyone has a voice. Transparency is encouraged, they practice a mature approach to the work-place. They don’t have strict policies, they have guidelines. Work/Life harmony is an important part of Close - they believe you bring your best to work when you practice self-care (whatever that looks like for you).
💚The team is a collection of talented humans rich in diverse backgrounds, lifestyles, and cultures.
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 bigRebecca Luo
“Build a house you want to live in” is Close’s favourite and most impactful value. 🏠💚
