Close is a bootstrapped, profitable, 100% remote, ~70 person team of thoughtful individuals who value autonomy and impact. We’re eager to make a product our customers fall in love with over and over again.
We ❤️ startups & SMBs. Since 2013, we’ve been building a CRM that focuses on better communication, without the hassle of manual data entry or complex UI. Our goal: double the productivity of every sales rep.
As our first-ever Head of Growth, you will be responsible for managing and scaling Close’s customer acquisition funnel. You will need to look at Close’s most successful customers and figure out how to acquire more of them. We expect you to test and iterate on generating leads and converting new customers from a wide variety of sources (organic, paid, outbound & inbound, partnership, affiliates, etc) and communicate those results to the leadership team.
Simply put: your job is to uncover, examine, and present all of the opportunities where Close can win new customers in a sustainable way. Think of yourself as Close’s own Ferdinand Magellan – tasked with voyaging out into uncharted territory in search of new opportunities that will accelerate our growth.
While you will receive support and resources, you should expect to do ~90% of this work as an individual contributor for the first 12 months. You will report to the Director of Sales & Marketing, Nick Persico, and we expect you to eventually build a Growth team as the company continues to grow.
At Close, everyone has a voice. We encourage transparency and practice a mature approach to the work-place. In general, we don’t have strict policies, we have guidelines. Work/Life harmony is an important part of our business - we believe you bring your best to work when you practice self-care (whatever that looks like for you).
We come from 20+ countries located in 5 of the 7 continents. We’re a collection of talented humans, rich in diverse backgrounds, lifestyles, and cultures. Every year we meet up somewhere around the world to spend time with one another. These gatherings are an opportunity to strengthen the relationships within our global community.
Our team is growing in more ways than one - in the last few years, we've launched 24 babies (and counting!). Unanimously, our favorite and most impactful value is “Build a house you want to live in.” We strive to make decisions that are authentic for our people and help our customers become more successful.
Our application process was designed to promote equitable and unbiased hiring practices. We ask a small series of questions that are similar to what would be asked in the first interview. This helps us learn more about you right from the start so please be sure to answer each question thoughtfully. Each application will receive two screens by two different reviewers. Regardless of fit, you will hear back from us letting you know if we'll be moving forward.
