Close started as a “Sales-as-a-Service” vision in 2012. We wanted to empower companies around the world to scale their sales efforts. We opened an office, hired top sales talent, and started helping our customers scale rapidly.

We needed a sales-first CRM, but our search led to disappointment. Other CRMs seemed to be focused on turning sales professionals into data entry specialists. They didn’t meet the real needs of a salesperson in an intuitive, efficient way.

We decided to fix the problem.

We developed our own internal sales application. Using it, our salespeople generated millions in revenue for hundreds of venture-backed Silicon Valley startups using our secret sales sauce: Close.

Word spread about our winning combo of tech and sales philosophy. In January 2013, we knew it was time to release Close to the world.

Today, we're 50+ team members from around the world—supporting and coaching thousands of customers to growth every single day.

Close’s core values

Our values act as a compass to guide our decisions––big or small, internal or customer-facing. Whether you’re considering joining our team or becoming a Close customer, you’ll see these values in action.

1
Build a house you want to live in
Examine long-term thinking & action.
2
No BS
Practice transparency and honesty, especially when it’s hard.
3
Invest in each other
Build successful relationships with your coworkers and customers.
4
Discipline equals freedom
Keep your word to yourself and others.
5
Strive for greatness
Constantly challenge yourself and others.

Close ❤’s Mother Earth

Our most notable core value is to build a house you want to live in. We’d like to live in a ‘house’ with abundant water, clean air, and renewable energy sources that allow for future generations to live freely on our planet.

That’s why we donate 1% of our revenue to Stripe Climate. Our contributions––along with those of many other ambitious businesses––promote research and use of technology that removes carbon dioxide from our atmosphere. There is no greater challenge than reversing the effects of climate change. Close is proud to commit resources to help solve this challenge.
