What We Do

Outreach is a communication platform built from the ground up to help people communicate more effectively. Today we focus on the sales organization, helping them engage with their prospects and customers through email, calling and LinkedIn communication flows.

To put it into perspective, our customers spend the majority of their day living inside our software, relying on it to be more effective communicators with their audience. We think it’s pretty cool that we get to build the communication platform of the future; a product that our users cherish.

Outreach was founded in 2014, and we are now over 80 employees strong. Since our first days learning about how people communicate, we became obsessed with understanding our customers’ problems, and as a result, we’ve built by far the most loved product on the market, and have won the hearts and minds (and business) of some incredible organizations around the world.

In addition to our relentless focus on the customer, we’ve received over $30 million in venture funding, we’ve won Seattle Business Magazine’s 100 Best Places to Work, and have been ranked #1 for 2016 Sales Automation/Acceleration software by Ambition.

We aren’t slowing down any time soon.

Who We Are, Who We Hire

Our company is headquartered in Seattle, but we also have an office in San Francisco and in State College, PA (both for sales and marketing). If you speak to us, you’ll probably see that across any geography, across all our roles and departments, at our heart we are a large group of like-minded individuals working towards a common goal, pushing each other to be better tomorrow than we were today.

We’re a team of problem solvers and overachievers who seek out others who are also passionate and relentless at their respective crafts. We want to work with people who are ready to buckle up and be a part of an incredible ride. We work hard not because we’re told to, but because we genuinely love what we do.

If there’s one main message we want you to remember about us, it’s that we push others to be best in class at whatever they do, remain humble, and run through brick walls to accomplish their goals. If you come and join us, we’ll give you ownership and challenges, and the team support and encouragement to help you hit your personal goals. We’ll be stronger together.
