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.
We’re looking to add an experienced SaaS email marketer to the team to help the company grow, engage, and convert its ~200k email newsletter audience into paying customers.
