About the Team  
Data is at the core of Outreach's strategy. It drives ourselves and our customers to the highest levels of success. We use it for everything from customer health scores and revenue dashboards, to operational metrics of our AWS infrastructure, to helping increase product engagement and user productivity  through natural language understanding, to predictive analytics and causal inference via experimentation. As our customer base continues to grow, we are looking towards new ways of leveraging our data to deeper understand our customers’ needs and deliver new products and features to help continuously improve their customer engagement workflows.

About Outreach

  • Outreach is a communication platform built from the ground up to help people communicate with customers more effectively. Today we focus on the sales organization, helping them engage with their prospects and customers through email, calling, and LinkedIn communication flows. Our customers spend the majority of their day living inside our software, relying on it to be more effective communicators with their audience. 

  • Since our first days here at Outreach learning about how people communicate, we became obsessed with understanding our customers’ problems. As a result, we’ve built the most loved product on the market and won the hearts and minds (and business) of some incredible organizations around the world.
