Why I Love Working At Outreach
Outreach is a proud paradox: we balance explosive growth with unwavering values.
We believe in agility and pivoting quickly, but we don't compromise on high standards or delivering the best quality for our customers.
Every member of the Outreach Family owns what they do, and they truly want to do the right thing, whether that’s by their customers, their colleagues, or the Sales Engagement community as a whole.
Our core values help to drive more value to our customers, and in turn more value to our company: $1.1 billion, to be exact. After an $114M Series E funding round, Outreach is now a unicorn! And that funding is going straight back into our values, our customers, and our product - like an upward spiral of returns for all.
What gives Outreach the edge? How is it that we continue to improve and build status quo(ta)-smashing sales technology and feel great doing it? It’s not for the money or the fame, it’s ingrained in our company culture.
In early 2014, our founders found themselves short on cash and in dire need of hitting our sales goal for the company to survive. To achieve an unlikely outcome, they built themselves software to equip 3 salespeople to sell like 20. Outreach was born.
From that moment on, we’ve understood how technology can change the game for revenue teams. It’s what led us to believe in the power of salespeople to drive innovation. Today, we’re a determined team on a mission to change the way companies engage with their customers throughout their lifecycle.
Our Core Values
- WE ARE HUNGRY CRAFTSPEOPLE
- WE HAVE GRIT
- WE ARE ONE WITH OUR CUSTOMER
- WE ARE HONEST
- WE GOT YOUR BACK

We embody these values both internally - through initiatives like our first employee resource group, Outreach Women’s Network (OWN) - and externally through our partnerships with numerous sales-focused organizations designed to elevate the sales profession, including Sales Hacker, Modern Sales Pros, Women Sales Pros, #GirlsClub, and more. We implemented an immigrant advocate policy to sponsor employees' H-1B visas and are committed to enabling employees to obtain green cards and become citizens.

Awards and Recognition
While the rankings, awards, and prizes from companies like LinkedIn, Gartner, and Inc. don’t define us, they remind us that we are an integral part of the Sales community. Plus, they’re fun to share on social media to show how proud we are to work here (Look, Ma, I work for an awesome company!).
Indulge me while I humble-brag for a moment...
Just this month, Inc. Magazine named us one of the Best Workplaces of 2019 and Built In Seattle named us one of the companies where you can build the future.
AA-ISP also named us a Top Service Provider of the year with a 4.9 customer rating overall. Battery Ventures ranked us as one of the Top 25 Highest Rated Private Cloud Companies to Work For. We earned the Gartner Peer Insights Customers' Choice award for Best Sales Force Automation Software of 2019.
Of course, we wouldn’t be an award-winning company without exceptional people. Three of our team members were finalists for the Women In Sales Awards. #GirlsClub #Diversity
We hosted THE greatest sales engagement conference of the year, Unleash ‘19, that all Outreach employees agreed was the best conference they’d been to, hands down, ever. (And the attendees would agree, too!)
Through the exponential growth over the past few years, we’ve held true to our values. We’ve maintained a strong company culture of hungry craftspeople, and every day we allow our team to embrace their talent and do what they do best. We are passionate about what we do and about our customers. Most of all, we have each other's backs 100%. We support and celebrate each other every day. Nobody's hard work goes unnoticed.
“Our core principles have directly driven our tremendous growth and success over the last few years while ensuring our office remains a place where people are excited to come to work every day ‒ a place where talented people grow and thrive.” - Founder & CEO Manny Medina
Thanks to our recent unicorn-status, we are hiring like crazy and looking to grow our team by almost 30% in 2019.
