For millions of teams working in dozens of industries, day-to-day business gets done on the phone. So why—despite the huge leaps we’ve taken in design and usability—does most business phone software still look, feel, and act like it was born in the 90s? OpenPhone is changing that.

We’re a new type of business phone with a mission to help people communicate better and be more productive.

We’re backed by Y Combinator and some of the best venture firms around including Tiger Global, Craft Ventures, Slow Ventures, and others. We take pride in providing an exceptional customer experience and a product people love, which is why we’re excited that our customers have rated us the #1 VoIP Provider on G2.

OpenPhone is the modern, sophisticated answer to the clunky, outdated phone systems that have been slowing down businesses for years. And after earning over 25,000 happy customers and $56 million in funding in just four years, it’s safe to say we’re onto something big.

Are you someone who loves helping customers? Do you appreciate new technology? If you do, then you might be perfect for the Jr. Product Specialist role at OpenPhone! As part of the Jr. Product Specialist team, you will have the opportunity to become a product expert and be a founding member of the team.

At OpenPhone, we believe that you can make a meaningful impact, and we’re looking for someone who shares that vision. You will play a crucial role in the initial interactions between customers and OpenPhone, so we need someone who is curious and can make a great impression.
