If the software that you use in your personal life is so easy and intuitive to use, why can't business software be that way too? At Freshworks, we agree with you! We pride ourselves on building powerful, sophisticated software that's fun and easy to use. And makes it easy for businesses to delight their customers and employees.

An Insider's view of Freshworks

What’s the vibe like in the office?

One of the things I've loved most since starting at Freshworks is how much the team values company culture. Everyone in the office is working hard, celebrating successes, and all the while having a great time. Collaboration is also a big aspect of the sales team - everyone is quick to jump in to help!

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

It is great being part of a team that is helping companies hit the refresh switch on business software. Freshworks is letting businesses know that their software doesn’t have to be clunky or expensive. Being able to help companies overcome these challenges is truly rewarding!


Senior Enterprise Account Executive

What makes someone successful on your team?

You have to be a team player. We are all in each other's corners and the collaborative and interactive workspace is one that I have come to value greatly. You will be presented with ongoing opportunities to grow, learn, and step into leadership roles. The willingness to volunteer for these roles and step into new challenges is a valuable attribute.

Freshworks provides innovative customer engagement software for businesses of all sizes, making it easy for teams to acquire, close and keep their customers for life. We provide refreshing software that your teams will love. All our products are ready to go, easy to use, and offer great value to any type of business.


Founder & CEO

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

As a distributed workforce I try to include visual elements throughout my collaboration process. By sharing the "why" and vision I can more easily collate critiques and ideas. I also keep internal notes on interactions in my Evernote; being organized helps me communicate directives in a more progressive manner.
