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!


Account Executive

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!


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.
