Mission: Be the essential source for B2B decisions

G2 Crowd – Why Work For Us?





G2 Crowd is the world’s leading business software and services review platform, leveraging its 200,000+ user reviews read by nearly 900,000 buyers each month to help them make better purchasing decisions. By bringing the collective power of trusted peers to the forefront, business buyers now have transparency when evaluating B2B software technologies and services.

OUR VISION

The current approach to buying business technology is broken. Buyers spend too much time sifting through spin, reading outdated analyst reports, and sitting through endless meetings. After all this, buyers still lack confidence in their choice of technology and most projects fail to meet their expectations. By capturing collective wisdom, G2 Crowd will make purchasing business technology as easy as buying consumer products.

 

OUR CULTURE

At our core, G2 Crowd strives to build a meaningful business that brings joy to the lives of our users and our team. People join G2 Crowd if they enjoy being challenged, like friendly competition, and can bring fun to every task. We take care of our employees by providing fair compensation, recognizing their brilliant contributions, and letting them find meaning in the mission of the company. As a team, we share a commitment to each other and the company that drives us relentlessly forward.

 

Our values help guide us in the decisions we make and are core to sculpting our culture.

Buyers come first

Be compassionate and authentic 

Learn quickly and continuously

Expect Excellence

Keep an Entrepreneurial Spirit

Work with Joy

G2 Crowd was founded to create a place where people will love to work. We strive to create meaning in work and provide more than just a job and more than a career: a true calling. We pride ourselves on having an environment where people can enjoy coming to work every day, by supporting our employees in their professional and personal lives.

    Enterprise Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at G2 Crowd (San Francisco, CA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Phone screen with the recruiter, then took the personality assessment and aptitude test, much like the SAT. After that I had meetings with the VP of Sales, Director of Sales, and Account Executives. The following week I came in for a final interview and mock presentation. I received an offer the same day and accepted. I also had the chance to speak with the CEO about his vision for the company before singing the offer.
