Security Engineer

About Zendesk (and Base)

We founded Base in 2009 based on a strong internal belief that businesses deserve better, smarter software. We’ve grown to over 5,000 customers across the globe and in September 2018 got acquired by Zendesk to shape the future of customer relationship management together.

Our mentality is to take the art of sales and transform it into actionable information to help sales organizations take their growth to the next level. We believe in a collaborative working style with a bias towards rapid prototyping, experimentation and a strong curiosity for our customers and their needs.

Only a very tiny fraction of software ever built actually made a lasting, significant change - moved the needle. For us, this is one of these chances when the right idea, the right people and circumstances come together and create an opportunity to make a small dent in the universe.
