An Insider's view of closerlook, inc.

What are some social events your company does?

Funny you should ask, as I am one of the super-secret members of our super-secret MIRTH committee. Basically, we are fun planners. Let’s see, dip/chili/baking contests, random pancake breakfasts, team potlucks, beach day in the middle of winter, and one time we had a hobby horse competition. Oh, and who can forget beer o’clock every Friday?!


Office Manager

What projects are you most excited about?

We are putting a heavy focus on creating progressive web apps since a majority of our end users are mobile users. It allows regular webpages to behave like a native app on a mobile device to make the experience as seamless as possible. We are also focusing on tools for sales reps so they are able to quickly yet effectively engage HCPs.


Interactive Lead, Manager

How does the company support your career growth?

The most tangible way closerlook has supported my career growth is through their broad and unwavering support of my MBA degree at Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Management. Not only have they been understanding and accommodating of my additional time (and mental!) commitments, but they’ve encouraged me to share with my teammates what I’ve learned
