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?!

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.
