About Vessel

Why Now?

Over 90% of businesses use a CRM, but many companies with integrations only support 1-2 CRMs. It takes 65 CRMs to cover 60% of the market meaning existing companies with integrations are missing out on a huge number of potential customers.

Why Us?

We just raised $2.5M in seed funding from Accel and Bain Capital Ventures and are growing rapidly. Additionally, the Co-founders of Vessel were both engineers at an enterprise Saas company building out integrations (where they got the idea for Vessel) and have been working together for years.

What else?

Working at a startup is hard enough, so we've created a generous benefits package and culture that make working at Vessel enjoyable and rewarding. We offer: above-market salary and equity, hybrid/in-office/or remote work, unlimited PTO (15 days encouraged), in-office lunch & dinner, Phone & Internet stipend, $150 WFH stipend, $150 quarterly growth stipend.
