About the role

☎ Community Phone

remote first and always

At Community Phone, we're on a mission to make the phone more powerful and relevant than ever before.

Frustrated by a lack of humanity in the industry, we set out to create a phone company that respects customers. We keep data secure, protect against spam calls, and eliminate hidden fees and complex contracts. Our vision is a future where technology doesn’t replace human connection, it strengthens it.

As a venture-backed, Y-Combinator graduate, we have the drive, resources, and motivation to revolutionize the telecommunications industry. We leveraged our technical expertise to deliver the flexibility of VoIP with the reliability of the cellular network and brought this technology to customers' existing landlines. We launched our revolutionary product two years ago and are quadrupling our customer base year over year.

With a remarkable of 400% growth in recurring revenue in 2022, we’ve expanded from 17 remote team members to more than 80, serving clients like KFC, AT&T, state and local governments, General Motors, and homes across America. We are excited about our growth and eager to welcome team members who’ll help us lead the market with delightful customer experiences and a supportive, collaborative work environment.

Join us in our mission to put the power of the phone back into the hands of the people! Together, let’s build a future where the phone is essential in fostering meaningful connections.

About Community Phone Company

Community Phone Company YC W19 built a simple cloud phone system for businesses that don't operate a call center.

Our solution lets a business get all modern voice features (re-route if busy, greeting menu and IVR, programmable caller ID, cloud voicemail, etc) on their existing office phone and existing employee cell phones. All employees onboard instantly, no wifi required, no app to download. Businesses should not be missing out on orders because they can only take one call at a time, and they shouldn't need an IT person in order to get a modern business phone system.
