Gearset – Why Work With Us?

We collaborate with each other
We’ve built a collaborative culture that thrives on feedback, both from colleagues and our end users. We work together closely within teams and across the company, to produce our best possible work. We keep everyone up to speed with what everyone else is working on, and how the company is doing.

We equip and support everyone
We make sure everyone has everything they need to work how they want. If you need as many monitors as you can fit on your desk, that’s no problem. The same goes for books, software, or whatever else you might need.

We enjoy working together
We don't do bean-bag chairs and nerf guns, because stuff like this is much better.

We steer well clear of the ‘corporate fun-day’ atmosphere. There are various things we enjoy doing together regularly: climbing, baking (well, eating each other’s baking), gaming, walking, football, juggling, etc. On top of the everyday stuff, we also do things we like the look of too, such as theatre trips and the Cambridge Beer Festival.

    Gearset doesn't just talk the talk, it really does care about its values, its employees and its customers. Joining Gearset means joining a family of smart, friendly and committed people who just enjoy working together to deliver the very best they can. We help each other, we learn from each other and we have fun together. Everyone is valued for the unique contribution they make to the team. Every day is exciting, as the company is growing fast and people are encouraged to take ownership and go beyond what even they themselves might have thought was possible. It's exciting and rewarding.


    There aren't any cons.

    Sales Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cambridge, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Gearset (Cambridge, England) in December 2018.


    I came across Gearset through a recruiter who I had an initial interview with over Skype to assess my suitability. I was then put forward for a first stage interview at Gearsets' Cambridge office.

    I was asked to prepare a 5 minute presentation on what Gearset do in advance, focusing on the comparison of Salesforce orgs using Gearset. I was also asked to do several tasks such as writing a sales email, critiquing a sales email, responding to a live chat and making a mock sales call. They focused on the technical side of my experience and went into detail about my current role in software sales.

    I was subsequently invited to attend a second interview in Cambridge. This was a less technical more competency based interview. They were looking to assess whether I would fit into the company culture and they gave me the chance to ask my questions about Gearset.

    Whilst challenging as expected, my overall interview experience was extremely positive and I was made to feel very welcome by the team at Gearset.
