About us


Circle was founded by Sid Yadav (CEO), Rudy Santino, and Andrew Guttormsen in late 2019.

Circle's founders are ex-Teachable ($250m exit in March 2020) and ex-Gumroad — two notable platforms that have helped its creators generate over $1 billion in revenue. Sid and Andrew were on the founding team at Teachable, and helped it scale to over $30m ARR.

We've raised ~$30m from investors like Tiger Global, Notation Capital, Box Group, Harry Stebbings, Todd Goldberg, Scott Belsky (CPO, Adobe), Jason Warner (CTO, Github), Dharmesh Shah (CTO Hubspot), Soleio, and the founders/CEOs of Zapier, Superhuman, Teachable, Gumroad, ConvertKit, Morning Brew, Rent the Runway, Codecademy, Front, Framer, and ProductHunt.

Flexible working at Circle

Circle is a team of around 120 (and growing!) based in countries all over the world, but we meet twice per year (optional attendance) for company retreats in the most beautiful places we can find.

Our approach to flexible working is generally async and from anywhere. However, we also take into consideration the role and needs of the team when hiring. For example, roles that are customer-facing are likely to be hired in time zones where most of our customer are. Roles that require a high level of team collaboration are more likely to be hired in similar time zones to the rest of that particular team.

Approach to diversity & inclusion

As a fully-remote international company, diversity is baked into our DNA. Here’s how our CEO, Sid Yadav, frames our hiring mission: “Let’s find talent in underserved and under-represented corners of the world, set them up to do the best work of their lives, and in turn, change their life.” To achieve this hiring mission, we offer competitive U.S. benchmarked compensation no matter where someone’s located in the world, and we proactively seek candidates who expand representation of backgrounds, cultures and lived experiences in our teams.

What do we think of Circle?

Circle's incredible FlexScore is a credit to what a wonderfully flexible environment they have built. It has been a joy to work with the Circle team during this process and to have the opportunity to understand how flexible they are and how many amazing benefits they offer and just how much their employees value working for them!

Meet who might be hiring you

Hi! I'm Andy, a Talent Acquisition Partner with Circle.

One of the most common questions I get asked by candidates is "Why did you decide to work at Circle?"

My answer is always around how our leaders are carrying this company forward. They decided early on to not get swept up in multiple rounds of funding, and a 'growth at all cost' mentality. Instead, they aimed to create a more stable place to work that moves forward with intention, values steady long-term growth, and ultimately stands on its own two feet. This has been incredibly refreshing in an otherwise volatile tech market, and it's why I feel fortunate to get to work here.
