Our Values

At BlackLine, we live by three basic tenets: think, create, and serve. These principles help guide us as we develop products, solutions, and services to meet—and exceed—the needs of our customers.


We made the conscious decision in 2005 to focus solely on accounting automation and control functionality. Whether we’re developing a new product or making enhancements, we start by thinking about our users first. Our vision for modern accounting is guided by our thoughtful commitment to every customer’s transformation.


Digital transformation is driving innovation in Finance and Accounting, and our mission is to be at the forefront by helping F&A unify data and processes, automate repetitive work, and drive accountability through visibility, helping companies close faster with accuracy, control, and confidence.


We are accountable to the customers, employees, and communities we serve. We serve our customers by building long-lasting relationships focused on solving their challenges. We serve our employees by fostering a creative, thoughtful, and collaborative workplace. We serve our community by investing our time and resources to global charitable giving and service initiatives.

Commitment to Diversity & Inclusion

BlackLine was founded on two basic values: Serve our Employees and Serve our Customers. We are committed to ensuring that BlackLine provides safety, inclusion, acceptance, and support for all. BlackLine is committed to supporting the fight against racial inequality and injustice. How we treat one another—how we serve one another—is our foundation.

BlackLine’s culture is kind, open, and accepting. It’s a place where people can embrace what makes them unique, and the mix of cultural backgrounds and varying interests cultivates diverse thought and perspectives.

BlackLine Together

The BlackLine Together program provides all BlackLiners with the ability to give back and make a positive impact. BlackLine will match employee donations to human service-focused charities dollar for dollar, and BlackLine provides opportunities to give back through volunteer initiatives and campaigns.

Giving Back to the Community

Giving back to our community has been at the heart of BlackLine since the beginning. As part of this BlackLine tradition, we work with local charities, such as Habitat for Humanity and LA’s Union Rescue Mission, to provide a volunteering experience that brings together BlackLine employees, partners, and clients to serve our communities.

Sustainable & Eco-Friendly

We work hard to reduce the environmental impact of our operations through our sustainability initiatives. We reduce waste by providing reusable containers to our employees, facilitate electric vehicle use with electric vehicle charging stations, and reduce employee air travel by encouraging teleconferencing.
