LOS ANGELES – Aug. 28, 2013 – Enterprise-class financial close software provider BlackLine Systems was honored last week as one of the ‘Best Places to Work in Los Angeles.’ Recognized by the Los Angeles Business Journal and Best Companies Group for being “successful in business and in nurturing its own,” BlackLine took the No. 9 spot on the list of medium-sized companies in the region.

Best Companies Group was responsible for the survey and analysis process for the Best Places to Work in Los Angeles program. The complete list, along with Best Companies’ description outlining the analytical process and criteria utilized to determine the ‘Top 100’, can be found in a special supplement running in the Monday, Aug. 26th, issue of the Los Angeles Business Journal.

At the root of BlackLine’s culture is a simple mission statement: “Think. Create. Serve.” The Best Companies employee survey showed that BlackLine employees across the board are happy in their jobs and proud to fulfill this mission.

Under CEO and Founder Therese Tucker’s direction, BlackLine revenues have increased more than 50 percent annually for the past six years and are on track to grow by at least that pace in 2013, with revenues up more than 55 percent in the first half of 2013 compared to the same period last year. BlackLine also has quadrupled its head count in the last few years, adding many jobs in Los Angeles, as well as in London and Sydney, as the company continues on a fast-growth trajectory.

The seventh annual Best Places to Work in Los Angeles awards celebration was hosted by the Los Angeles Business Journal at the JW Marriott at L.A. Live on Aug. 21st.
