In 2000, software entrepreneur Therese Tucker asked one of her customers about what additional solutions they might need. It was quickly apparent there was one area that drove accountants crazy. The financial close. It involved tedious, repetitive work against a ticking clock. The close caused stress, burnout, and worse, errors. These problems inspired her to create a solution to help accountants with the close. And BlackLine was born.
Our powerful Financial Automation and Controls platform transforms the lives of accountants and finance professionals. It takes the menial, repetitive grunt work off their plate, so they are able to focus on challenging, strategic analysis, adding more value to their companies. It reduces their stress and the long hours they spend away from their families. This is the promise of what we call Modern Finance.
Since its founding, BlackLine has grown enormously. We now dominate the category we pioneered, and have expanded our offerings to encompass many key financial and accounting processes. We’re a global company, with offices in Australia, London, France, South Africa, and Belgium. Our software is now used by 50% of the Fortune 500.
Therese launched BlackLine by listening to the needs of her customers. We practice the same level of empathy with our team. We work with every employee to cultivate a career that’s unique to their goals and interests, which fuels their growth and passion. We offer a diverse, open and collaborative environment, with teams that work cross-functionally. We also provide 100% paid benefits for medical, dental, vision, life insurance, disability and much more. We know that when we care for our employees, they care for our customers. It’s no surprise then, that BlackLine has a 99% retention rate, virtually unheard of in the software business.
If you have a passion for helping people, BlackLine is the right place for you. Become a part of our family, and help make a difference in people’s lives. And let’s move finance forward, together.
