Coupa Software Inc – Why Work For Us?

Coupa was founded in 2006 by two restless innovators who knew there was a better way to help companies manage their spending.

They’d build it entirely for the cloud so that it could be deployed quickly. They’d make it easy to use so that customers’ employees would actually use it. They’d make it easy to manage so that procurement pros could buy smarter, save more and devote more time to important initiatives.

Today, what was once a single product is now a full-suite of spend management applications, built from a common cloud-based platform. These include sourcing, procure-to-pay, automated invoicing and employee expenses.

Coupa has more than 450 customers in over 40 countries around the globe - from the world’s largest brands to its most exciting startups. A few of Coupa’s customers include Toyota, Coca-Cola Bottling Company, TD Bank, Nvidia, Juniper Networks, Silicon Valley Bank.

At Coupa, we are looking for the people who are driven to succeed.  In our fast paced environment, people are rewarded for their hard work and commitment while encouraged to bring ideas and their creative thoughts to the forefront.  We all share in our success at Coupa and look for people who are ready to be a part of a success driven team.


Delivering Software innovation that breeds responsible spending while impacting the company bottom line. 

At Coupa, our singular goal is to change the way companies do business with a new category we now call Value-as-a-Service. We work with customers around the globe, in every type of business, each with their unique challenges.  We’re working with them every day to transform the way their entire business approaches spend.  Our technology solutions speak for themselves and we strive for industry leadership in everything we do.

“A man’s got to have a code, a creed to live by.”— JOHN WAYNE

 You can call this the “Coupa Creed” of sorts by which every Coupanian lives by.

The “Coupa Creed” consists of the core values that we believe provide accountability to us as a company. It lets our customers know that as we grow we will not lose focus of who you are and what we promised them. It is our company’s identity that not only differentiates us from our competitors but allows us to serve as leaders in the enterprise software space. It helps us measure our impact with our customers and for the market as a whole. The core values that we had when we were only 25 people are still the same core values we have today…and we plan to keep it that way. That’s something we are madly proud of.

Coupa culture is somethin’ else. We get it done.

Our employees are talented, creative, collaborative, bright, energetic, passionate, and extremely hard-working. We recognize our employees are the ones who make it happen.
