“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 that our employees are the ones who make it happen.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Coupa Software Inc full-time (More than a year)


    Coupa’s culture is highly collaborative, with some of the best alignment across the company that I have ever seen from any company I have worked for. Our mission, strategy and values are strong, and they are all clearly communicated from the top. The company aligns beautifully to ensure that we live authentically and according to our stated values, that we work toward accomplishing our mission, and that we execute effectively on our strategy. Coupa employees are hard workers and good people, who come together beautifully to help each other ‘get it done.’ The energy level is high; the commitment to our customers’ success is real and authentic, and the customers feel this and they let us know that they feel it! This in turns helps us keep our own enthusiasm and drive high.

    We have a great market opportunity and we are going after it effectively, with the best, most innovative, most value-laden products on the market. And we are having a lot of fun while we do it! I highly recommend this company!


    It’s not a slow-paced environment! For me this isn’t a con, but I confess to having days (and weeks, sometimes) when I wished for a little less 'excitement.'

    Also they have this fizzy water machine, and the water is pretty flat and not very fizzy.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the alignment, the authenticity and the clear communications going, even as we grow and scale.
