280 Hope Street , 2nd Floor Mountain View, CA 94041 US
COMPANY DESCRIPTION: Our client is a startup in stealth mode that is in the process of creating an end to end mid-tier ERP software that is made for the SaaS industry.
The Company knows that no one truly loves their accounting software because no software is the end to end solution. For example, if you use NetSuite, you still would need to use Zuora and/or Flocast to complete all revenue related tasks. This company’s goal is to create a software that is made for SaaS company’s that is all encompassing where you don’t need to use products outside of the software.
