At Productiv, we’re going after the problem that every company faces today: an explosion of SaaS applications in-use (always hundreds, sometimes thousands), with more and more purchased outside of IT. Managing all of these applications, from securing them to provisioning them to renewing them to answering questions of “am I getting fair business value from each“ is overwhelmingly complicated in breadth and depth.
Our real-time data- and analytics-centric approach to enterprise SaaS management at scale is trusted by CIOs at innovative companies like Square, Equinix, Okta, Zoom, Dropbox, Equifax, and Uber as their system of record. We’re on a journey to transform how enterprises think about SaaS and the impact it can have on their organizations. Productiv has raised over $70M from Tier 1 investors including Accel, IVP, Norwest, and Okta and is led by experienced founders from Google, Amazon, and LinkedIn. Productiv is a team like no other. We’re a fast-moving results-oriented team with a strong culture that values family, fun, diversity, and mutual respect as much as earning customer love. We tackle hard problems and huge opportunities together, working as a tight-knit highly collaborative team.
