About Productiv

Productiv is a rapidly growing Series B startup that enables enterprises’ IT and Finance teams to take a data- and analytics-centric approach to understanding and driving adoption of SaaS applications at scale.

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 the hardest problems and the largest opportunities together, working as a tight-knit highly collaborative team. If you would have leaped at joining Amazon in 1997, Google in 1999, Salesforce in 2001, or Facebook in 2006, this is your chance to have a massive industry-level impact.

Our Vision

An explosion in enterprise SaaS adoption has led to a rapid increase in both the number of enterprises moving to an all-SaaS world, and the number of SaaS applications being used per company. However, enterprises lack tools to know what applications they are using, if they are using them right, or if they are even using the right applications. Productiv solves these by providing automated and intelligent ways for enterprises to manage and optimize their growing SaaS portfolio while maximizing employee productivity.

To accomplish this, we use our engineering muscle as our biggest advantage. We leverage cutting-edge technologies to build enterprise-grade Saas Management web-applications and backend systems. Oh, and we need great engineers as well (this is where you come in...read on).
