About ChangeEngine

ChangeEngine is founded by successful Silicon Valley/UK SaaS entrepreneurs who’ve previously raised investment from Aaron Levie (Box.net), Eric Schmidt (Google board), Dharmesh Shah (HubSpot) and many other SV luminaries before exiting prior ventures.

Now, we are empowering companies to communicate with their employees in the most intelligent and impactful way possible. Delivering critical and beneficial information about what their company has to offer, such as careers, benefits, software, coaching, compliance, diversity, and much more. As a result, we enrich people's work-life experience by highlighting initiatives that are truly meaningful, whilst staying within their current working flow. 

Simply put, we’re pushing companies to be the best-in-class when it comes to their employees. 

We’re a true startup, meaning you’ll be a fundamental part of the company, our culture and it’s DNA. By joining this early on, you get to experience the excitement, wins and energy that a young company offers!
