2019 Inc. 5000 Names Kyriba Among Fastest-growing Companies in America

By Daniel Shaffer August 21, 2019

Two-thousand and nineteen has been a massive year for Kyriba, who was just named by Inc. 5000 as one of America’s fastest-growing and successful private companies for the seventh time. This is a big deal for large, established companies since only one and a half percent of the tens of thousands of companies that apply to the Inc. 5000 list have made it seven times, according to the editor in chief of Inc. Media. This recent accolade follows a $160 million growth round led by Bridgepoint with a resulting valuation of more than one billion dollars and gained status as a ‘unicorn’ tech startup.  

To get a better sense of the community and culture at Kyriba, we interviewed a wide range of employees from San Diego, St. Cloud and London. We asked all the teams what they enjoy most about working at Kyriba and what we found was that the themes of diversity, collaboration, innovation and culture came up again and again.

Diversity
“It has been an interesting journey working with Kyriba and seeing the company and teams grow,” said Ellie Ardelean, vice president of field marketing, San Diego. “It is a privilege working with such diverse talent here at Kyriba.”

“I wanted to work for a company that had resources, and was ready for DevOps to make an industry impact,” said Boris Karaoglanov, director of DevOps, San Diego. “I joined Kyriba because of its diversity, ideas, goals and talent.” 

Collaboration
“I started off on the support team in the New York office, and then I had the opportunity to move out to Kyriba’s headquarters in San Diego to build a new team,” said Alex Cheung, lead for client support, San Diego. “There’s so much opportunity for collaboration with different teams from around the world.”

Innovation
“When people ask me ‘Why Kyriba?,’ the answer is pretty straightforward,” said Valentin Martinez Sepulveda, channel sales manager, St. Cloud. Working in a transformative industry that is disrupting the fintech market is fun and challenging.”

“Kyriba is a very unique company because of its expertise in serving treasurers and financial experts,” said Christine Rolland, director of regional marketing, St. Cloud. “The technology and innovation of the product is what attracted me to Kyriba. The fact that I can bring my expertise on board and collaborate with colleagues directly was a positive.”

International Culture
“Kyriba is a great company to work for,” said Abby Bickford, director of Northern Europe, Middle East and ASEA marketing, London. “What I value most at Kyriba is the global presence of the company and being able to work with different people from different cultures.”

“For me, the best part of Kyriba is the international environment,” said Tatiana Beber Kassick, software engineer, St. Cloud. “It is great being able to work with people from all over the world with different views and to have the opportunity to travel and learn new work dynamics in other offices, like San Diego and Minsk.”  

Fast growth at Kyriba is fueled by strong demand for its cloud-based treasury and finance solutions that enable CFOs, treasury and finance teams to protect against loss and accelerate value creation. 

More than 750 employees in 12 offices and many remote locations around the world support the San Diego based company. San Diego is ranked fourth among the 10 Hottest Startup Cities in America, according to Inc. 

The culture at Kyriba is energized by cross-functional collaboration with diverse employees from around the world, and the opportunity to contribute to a unique Fintech that is changing the way finance does business.
