We want the next generation of ambitious startups to build their businesses with us, on Puzzle. Because the world needs their ingenuity and Puzzle exists to set them up for lasting success.
Numbers are the basic truth of a business. If we can understand the numbers, we can understand how our business works. When we understand how our business works, we make better decisions.
Puzzle is a whole new way for founders and finance teams to work. We are the new center of a modern financial stack, evolving accounting and finance into a system of financial intelligence.
Our mission is to give leaders confidence in their most important financial decisions.
No company asked for slow, silo’d or inaccurate data to make financial decisions. But we accept that this is just the way it has always been done. Until now. We built a better solution, I will never go back.
Working with early-stage startups in past roles, I knew that the current state of startup finance was far from ideal - waiting weeks for outdated financials and managing metrics and models manually in a disconnected, separate system. I wanted something better to exist, so I joined Puzzle.
Puzzle will revolutionize the lives of CFO's and CEO's by giving them a reliable and secure piece of financial software, so they can focus on building and growing their business.
At Puzzle, we believe that your financial data belongs to you. We wanted to build an accounting system that would make our customers believe that, too.
Puzzle provides value faster than any accounting system on the market. You’ll be up and running in minutes after connecting it to the tools your business already uses. Once you’ve set it up, you’ll wonder why other tools make accounting seem so complicated.
Previous companies viewed accounting as a task that had to be done; at Puzzle, we make accounting the tool that empowers business decision-making.
If you look at any list of recommended software for new companies, you'll see that every company on that list was built in the last 10-15 years…except accounting. It's time to change that.
I am intrigued by Puzzle pushing the boundaries of the status quo: making financials automated as opposed to manual entry, actionable in real-time as opposed to it being a lagging indicator and easy to understand as opposed to having to have an accounting background - all within a great UI.
Accounting is a slow process, yet it is at the heart of every business. By building Puzzle, I am doing my part to bring about a transformative new era of real-time financial decision-making.
We understand trust is not given, but earned. We increase trust by investing in data security, data integrity, calcuation accuracy, auditabilty and product transparency.
We focus on learning, iterating and improving. We encourage strong opinions that are weakly held, and that our diverse backgrounds and experiences drive better outcomes for our customers.
We believe business value created for our customers will add value to our business, in that order. We get excited about solving big, ambitious challenges that have a large impact on our business and in the industry, and appreciate unfiltered customer feedback.
Our success will be determined by our ability to recruit and retain great talent, and work together as a team. We value low ego, high integrity and no surprises. We proactively ask others for feedback, and proactively help colleagues challenge themselves and grow.
