At BambooHR, you can do work differently than you’ve ever done it before. Yes, we love building great HR software. It makes us happy. (Or nerds.) But what makes us happiest is knowing our software makes life better for our clients. We believe work should be an outlet for greatness. If we can free up your time to do great work, everybody wins.

Our Founders

  Ben Peterson and Ryan Sanders didn’t start BambooHR just to make a buck. They wanted to make an exceptional product that customers would love and a company where employees would enjoy coming to work. If they could accomplish both—spoiler alert: they did—they knew financial success would follow. But success at BambooHR is about much more than making money. It’s about loving what we do because it makes a difference, and knowing our work supports our personal lives—not the other way around.

Our Culture

  Our values inform everything we do at BambooHR—they set the standard for how we think, how we communicate, and how we act. Our values aren’t just for cute posters we only point to when it’s convenient. We’re proud of how our values guide the way we do business and the way we interact with our customers and each other, every day.

Our Product

  We’re not just a software company; we’re creating an experience that helps over a million employees have the best HR experience possible and be more successful every day in their work. BambooHR sets people free to do great work—not just HR pros, but entire organizations, including our own.
Key Features:
  • We set people free to do great work.
    • People are the key to workplace excellence. If you give HR knowledge and time to work with people, they can build the kind of culture, policies, and people practices that set entire organizations free to be better at what they do. And when you give employees the power to help themselves, they feel more valued and capable as contributors rather than simple assets. BambooHR is designed to do both. That’s what makes us different. ​
  • You can feel the love.
    • No one else puts the customer experience at the heart of everything quite like we do. We’re always listening to gain a better understanding of how we can help you succeed, because if you’re succeeding, we’re succeeding. We make sure our customers know we care. That’s the BambooHR Love.
  • We built BambooHR® for SMBs.
    • When it comes to building strong cultures and creating great places to work, being small makes everything easier. That’s why we’re obsessed with crafting solutions for small and medium-sized businesses. And we’re not just finding our niche, either: 89 percent of our customers are SMBs, and we’ve been delivering award-winning HR software to them for over 10 years.
  • We’re easy to adopt & even easier to use.
    • We know your reputation is on the line when you bring something new to your organization—especially something that changes the way people work. That’s why we built BambooHR to be intuitive, clear, and easy to use. People immediately get it, they love using it, and they’ll love you for choosing our software. Promise.

  • We’re all about good value.
    • Providing great value isn’t just about being affordable. It’s about knowing what features you need right now and anticipating how you will grow. It’s about making sure you’ve mastered all the tools before you hand them off to your people. And it’s about providing insights—the kind that help you strengthen your culture and make your entire organization more efficient, not just your HR practice. That’s why we rank #1 in providing the best value to HR.
