    Top procurement trends for 2017

    Top procurement trends for 2017 We've had a sustained period of growth, and people are starting to worry the economy will soften, or that growth will get even choppier. Coupled with uncertainty following the Brexit vote and the US election, this may drive companies to try to get out ahead and curtail spending plans or look at cutting costs.

Coupa Software Inc – Why Work For Us?

Coupa was founded in 2006 by two restless innovators who knew there was a better way to help companies manage their spending.

They’d build it entirely for the cloud so that it could be deployed quickly. They’d make it easy to use so that customers’ employees would actually use it. They’d make it easy to manage so that procurement pros could buy smarter, save more and devote more time to important initiatives.

Today, what was once a single product is now a full-suite of spend management applications, built from a common cloud-based platform. These include sourcing, procure-to-pay, automated invoicing and employee expenses.

Coupa has more than 450 customers in over 40 countries around the globe - from the world’s largest brands to its most exciting startups. A few of Coupa’s customers include Toyota, Coca-Cola Bottling Company, TD Bank, Nvidia, Juniper Networks, Silicon Valley Bank.

“A man’s got to have a code, a creed to live by.”— JOHN WAYNE

 You can call this the “Coupa Creed” of sorts by which every Coupanian lives by.

The “Coupa Creed” consists of the core values that we believe provide accountability to us as a company. It lets our customers know that as we grow we will not lose focus of who you are and what we promised them. It is our company’s identity that not only differentiates us from our competitors but allows us to serve as leaders in the enterprise software space. It helps us measure our impact with our customers and for the market as a whole. The core values that we had when we were only 25 people are still the same core values we have today…and we plan to keep it that way. That’s something we are madly proud of.

Coupa culture is somethin’ else. We get it done.

Our employees are talented, creative, collaborative, bright, energetic, passionate, and extremely hard-working. We recognize our employees are the ones who make it happen.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Coupa Software Inc.


    After applying online, once they took interest the process was managed via jobvite. It consisted of a series of interviews in person and over the phone. There was a little bit of everything including skill assessment, alignment with company values, etc. As far as difficulty, I would say if you are fit it will be easy, if you are not, you'll have a hard time, which is why I said "average".
    The process was long but very organized. I was kept informed of where I stood.
    The hiring manager seemed keen on finding potential versus cookie cutter skills, which I really appreciated. I got a sense of a passionate team and a cool place to work. I was offered a different position than the one for which I applied, which is a much better fit.
    Overall an orderly and pleasant process.
