DocuSign – Why Work For Us?

undefinedSince inception in 2003, DocuSign has been on a mission to accelerate business and simplify life for companies and people around the world.

We pioneered the development of e-signature technology, and today offer the world’s #1 e-signature solution. It’s just part of our broader cloud-based System of Agreement Platform, which allows companies of all sizes and across all industries to quickly modernize and digitize the entire agreement process—all the way from preparing agreements to signing, enacting and managing them—from almost anywhere in the world, on practically any device.

Our value is simple to understand: Legacy, paper-based agreement processes are manual, slow, expensive, and error-prone. We eliminate the paper, automate the process, and connect it to all the other systems that businesses are already using.

Our platform has 350+ prebuilt integrations with popular business apps. In addition, our API enables embedding and connecting DocuSign with customers’ websites, mobile apps, and custom workflows. All told, today this enables more than 425,000 customers and hundreds of millions of users to measure turnaround time in minutes rather than in days, substantially reduce costs, and largely eliminate errors.

Work of your life. 

Our mission is to simplify and accelerate the way organizations and individuals come to agreement. We are committed to building trust and making the world more agree-able for our employees, customers and the communities in which we live and work.  

You can count on us be honest, open, and do our best to do what’s right, every day. 

Here, everything is equal. Everyone has an equal opportunity to succeed, to be heard, to exchange ideas openly, to build lasting relationships, and to do the work of their life.    

Best of all, you will be able to feel deep pride in the work you do, because your contribution helps us make the world better than we found it.  And for that, you’ll be loved by us, our customers, and the world in which we live.

Employee Resource Groups at DocuSign

We build products that help bring parties to agreement. So, it should not be surprising that we welcome different perspectives that reflects a broad range of experience, thoughts, geography, age, background, gender identity, sexual orientation, language, culture and many other characteristics. We aim to build a culture where we can all do the best thinking and work of our lives together. And in doing so, we create a greater sense of community, a shared sense of accomplishment and an authentic feeling of belonging. Employee Resource Groups are active at DocuSign and help further our goal to build an inclusive culture with diverse teams.

Women@DocuSign drives innovation and business success by encouraging women’s ideas, skills and experiences by intentionally and equally tapping women to develop or partake in solutions for our customers, products and ensure DocuSign is a place where we can all do the best work of our careers.

BOLD (Brown Organization for Leadership and Development) champions initiatives that promote and encourage opportunities for people of color in hiring, retention and career advancement; and enrich the communities where we live & work through outreach programs and charitable events. 

DocuPride creates an open and inclusive culture for the LGBTQIA community that allows everyone to be their authentic selves each and every day. We strengthen our communities and promote policies, opportunities, and activities that will increase diversity and equality. 

DocuVets integrates the experiences, values, and knowledge of veterans into the workplace and builds a culture that embraces and supports the transition from military service to civilian life. We support former and active military members and their families through activities and developmental opportunities.

    I have been working at DocuSign full-time (More than a year)


    THE PEOPLE - Since the company went public 5 months ago, people are legitimately lit up. It's kind of like something in the air has everybody a bit more chipper than usual. Weird.

    THE LEADERSHIP TEAM - Dan and his team are doing a killer job. How do we know that? They give themselves "grades" every quarter at our All-Hands meetings. They follow up on the things they said that they would do and didn't do and keep everybody up-to-date on progress. Obviously, the company has been performing at a high level and when that happens, sometimes a leadership team loses sight of the "small stuff". Not this team. They care. They have increased benefits, they've been proactive about relevant topics i.e. equal pay, diversity, leadership pathways etc. If Dan's approval rating tells you anything, the company as a whole has a lot of confidence in what Dan and his C-Suite team are doing on a day-to-day basis as they lead our company post-IPO.

    COMPENSATION - From my understanding DocuSign comp is competitive across the board. For salespeople you have an OTE number and the Sales Ops team is generally pretty fair with territories/quotas, etc. Name of the game is: work hard, hit your number and help everybody else hit theirs and we all get paid.

    INNOVATION - Our CTO, Ron Hirson and CMO/CSO Scott Olrich have been hyper-focused on building out the DocuSign suite and building out DocuSign's "System of Agreement". From a sales perspective this is great. We have a product with a team that is constantly making improvements, making strategic acquisitions, building new technologies which all leads to a final product that's easier to sell to our prospects and customers.

    GROWTH - We're on a good path with no signs of slowing down and a lot of untapped market potential. This is great news. Because the company is growing fast, there's a lot of opportunity to grow your career and step up into new roles.

    BENEFITS - DocuSign has a pretty extensive benefits package. And anything that is missing, the Benefits team is usually already thinking about or is in the process of rolling out. Some that may be interesting:

    - Generous stock purchase plan.
    - employee is offered RSU's when they're hired
    - Bike lockers
    - Full Health/Vision/Dental insurance
    - 401k (match coming soon)
    - Paternity/Maternity leave
    - Commuter stipend
    - DocuSign IMPACT: Donation match for any contributions made to organizations of your choice
    - 3 business days VTO
    - 20 business days PTO
    - Several company holidays
    - Referral bonus
    - Outside Education stipend
    - All kinds of snacks/beverages in the kitchens


    Benefits missing:
    - Gym membership reimbursement/stipend
    - Commuter stipend could be higher

    Advice to Management

    As our company grows, keep paying attention to our hiring processes and developing our managers and leaders. Let's ensure that we keep hiring top talent and that we're investing in our talent internally. It's always a bummer when we lose a good colleague when we could have just paid a bit more attention.
