ScaleFactor – Why Work For Us?

In 2013, ScaleFactor founder and CEO Kurt Rathmann was determined to find a solution for the accounting problems he was facing as a CFO. He was on a quest to automate the painful, time consuming accounting tasks he and his team were forced to complete manually. In 2014, Kurt started ScaleFactor at his living room table. The company grew from one to four employees before the year’s end.

Today, ScaleFactor’s intuitive software automates accounting, tax and finance tasks to save business owners time and money. ScaleFactor’s team of finance, software development, marketing and sales professionals share a common goal: to empower business owners to make the best strategic and financial decisions.

    I have been working at ScaleFactor full-time (Less than a year)


    Absolutely love working here. I've worked for startups and large corporations before and this is the first time I've truly felt like I was a part of the team. I'm excited to see what 2019 looks like for us.


    They truly work on concerns that you bring up and your opinion matters. I don't have a con.

    I applied online. I interviewed at ScaleFactor.


    Applied via Glassdoor. About 10 days later the TA rep reached out via email to set up a 15 minute initial screen call. She was very professional, friendly, and represented the company well. We figured out quickly it wouldn't be a good fit on some details related to seniority and both agreed to stop the process but keep in touch.
