The Company

Checkbox is a Sequoia-backed technology start-up with a mission to empower anyone to build software. This is important to us because with our rapidly digitising world, we believe the power of digital creation needs to be accessible to everyone, not just IT teams. Seeing non-technical users surprisingly delighted when they are able to create in ways they never thought they ever could using our technology, motivates us. Across the enterprise, users use drag and drop to build their own solutions that automate manual workflows, analysis, and document creation. Since launching the product at the beginning of 2019, we have signed on big brands like Deloitte, Telstra, Allianz and Coca-Cola, winning 14 awards globally. As a team, we have incredible talent that have previously led global SaaS success stories and Co-Founders in the Forbes 30 Under 30 list. As people, we are high performers who are positive, collaborative, open and direct in our communication, and care a lot about this business and each other.
