An Insider's view of Abacus

What are some social events your company does?

Pancake breakfast is a big tradition at Abacus - each month a few people are picked to make the entire company a breakfast of their choosing. We also rotate members on our fun committee each quarter to plan unique outings for the whole team.


Chief Product Officer

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Abacus is changing the game for expense reporting software. Other platforms out there have really just digitized an old, outdated process. We're solving the problem in a different, more efficient way and really helping growing teams with a more scalable solution.


Vice President of Marketing

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started my career at Abacus as a Business Development Representative. During my time here, I have had the opportunity to become the inaugural Account Manager and was then promoted to Director of Customer Success. As a small team that values people greatly, there's always an opportunity to gain exposure to new areas and to mold your own path.


Director of Customer Success

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Team members at Abacus are willing to let their guard down and be vulnerable. This is the foundation required to create a trusting environment in which colleagues can vigorously disagree with one another. We believe this leads to better ideation and solutions.



What are some social events your company does?

Every quarter we name a Fun Committee to plan outings for the team. We’ve done axe throwing, a harbor cruise, karaoke, rooftop bars. It’s a really fun way to get to know each other out of the office.
