The FreshBooks story begins back in January 2003, when Mike was running a four person design agency. When it came to billing clients, Word was frustrating to use and wasn't built to create good looking invoices. Then one day something happened that makes every record-keeper cringe: he accidentally saved over an old invoice. Knowing there had to be a better way, he created it himself. Over the next two weeks he coded up a solution that became the foundation of what is now FreshBooks.
Since these humble beginnings, over 5 million people have used FreshBooks to send, receive, print and pay invoices. Today FreshBooks has paying customers in over 120 countries. If we look at just North America alone, no one except QuickBooks Online has more online paying subscribers than FreshBooks, making FreshBooks the #1 cloud accounting solution designed for small business owners. We help everyone from the most fragile of businesses (many of them one person, first time owners) to the most vibrant businesses, collecting billions of dollars.
At FreshBooks, we believe that the right mix of ambition and opportunity can drive innovation beyond our wildest imaginations. Sure, there are perks: but the real reason people are proud to work at FreshBooks is because each person knows their opinion is respected, and they can see the difference they make in the lives of over 5 million small business owners around the world. If you want to accelerate your career, work on projects you’re passionate about and have just as much of a life outside the office as inside— you’re exactly what we’re looking for.
