Our Story

The founding team met at university and worked together through two companies in the API space before joining Y-Combinator in 2022 to build Kombo. Their interest in the future-of-work space came from their deep technical knowledge – all of the four founders had a software engineering background prior to starting Kombo – paired with the gap they observed in the market. Legacy tools could not solve modern B2B integration problems, and existing players were not focused enough on an industry to gain depth in expertise and problem-solving for HR, payroll, and ATS data.

Fast forward to now – we're a team of 20+ working with companies of all sizes – from Fortune-500 companies down to early-stage startups – to help them integrate dozens of software vendors within days instead of months. Instead of having to get their hands on a sandbox environment, build the integration code, and figure out the edge cases dozens of times, they can use a well-documented and clean abstraction provided by Kombo once.

We grew from 0 to 2M in ARR within 18 months, and we are serving over 200 software companies using us across thousands of employers globally.

We are are looking for new team members to help us grow and scale through the next phase. Let's work together.
