HappyCo

We Value Happy at HappyCo

We authentically believe in building happiness into our products and workplace, and delivering solutions that solve real problems — all of which ultimately translate to very Happy customers.

A Happy Mission

HappyCo builds beautiful mobile and cloud-based applications for smarter business operations. We’re leaders in Mobile Enterprise 3.0, — a new era in enterprise computing that embraces vertical, mobile-first solutions that delight business users and don’t demand a large IT department to run. Our mission at HappyCo is to transform a business’s relationship to operations and its employees’ relationship to work by delivering software that gives executives real-time visibility into operations and empowers employees by engaging their intelligence and making work happier.

Our Culture

Happiness Culture

People often ask about our company name. Time and again, we hear from our customers that our product makes them “Happy.” Why? Because we transform operational processes, typically conducted with paper forms or in legacy software systems that disregard user experience — and we replace these archaic processes with mobile software that even a technophobe delights in. And our solution offers much more in operations management, transparency and business intelligence that everyone, at every level of the organization, is impacted positively.

And so we take the “Happy” in “HappyCo” seriously, and that brand value permeates every decision we make, every feature we build, every partner we sign. We imbue that quality into our daily culture and our customer and investor relationships, and we gauge our success not only by revenue, but also by that filter. Our vision is a world where everyone can meet their full potential at work, not hampered by workflows that reduce creative energy to redundant tasks, but enable us to thrive at work because we add real value.

Product Planning

One of the most exciting aspects of working in technology is driving product development. Understanding market needs and creating solutions and new features to meet those needs requires brilliance, creativity and perseverance. In Silicon Valley, product planning typically remains the sole domain of engineers and product managers, the process enveloped in secrecy — sales, marketing and customer support usually sit on the sidelines.

We do things differently here. We firmly believe in engaging multi-stakeholder perspectives. We enlist representatives from each business unit across the company in product planning, and we elicit customer feedback very early in the process to ensure what we’re building is what our customers actually need.

Locations

Downtown San Francisco

San Francisco

HappyCo headquarters is located in San Francisco in the historical building at 1000 Van Ness Avenue that currently houses the AMC Theater and Studio Mix gym. Our surrounding neighborhood of Little Saigon delights the palate with lots of inexpensive Asian street food options to more standard fare like deli sandwiches, salads and burgers. We have both a Jane coffee and Philz Coffee nearby. Our location is easily accessible from the Civic Center Bart and several Golden Gate transit bus lines. The San Francisco office houses engineering, marketing, sales and customer success.

Downtown Adelaide

Adelaide

HappyCo in Australia is located in Adelaide, South Australia in the heart of the CBD on Pirie Street. The Aurora Building is a modern “green” building and has unique and spectacular sky deck/rooftop recreational and entertaining area, a lap pool, spa, sauna/steam room and gymnasium. Adelaide has some of the best food in the world, including the one-of-a-kind Central Markets, known for the freshest, most diverse produce. South Australia as a region produces world renowned wines including Penfolds, Jacob’s Creek and Yalumba. The Adelaide office houses engineering, customer success and sales.

Team Fitness

As the new adage goes, a work team that works out together stays in sync, collaborative and fit! Lucky for us, we share our building with one of the best gyms in San Francisco, Studio Mix. It offers non-stop classes from early morning to late at night, featuring every class you can imagine. As a HappyCo employee, you have full access to classes as well as to its sauna and steam room — ah, relax!

And every week, the company offers a group crossfit workout with a personal trainer. We like to bond over lunges, pull-ups and pilates matt crunches, and it’s a good reminder that HappyCo values health and exercise, so we put it right in the middle of the work day to remind employees of our “core” values.
