Title:Payroll Specialist
Location:Pleasanton, CA

We call ourselves Blumers. We work on really exciting stuff together, we eat and play together, and we help each other out (who woulda thought?!).

With 25 years in the business and a full rebranding and renaming of our company in September 2018, think of Blume Global as not your typical start-up. Think up-start.

The secret sauce? Our people.

We’ve got leaders—both women and men—with diverse backgrounds, college interns and lots of talented, smart people in between. We’re a resourceful and scrappy bunch, currently at around 200 employees in 4 offices in the Bay Area, Boston, Chicago, and Hong Kong. And we have a well-established and growing customer and partnership base across the supply chain industry.

Some highlights of working at Blume Global are:

  • Growth – professional development, company, and industry
  • Fun – free lunch Fridays, happy hours, office surprises and more
  • Humility – everyone leaves their egos at home
  • Innovation – We’re working on some really cool stuff for the supply chain, whether it’s AI, machine learning, IoT or blockchain.
