Our Story 

Thanks to a team of passionate and innovative thinking serial entrepreneurs, Factorial was founded in  Barcelona in 2016. What started out as a small project, has now become one of the top HR software solutions to help companies manage their employees while eliminating the need to spend hours upon hours on time-consuming tasks. Jordi Romero, Bernat Farrero, and Pau Ramón, the founders of Factorial, wanted to make managing HR processes simple. They wanted to automate HR tasks so that managers could have more time to focus on their employees and commit to making better business decisions. Since their humble beginnings, Factorial has continued to grow and expand and now offers its software solution in over 40 countries worldwide. The recent successful funding round of 2020, which saw a 15 Million Euro investment thanks to CRV, shows that Factorial is not only surviving well but thriving. Moving forward, Factorial continues to grow internationally, bringing HR solutions to the HR problems of human resources professionals. Their desire to truly understand the needs of human resources is one of the keys to their success.
