Today Zuora was named to The SaaS 1000 – a list of the top SaaS companies according to employee size growth. The rankings use an algorithm that tracks a SaaS company’s 6 month employee size growth and overall employee size to come up with the SaaS 1000 ranking. The list includes the largest SaaS companies to smaller startups and is updated quarterly.
Tom Blue, the SaaS 1000 Founder said, “This new list of SaaS companies identifies the fastest growing SaaS companies in the world. Any company that is on this list should be proud of what they have achieved.“
