She comments on her decision to join BetterCloud, "Coming from large corporations, like Global Payments, I've experienced firsthand both the challenges and opportunities behind SaaS adoption,". She continues, "When I heard about BetterCloud, I immediately understood they were solving a major problem every company is struggling with, but lack the tools and know-how to handle effectively. Everything from the impressive product and team of passionate visionary leaders made joining BetterCloud an easy choice. I can't wait to roll up my sleeves and build on the successes to date."

BetterCloud was founded in 2011 to solve the challenges of monitoring the continuous activity conducted in a SaaS environment. Today, the company is considered to be the first SaaS operations management platform. Its suite of solutions empower IT teams to define, remediate, and enforce management and security policies for SaaS applications.

The company is backed by some of today’s leading software investors including Bain Capital Ventures, Accel, and Flybridge Capital. With adequate financing under its belt, BetterCloud has been able to grow quickly over the years. It currently serves over 2,500 customers in 60+ countries. The company is headquartered in New York City with an engineering office in Atlanta, GA.

Discussing both the need for their solutions and their new CTO, CEO David Politis states, "Gaining control of your SaaS stack is no longer an option — it's an imperative,". He adds, "We're currently processing 100 million transactions a day and cumulatively crossed a total of 3 billion recently — proof that SaaS is growing exponentially. At that point we knew we needed to find a CTO that understood the challenges of deploying SaaS at scale — and we found her. Andra not only has the experience building and leading product teams at Fortune 500 companies, but she's also a perfect cultural fit for our growing business. We welcome her with open arms and can't wait for her to get started."
