ChangeEngine, a San Francisco, CA-based Internal Marketing & People Design Platform that enables companies to deploy best-in-class programs without requiring employees to log in to separate systems, raised $10m in Series A funding.

It enables companies to attract & retain talent, increase the adoption of key employee initiatives, and save hundreds of hours via internal communications automation. The company boasts a suite of integrations embedded across a wide range of systems of record. ChangeEngine was and is headquartered in San Francisco, CA with offices in London and LatAm.

By treating employees like internal customers, ChangeEngine syncs with employee data, creates persona segments for targeted communication, aligns visual content with brand identity, and offers a suite of AI creator tools alongside a curated template library for launching workplace initiatives effectively. 

The company intends to use the funds to expand its operations by recruiting talent across all departments, expand the development efforts for platform innovation, including people analytics, manager insights, enhanced AI workflows, employee recognition, and self-signup tools designed to create employee experiences without needing to purchase multiple-point solutions.
