Our Challenge

Every day, millions of people use spreadsheets for business-critical processes. However, running these spreadsheet processes is painful. Sharing and collecting spreadsheet data is done manually, too many emails are sent back and forth, keeping track of all changes and file versions is cumbersome and leads to loss of control and transparency.

Our Solution

In short, we are building GitHub for Spreadsheets.

Layer is a cutting-edge web platform which fosters collaboration and increases productivity with the potential to reach millions of users worldwide. By introducing a productivity layer on top of Excel and Google Sheets, we are on a global mission to change how any team in any company works with spreadsheets.

Our team & culture

We think it’s about owning what you do and getting it done. We value outcome over output. We treat each other with respect and are in this together. We back our decision-making with logic and are not afraid of making mistakes.

Our team is our most important asset. We want to empower you to grow in the direction you most desire.
