Eliminating time-consuming tasks means people get to do more of what they love. It’s an inspiring, high stakes challenge that motivates us, and this common passion bonds UiPath employees globally. We all strive every day to be better and to accelerate human achievement. 
We make software robots, so people don’t have to be robots. Would you like to be part of this journey?

Our Fiscal Year 2021 priorities include implementing SOX-readiness, UiPath’s financial integrity, support ethics and anti-corruption initiatives, driving success through smart risk management and create a next-gen high performing internal audit team which utilizes the use of automation.
