This startup will replace your bookkeeper

Tax season has begun! Well, almost.

We can hear you groaning, but it doesn't have to be that way — especially if you run a startup.

Pilot ($18.3M raised) is a bookkeeping company that focuses exclusively on startups and sets itself apart from traditional firms by using — you guessed it — software.

“It has saved me from a ton of manual bookkeeping work I was doing using overpriced, clunky software. Now I don’t worry about anything anymore. They literally do everything for me.” - Winnie CEO Sara Mauskopf

Besides the fact that your bookkeeper is probably still doing your books today in the exact same way since 1995 💾, here's how Pilot is shaking things up:

💯 Their team of bookkeepers (based in SF) are assisted by engineers that automate the most error-prone parts of bookkeeping, so your books are always incredibly accurate.

👥 They really think the customer is always right. Basically, they’re what you’d get if Gusto or Stripe built a bookkeeping firm.

💸 Pilot is built by startup founders for startup founders (they previously sold Ksplice to Oracle back in 2011 and Zulip to Dropbox in 2014).

AND hundred of startups — including 50+ Y Combinator alumni — are already using Pilot for bookkeeping.

Pro tip: They're running a special discount for the Product Hunt community right now, and the first 100 of you to sign up will get 20 percent off of Pilot Core for six months.
