Hyland's team

In 1991, a couple of guys from Northeast Ohio (Packy Hyland and Miguel Zubizarreta) started a software company to help businesses manage their information. A scrappy group — many who are still at the company today — toiled away in those early years with too little sleep and a lot of grit.

Our culture today is built on the foundation and work ethic of our founders. Hylanders are hard-working, innovative, customer-first professionals, and we strive to make our organization among the best to work for.
