Daniel Dines is the founder and CEO of UiPath, the fastest growing and leading provider of Robotic Process Automation (RPA) software. Dines started UiPath in 2005 with the goal of building a technology that could help humans reduce the time and stress that come from menial, administrative business tasks.
With a vision to deliver A Robot for Every Person, Dines is committed to ushering in the ‘automation first’ era; an era delivering both substantial productivity gains and also higher employee satisfaction and engagement to businesses of all sizes. Dines is focused on helping the workforce adapt to this change through a global commitment to democratize RPA, offering free training, software, and programs to help skill, reskill, and upskill the workforce of the future.
Since incorporating UiPath in 2015, and moving its headquarters to New York in 2017, Dines has led the company through substantial growth becoming the world’s fastest-growing enterprise software company in history. He has attracted top-tier venture capital firms and public institutional investors who most recently valued UiPath at $7 Billion. In September 2019, Dines was featured as Boss of the Bots on the cover of Forbes magazine.
Dines began his engineering career at Microsoft where he designed and developed the SQL Server Agent. Still a hacker at heart, he is active in driving the company’s RPA platform and supporting over 500,000 developers who are building automation on the UiPath platform.
