In winter 2014, after ~3 years working in the support dept. at DocuSign, I felt so fortunate to be a part of the company that I decided to write a song. Start With An 'E' became the first of two tribute songs and celebrates our product, purpose, and team of talented, driven employees.

I love the original version (prod. by J Lee Mezus) but I always felt I didn't perform on the track with the energy I originally intended. Therefore, I decided to revisit the song with the help of producer and engineer, Jay Battle. This, just as the original features the vocals of my multi-talented friend, Paradame.

lyrics

[Keith Krach (CEO) #1]
What can be automated. What can be digital,
Will be automated. Will be digital.
We're changing the world.

[Verse #1]
Horizontal or vertical,
Even outer perimeter industries
See the benefit of eSignatures

We’re here to help
Convert paper nonsense
Into a seamless, automated process

Within the cloud, the overhead is costless
That’s how we keep customers
“SaaS-y” and astonished

A product doesn’t sell itself
It’s a team effort, coalesced,
And mathematically concocted

The AE’s and AM’s stay trenched
While the CSA’s and TCSM’s
Become customers' best friends

When it comes to newborn use cases,
OSC’s provide guidance beyond basics

The SE’s demo during pre-sales with prestige
While Pro Serv post-sells added expertise

Washing misconceptions away with SOAP
Giving REST options makes developers our kinfolk

With global adoption as the end result,
It’s a wholesome effort and we defend our own

Putting pedal to the metal,
Driving advocates
We’re enveloped in this realm
Of Digital Transaction Management

[Chorus #1]
Put your hands up!
Drop your pen now!
You can stand up!
Or you can sit down!

You could be on the beach,
On the couch or in your office chair

Anywhere! As long as you can
"Sign Here” Now!

Now, put your fist up!
Then extend your finger
We prefer the index
But any digit’ll be considered

Now let the other four stay down
As long as you can click it
You can “Sign Here” Now!

[Keith Krach (CEO) #2]
We believe... at DocuSign.
That by the end of this decade
All successful enterprises will be fully digital.

[Verse #2]
Product Management
Keeps us on our road-
Mapping each feature

Making sure
We’re at a “reel-istic” speed
Of this motion picture

Our Marketing Team
Is no joke either
Their flying carpet-like
SEO schemes are so secret

Our Security Team has no fear
Together with Legal
To keep an eben flow
And a close ear to the ground

Instead of waiting for that sound
Of the gavel, they travel
To squash any doubt

HR and Finance
Are in a constant line-dance
Ensuring we pick
The right candidates with candidness

Making DocuSign
The *best* transport
More capable than the payload
Of your back-packed, JanSport

So, put your hands up!
Cause we’re hands-down, magic
Cloud-bound on the outbounds of this planet

Sign Here with your iPhone or tablet
This is critical to
Digital Transaction Management

[Chorus #2]
Put your hands up!
Drop your pen now!
You can stand up!
Or you can sit down!

You could be underwater,
Snorkeling in your scuba gear

Anywhere!
As long as you
Can "Sign Here” Now!

Now, put your fist up!
Then extend your finger
We prefer the index
But any digit’ll be considered!

Now let the other four
Stay down
As long as you can click it
You can “Sign Here” Now!

[Keith Krach (CEO) #3]
Do business digitally.
Anywhere, anytime, anything, on any device.
And that is exactly the mission of DocuSign.

[Verse #3]
Coding the complexity of
Product’s end theory
Constitutes the accomplishments
Of Engineering

They traverse conduits
And construct with confluence
Letting no archetypes
Become an influence

Taking art to flight
With dot-com improvements
Allowing you to navigate
And find content with ease

Our dot-net team
Builds out our platform
Filling customer needs
With each feature released

QA is the front line of defense
Fighting against
The induction of defects
And unexpected events

It goes, test, test every workflow
Our Release Team is so very careful

With each and every build,
Even though weary,
They’re full-y engaged
Like a soon-to-be married couple

With passion under pressure
They’re tactful and adamant
And this is pivotal to
Digital Transaction Management

[Chorus #3]
Put your hands up!
Drop your pen now!
You can stand up!
Or you can sit down!

You could be stuck in traffic,
Or a thousand feet in the air

Anywhere! As long as you can
"Sign Here” Now!

Now, put your fist up!
Then extend your finger
We prefer the index
But any digit’ll be considered!

Now let the other four stay down
As long as you can click it,
You can “Sign Here” Now!

[Keith Krach (CEO) #4]
This DocuSign community...
This amazing DocuSign Team...
Not only are you able to keep your customers,
You're able to delight them...

[Verse #4]
When I started in Tier II,
Support was at its genesis
Knowledge was stored
In our memories like elephants

Teamwork was strong
But it soon became evident
We lacked the elements
For future development

Now we have the tools,
Analytics and metrics,
CSAT specs and overtime benefits

Visibility’s at an all-time high
We’ve hired like-wised minds
And built long-lasting friendships

Through the efforts of
Of IT and Facilities
We now have the weaponry
Of elite soldiers

We’re a culture of fun
Professional and noticed
As a profit center now,
Bent on customer focus

It goes ONE, TWO,
All the way to Tier THREE
From Cebu to Seattle
And now globally

Content, Quality, Community,
Plus graduate degrees
From Doc-University

It goes, ONE for our faculty,
TWO for their tackling of complex issues
Why don’t YOU do the math with me?

THREE for the passion
We bleed at full capacity,
FOUR for the Tier… (there’s a fourth?)
Oh yeah, that is me!

Clap your hands now!
Cause we’re hands-down magic
Cloud-bound
On the outbounds of this planet!

Heroic efforts are astounding,
Established, and integral to
Digital Transaction Management

[Keith Krach (CEO) #5]
The passion... The courage...
We're changing the world.
It's creating a new paradigm.

[Final Chorus w/ Paradame x2]
Whether Enterprise,
Corporate, Web, or SMB
This team is hard to beat

Our competitors can’t stay ahead of us
When it comes to our market reach

Other SaaS peddlers'
Solutions will never work
As hard as we

We’re destined to make
Every worldwide signature
Start with an “E”
