We believe it takes great people to create a great product. That’s why our team lives our company values, and we hire based on them, too. Since 2010, Pipedrive has been on a mission to support sales and marketing teams with easy-to-use, powerful tools that make everyday work faster and easier. Today, our cloud-based software is trusted by over 100,000 companies and used in 179 countries. We have grown from a five-person team to a truly international company of over 900 people, representing more than 50 nationalities, with ten offices distributed across Europe and the US. In 2020, Pipedrive received a majority investment from Vista Equity Partners, a global investment firm that invests exclusively in enterprise software, data and technology-enabled businesses, making Pipedrive the fifth unicorn from Estonia.Pipedrive implements about 500 deployments to production per week, with more than 300 developers and without a dedicated testing department.Learn more about how we work in tribes, how we deploy, and what we do to “Support Quality Releases while Deploying 50+ Times Per Day.”The Quality Team applies their expertise to help Pipedrivers with quality, testing, and training, among other things.
