What is the application process like?
You can apply for a position at Pipedrive through our jobs page or a job portal if that's where you found our posting. We first ask you to send us your CV and a cover letter. In most cases we also ask some additional questions that take a couple minutes to answer.
We always try to get back to you as soon as possible, but depending on the number of applicants, it can sometimes take a bit longer before you get a response.
Once we respond, we usually warn our applicants that our interview process is very thorough. We want to be sure that you really get to know the company and the people you'll be working with, and vice versa. This way, we make sure we find the best possible fit, and that we are the right match for you, too. The length of the process varies from role to role, and can take anywhere between a couple of weeks to a month.
As a first step, we arrange either an onsite interview or a Skype call, depending on where you're based. The first chat might be just with the recruiter or both the recruiter and the hiring manager. After the inital conversation, you'll be asked to do a test task. If successful, you'll be meeting with the potential future team and given a chance to go over your assignment. Every candidate will also meet the head of the department they aim to join. And for the final step, you'll have an interview with one of our co-founders. Please note that depending on the role, these steps and the exact number of interviews may vary slightly.
If you have managed to make it to the very end, it probably means that we like you a lot and are ready to make you an offer to join Pipedrive!

What is the working language at Pipedrive?
What are Pipedrive's values?
We believe that our values unite us, which is why we base our day to day interactions on the following principles:
1. Internal Drive
You really love the work you do. You don’t just say it, you get real fuel from doing it. You don't need coworkers or leaders to motivate you, and your motivation comes from a deep emotional connection to your work. You spend, but you also gain, energy while working. You refuel yourself by working on a task and seeing things come together.
2. Reach For Greatness
You exceed your own limits to explore what is possible, and venture into unknown territories. You’re not afraid to do things for the first time or things that others haven’t done before. Instead, knowing you could fail, you still dare to reach for greatness, and end up setting new standards for everyone. It's okay to fail, but it's not okay not to try.
3. No Excuses
When you hit an obstacle, you ask first what you can do to overcome it, instead of blaming others or the situation. You can’t stand being a victim to circumstances, instead you come up with options and execute the ones you believe will solve the problem.
4. Team First
Great things are achieved by teams and you accept that your team is collectively smarter than you. You know that you’re good but personal glory without team success leaves you dissatisfied. In fact, you actively reject personal recognition in favor of team recognition. You make sure that your teammates have what they need to contribute to team success.
You are humble, and readily admit that you're not good at everything all the time. You don't bluntly apply approaches simply because they've worked for you before. You're thirsty for knowledge and seek advice without any concern for how people will perceive you. You look at feedback from others as input you can use to get better.
6. Not Ruining Other People's Days
In spite of your needs or frustrations at any given moment, there are no excuses for ruining someone's day. You love good days, and you want others to feel the same. That's why you don't let yourself or anybody else drag a teammate down. You'd rather uplift people around you by being authentic, weird and all.
What company events do you host?
We organize plenty of cool events starting with an extensive onboarding program when you join. For newcomers there's also a two-day workshop we call Bootcamp, which takes place a few times a year and brings all new employees that have joined in between together.
Every summer, all Pipedrivers come together for what we call a Summer Garage. This event is a chance for all our employees to get to know eachother a bit better through loads of team building activities. Last but not least, the final event of the year tends to be in December: our annual Christmas party.
On top of these great workshops and parties, there are often other miscellaneous company-wide events organised to celebrate important milestones such as moving to a new office or other special occasions.
What benefits Pipedrive offers to its employees?
Employee benefits will vary depending on the location. Our aim is to make sure that everybody, regardless of where they are, has the possibility to be in a great work environment, stay healthy, and get a fair pay for their work. You can ask your recruiter for more specific information during the interview.
If I want to go on a conference abroad, will Pipedrive finance it?
Every team has a budget that can be used for educational purposes. Pipedrivers often go to international conferences regardless of location to promote learning and growth in their specialization.
How does career management work at Pipedrive?
As we continue to grow, we offer quite a lot of internal opportunities to Pipedrivers only. It is possible to grow within your department as well as change departments. The main thing for us is that person is working in a role that they're really passionate about and enjoy doing. We invest a lot of time into educating our people, even offering a lengthy 2 week onboarding training just to introduce you to our product.
Can I apply if I'm living in another country and need visa support? Do you sponsor visas or help with the paperwork?
We are a global company and accept applications from all over the world. Visa support depends on the role and its location. Please mention it in your application should you require visa sponsoring so that we could handle your situation in the best possible way.
Can I work remotely?
We believe that a team thrives when its people work together and next to each-other in order to achieve that unique synergy. Therefore, we prefer Pipedrivers to work from the office as much as possible, but at the same time, we are very flexible towards occasional remote work. We do not, however, offer 100% remote jobs.
Are you open to working with agencies?
All our Talent Hunters work very hard to find the best candidates for our open positions. In fact, we have an internal global HR team consistently working on all our recruitment needs.
Sometimes we might need some help, but only in extremely rare situations. In such cases we prefer to get in touch with you, rather than vice versa.
Are there any work shadowing opportunities?
We do offer work shadowing from time to time. Usually work shadowers find us through specific projects or via school recommendations.
