Pipedrive Celebrates Its 700th Employee by Planting Trees in the Amazon
New York - 16 December 2020 - Pipedrive, the leading CRM for sales and marketing teams, announced this week that the company has welcomed its 700th employee to the company. Pipedrive has ambitious plans for 2021, with 65 active vacancies and recruitment volumes to increase next year.
“As a global company, recruiting is quite challenging at the moment due to travel restrictions. We are currently trying to find suitable candidates from local markets who will help us to implement Pipedrive’s ambitious plans in the coming years. The local talent is scarce, especially in the tech areas, and all companies compete for the best candidates,” said Oksana Võsa, head of HR, Pipedrive.
Pipedrive, which reached 'unicorn' status in the fall after receiving a majority investment from Vista Equity Partners, has 65 open positions for technical staff, as well as marketing, sales, and HR specialists in its ten offices worldwide. Since September, Pipedrive has recruited 60 employees.
More than 50 nationalities are represented by the company's 700 employees, and almost 40% of the employees are women. Developers and engineers account for about 40% of the total staff. The average employee age at Pipedrive is 32 years.
To mark the recruitment of its 700th employee, Pipedrive, in partnership with One Tree Planted, is planting one tree in the Amazon rainforest for each of its 700 employees.
“As the environment is one of Pipedrive's focus areas, we aim to motivate our employees to think more about sustainability issues and to encourage environmentally friendly behavior both inside and outside the office. Let this symbolic planting be a small reminder that everyone can contribute to the sustainable world in a small way," said Võsa.
