Pipedrive is the first CRM platform made for salespeople, by salespeople.
In 2010, Pipedrive’s co-founders set out to build a customer relationship management (CRM) tool that helps users visualize their sales processes and get more done. They knew from experience that in sales, as in life, you can’t control your results but you can control your actions. So, they created Pipedrive around activity-based selling, a proven approach that’s all about scheduling, completing and tracking activities.
Visual pipelines are another example of the sales wisdom they built into Pipedrive, which let you see exactly where each deal stands and have loads of smart and easy-to-use features.
In 2020, Vista Equity Partners, a leading global investment firm that invests exclusively in enterprise software, data and technology-enabled businesses, made a majority investment in Pipedrive.

We helped Pipedrive to hire engineers in Estonia and Portugal, and collaborated with both recruiters and hiring managers. Both Tallinn and Lisbon markets are quite limited and competitive in terms of engineering talent, especially when we were looking for someone with startup experience. That made us invent new approaches and to think outside of the box. For example, in Lisbon we expanded our search to the areas within 1-2 h of the commute to the office to make sure the candidates will be there for the team gatherings. We also looked for the candidates in other cities willing to move to Lisbon.
