ST. PETERSBURG — Customer relationship management tech company Pipedrive said Friday it has opened its second office in the United States in downtown St. Petersburg.

Pipedrive’s platform is a sales management tool designed to help small sales teams manage lengthy or complex sales processes. Founded in 2010, Pipedrive has raised $90 million in funding and has 500-plus employees worldwide working with more than 90,000 companies.

“St. Petersburg is a fast-growing, highly skilled community of tech talent,” Pipedrive chief revenue officer Jeff Paradise said in an announcement released through the St. Petersburg Area Economic Development Corp. “Plus, it is a vibrant, high-growth business community evidenced by it being the second leading community in job growth in the state. We are confident that this market is an excellent match for Pipedrive in our continued employee growth to further bolster support for our customers.”

The St. Petersburg office will be staffed with customer support employees and will be at 490 First Ave. S, the downtown office building that’s home to the Tampa Bay Times, Bank OZK, the Penny Hoarder and the commercial aviation solutions unit of L3 Technologies, one of the nation’s largest government contractors.
