Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve been blown away watching our employees pick up work during this unprecedented period. They’re juggling kids, pets and family responsibilities at home to make sure all of our customers receive the same level of support they’ve come to expect from us. Now more than ever, it’s critical that we’re available to help our customers navigate what can be very challenging times. On a positive note, it’s been nice to see some of our customers experience surging usage, due to secondary effects of global events, and our employees have already proven to me that we can keep up with those demands while working remotely. 

It’s become abundantly clear to me that if we’re going to achieve our company’s mission to improve the world’s software experiences, then we need to double down on our investment in Pendo’s most valuable asset—our employees. That’s why I told the Pendo team that we’re going to continue hiring, especially in the area of product innovation, during this period of economic uncertainty. 

Hiring to accelerate out of the turn

Our goal with this new hiring effort is to add more people for product innovation so we’re in a position to hit the ground running when the economy picks up again. We believe people with diverse backgrounds and fresh perspectives help improve our products, which is why we’ll continue to emphasize the need to bring a diverse slate of candidates to hiring managers.  

We’re looking to add almost 30 product and engineering roles. We’re especially looking for senior and staff level software engineering talent, for both back and front end engineering roles.

Investing in the people behind our products

We’re grateful to be able to work remotely and maintain business continuity while our offices are under orders to shelter in place, and we’re grateful that we’re in a strong enough financial position to continue investing in our company’s priorities during difficult times. We’re deeply committed to the 400-plus employees that make up our company today. We’ll need the creative ingenuity of every last one of them to keep up with our goals for 2020.

There are a lot of open questions about how the pandemic will shape the economy in the months to come, but we’re confident that if we continue investing in the best people now, we’ll be in a position to keep the momentum going for years to come.
