PandaDoc partners with Greater St. Petersburg Area Economic Development Corporation to boost tech economy in the peninsula
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – November 1, 2017 — PandaDoc, developers of the award-winning PandaDoc document automation platform, today announced the opening of their East Coast headquarters in St. Petersburg, Florida. The PandaDoc offices are located within Station House, a regional epicenter for business, co-work, and entrepreneurship, located on the 3rd Floor at 260 1st Ave S, in St. Petersburg. A grand opening celebration will take place on Thursday, November 16 at 4:00 p.m.
“We are excited to announce that our East Coast headquarters is in St. Petersburg, Florida,” said Jared Fuller, VP of Sales at PandaDoc. “We considered many cities, but after meeting with the St. Petersburg Area Economic Development Corporation, Station House and members of the greater St. Petersburg downtown community, the decision to come to Florida was an easy one – the community is experiencing explosive growth.”
PandaDoc recently secured a $15 million Series B round of funding and chose St. Petersburg because of its reasonable cost of living, beautiful environment and ability to attract young talent. Fuller added, “St. Pete had the right amount of weird for us, it felt much closer to a young San Francisco than most Eastern cities.”
PandaDoc currently has 15 employees in St. Petersburg and plans to double that number in 2018. PandaDoc also has offices in San Francisco, California, and Minsk, Belarus. St. Petersburg will be the company’s sales and customer service center, while its base of operations will remain in San Francisco and product development will remain in Minsk. PandaDoc is actively recruiting for sales, service, operations and support positions in St. Petersburg, a list of current openings can be found here.
“The City of St. Petersburg welcomes PandaDoc with open arms,” said St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman. “PandaDoc’s choosing us for their East Coast headquarters is more proof our Grow Smarter strategy is working. Relocating to St. Petersburg means harnessing our creative, competitive workforce for better productivity and financial results.”
“We are thrilled that PandaDoc now calls St. Petersburg home,” stated J.P. DuBuque, President, Greater St. Petersburg Area Economic Development Corporation. “Our vibrant city is the perfect place for organizations that want to offer their staff a beautiful, warm, cost-effective place to work and play. We look forward to a bright future with PandaDoc.”
“We are very proud to call PandaDoc family,” stated Steve Gianfilippo, of Gianco Companies and Station House. “Station House is the perfect workspace for tech companies like PandaDoc. We offer a tech-friendly environment, collaborative workspace, events; a true Live, Work, Play lifestyle. So many of our Peers in the community made it possible for PandaDoc to establish a platform for future growth in the region. We are honored that we could assist and grateful that PandaDoc chose us. The talent they have and will recruit is to me the icing on the cake.”
