Web App Development Startup Pendo to Triple Number of Employees in Israel
Pendo is now setting up new offices in central Israel to accommodate around 70 new employees, said Yaron Goldberg, vice president of engineering and manager of Pendo’s Israel site
Web application development startup Pendo.io Inc. intends to triple the number of employees in its Israeli research and development center, Yaron Goldberg, a vice president of engineering and the Israel site manager for Pendo, told Calcalist in a phone interview last week.
Pendo currently has 32 workers in Israel and is looking to employ up to 100 people. The company is now setting up new offices in Herzliya, a town in the Tel Aviv metropolitan area, to accommodate the growing workforce, Goldberg said.
Founded in 2013 in Raleigh, North Carolina by a team of former Google, Cisco Systems, Red Hat Inc., and Rally Software Development Corp. executives, Pendo develops cloud-based user data analysis tools that help companies analyze customer interaction with their online products.

In September, Pendo announced a $50 million funding round led by Palo Alto, California-based Sapphire Ventures, bringing its total funding raised to $106 million.
Pendo first entered Israel in 2017 when it acquired mobile engagement company Insert Mobile Technologies Ltd., co-founded by Goldberg.
