Founded in 2007 by David Cummings and Adam Blitzer, Pardot has gone from a bootstrapped startup to a leading B2B marketing automation provider and a part of salesforce.com. Located in Atlanta, Georgia, Pardot has a growing client base ranging from small and mid-sized businesses to divisions of large enterprise organizations. Additional Pardot team members are scattered across the globe in San Francisco, Austin, Los Angeles, Chicago, Seattle, London and Australia.

Pardot offers a software-as-a-service marketing automation application that allows marketing and sales departments to create, deploy, and manage online marketing campaigns that increase revenue and maximize efficiency. Pardot features certified CRM integrations with salesforce.com, NetSuite, Microsoft Dynamics CRM, and SugarCRM, empowering marketers with lead nurturing, lead scoring, and ROI reporting to generate and qualify sales leads, shorten sales cycles, and demonstrate marketing accountability.

Pardot was recently named the #1 Small Business to Work for in Atlanta, shortly afterward earning the 172nd spot on the Inc. 500 Fastest-Growing Companies list.

Pardot + salesforce.com

In October of 2012, Pardot was acquired by ExactTarget, a leading global provider of email marketing and cross-channel interactive marketing software-as-a-service solutions. The following July, ExactTarget and Pardot became a part of SaaS pioneer salesforce.com. Together Pardot and salesforce.com will empower every rep to act in the moment of engagement, and every marketer to drive greater results from campaigns.

With a passion for innovation and a strong company culture strikingly similar to Pardot’s, salesforce.com is the perfect partner to help provide Pardot clients with the tools and support they need to be successful.

The Pardot Culture

At Pardot, we take pride in our company culture (not to mention our ping pong skills). While a fully-stocked fridge, a foosball table, and a flexible telecommute policy may seem like they don’t belong at the top of any company’s priority list, we firmly believe that investing in our employees is the best way to foster a productive, results-oriented work environment. The Pardot hiring process focuses just as intently on culture as it does on skills, meaning that Pardot employees all share the same positive, self-starting, and supportive attitudes. By ensuring that each new employee is not just talented but a team player, Pardot is able to maintain a cooperative and amenable work environment that translates into a better customer service experience for clients.
