Pilot.com, a bookkeeping software company founded in San Francisco, will open a new account-management headquarters in Nashville's Wedgewood-Houston neighborhood, according to a June 25 announcement from the Tennessee Department of Economic & Community Development.
This will be the second location for the company, and it is expected to be home to its finance operations and customer service employees. The company expects to create more than 450 new jobs in the Nashville area over the next five years, according to the announcement.
“Nashville was always at the top of our list of candidate locations for a second office," Pilot.com founder Jessica McKellar said in a statement. "The city has great schools, attracts incredible, diverse talent, and is making smart investments to support its burgeoning startup scene. I also know first-hand that it’s a great place to live and raise a family.”
An exact location for the new headquarters has not yet been announced. Nashville Mayor David Briley said the move is a testament to the city's business-friendly environment as well as its growing tech sector.
"Our city is becoming increasingly well-positioned for the economy of the future, and I am committed to making sure our workforce is ready to meet that challenge," Briley said in a statement.
