NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - Software-based bookkeeping company Pilot.com announced plans to locate 450 jobs and a new account management headquarters in Nashville.
The software-based bookkeeping company plans to create more than 450 new jobs in Davidson County over the next five years.
“It is great news that yet another company is choosing Nashville as the location for one of its headquarters,” Gov. Bill Lee said in a news release. “Tennessee continues to attract companies like Pilot.com because of our business-friendly environment and strong workforce. I want to thank Pilot.com for investing in Nashville and for creating more than 450 jobs here.”
Pilot.com will be located in Nashville’s Wedgewood-Houston neighborhood. The new office will house its finance operations and customer support teams. The company also plans on growing its base of software engineers at the facility.
"Nashville was always at the top of our list of candidate locations for a second office. The city has great schools, attracts incredible, diverse talent, and is making smart investments to support its burgeoning startup scene,” said Pilot.com founder Jessica McKeller in a news release. “I also know first-hand that it's a great place to live and raise a family.”
Pilot.com, Inc., was founded in 2017 in San Francisco. The company provides a bookkeeping solution for startups and small businesses. According to a news release, the company specializes in freeing up founders and CEOs of companies from the process of keeping their company’s books by providing software-based bookkeeping and customer support services to its customers.

Pilot.com’s decision to bring in more than 450 jobs in our city is a testament to our business-friendly environment and high quality of life,” said Nashville Mayor David Briley in a news release. “Today also highlights Nashville’s 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.”
