San Francisco-based sales account engagement platform 6sense announced Tuesday that it raised $125 million in a Series D funding round led by D1 Capital Partners. The fresh financing cements the company’s unicorn status with a valuation of $2.1 billion.

The new valuation number is a huge jump for 6sense. Early last year, the company brought in $40 million via its Series C and, at the time, it was valued at a mere $300 million.

6sense aims to enable revenue teams to better engage with their buyers through personalized campaigns, outreach and content experiences.

Typically, the data that these teams use in order to stay up to date on customer accounts lives in separate corners of the internet. In an effort to help prioritize sales outreach efforts, the 6sense platform brings all of that data together. As a result, the platform can identify key contacts, find the best time to reach out and build out targeted buyer lists for its clients.

“There is an enormous opportunity to redesign the way B2B companies go to market. We believe we have the platform, data, team, and investment partners to be the foundation for B2B revenue technology,” Jason Zintak, CEO of 6sense, said in a statement.

The company will use the additional capital to continue investing in the expansion of its platform’s predictive capabilities. 6sense also plans to invest in its team as it continues to scale.

The company is now hiring for dozens of roles at its San Francisco headquarters. Available positions span the company’s customer success, product, design, sales and data teams. A large number of remote roles are also up for grabs.

6sense has raised $226 million in venture capital financing to date, according to Crunchbase.

Additional investors Sapphire Ventures, Tiger Global and Insight Partners participated in the round.
