InDinero, based in San Francisco, moved its Portland outpost to a bigger office downtown.

The company provides accounting and back-office help to small businesses and entrepreneurs. It’s hired 60 people since opening its Portland outpost a year ago and said it plans to double that number over the next 18 months. InDinero employs 200 people overall, with additional employees in California and the Philippines.

“Really what’s driving our growth is our revenue,” said Sarah Olbekson, InDinero’s “director of talent.” She said the company is expanding its product offerings and improving its marketing.

The new Portland offices occupy 12,000 square feet near Providence Park, 2.5 times InDinero’s prior location near O’Bryant Square.
