Indeed adding hundreds of new jobs in Connecticut
Governor Dannel P. Malloy and executives from Indeed announced that the internet company has plans to significantly increase its presence in Connecticut by investing $26.5 million to expand its Stamford offices, where its workforce already exceeds 700 employees. The expansion project will see the creation of as many as 500 new jobs in the coming years, bringing the company’s Connecticut job presence to over 1,200 employees.
“This is a significant win for Connecticut’s economy and a testament to the quality of our workforce,” Governor Malloy said. “Indeed is an innovative, high-tech company that has been steadily growing services and adding hundreds of new, good-paying jobs, going from a handful of employees over a decade ago to 700 working in Stamford today. The company is now poised to significantly expand again, and we welcome the company’s capital investment in our state and the growth of hundreds of high-quality jobs that will follow.”
Indeed is the largest job site in the world, connecting job seekers to millions of employment listings in over 60 countries and 28 languages. The website is utilized across the world by more than 200 million people each month, conducting any number of employment-related activities, including searching for jobs, posting resumes, and researching companies. The job site’s “pay per performance” model has encouraged millions of employers to use Indeed to help with their hiring needs.
“From our start in small offices in Stamford and Austin to our current position as the global leader in job search with over 5,000 employees worldwide, we have always had the mission of helping people get jobs,” Dave O’Neill, Indeed’s Chief Financial Officer, said. “We have found a great talent pool in the State of Connecticut to help us achieve that mission, and we’re pleased to be continuing this successful partnership. Our Stamford employees are the face of the company to hundreds of thousands of our customers, and helped lay the groundwork for our global expansion. It is a huge advantage for us to have access to a well-educated, tech-savvy employee population that is attracted by the high quality of life in the area.”
