Software engineers, tech support and administrative professionals: Tempe companies are hiring right now and need your skills.
ZipRecruiter and Endurance International Group announced their expansions and hiring plans for 2017. At least 900 jobs will be available. The Tempe-based companies are doubling in size both in terms of staff and real estate.
“The investments by global companies like Endurance International and ZipRecruiter in Tempe mean more quality jobs for our City,” Tempe Mayor Mark Mitchell said. “This is also a validation of our longstanding philosophy that by creating a destination where people want to live and play, we also create a destination where businesses want to locate.”
More than 2,000 tech jobs have posted or will open in Tempe in the next few months at companies including these companies and others like Willis Towers Watson and Entertainment Partners. Companies report that Tempe’s educated, diverse workforce, the access to transportations like light rail, bike paths and bus system, along with a lifestyle that offers fun activities at Tempe Town Lake and Mill Avenue, make Tempe a great place for growing a business.
“Our experience in Tempe has been overwhelmingly positive,” ZipRecruiter CEO Ian Siegel said. “The impressive pool of talent has allowed us to hit our hiring goals here well ahead of schedule, and the active lifestyle and amenities around Tempe Town Lake are a great fit for us culturally.”
Both ZipRecruiter and Endurance International are located within a mile of Tempe Town Lake, where already more than 40,000 people work.
