INDIANAPOLIS -

Indianapolis-based Viral Launch has announced $2.2 million expansion plans. The marketing technology company, which currently employs more than 20, says it could add up to 250 jobs by 2021. Viral Launch plans to move fast and hire 30 workers by the end of this year and double its current office space in downtown Indy by early 2018. During a March interview with Inside INdiana Business Television, Chief Executive Officer Casey Gauss discussed his path to co-founding the company, which includes dropping out of college.

The company says rapid growth is driving the decision. It reports a 250 percent increase in revenue from 2015 to 2016 and revenue that has nearly doubled since the beginning of the year. The new jobs, Viral Launch says, are expected on average to pay nearly 35 percent higher than the average wage in the state for currently-open positions including software developer, account manager, data scientist, content writer and executive assistant.

Gauss says "choosing downtown Indianapolis as Viral Launch's headquarters has proven to be a great decision for our team. We are at the heart of a quickly-growing tech scene and we're excited to expand and attract the best creative and tech talent Indy has to offer!"

Viral Launch is currently hiring software developers and account managers, as well as a data scientist, content writer and an executive assistant. These positions are expected to pay an average wage nearly 35 percent higher than the state average wage. Interested applicants may apply online.

The three-year-old company provides software, creative and consulting services for entrepreneurs selling on Amazon.com and has been offered more than $2.5 million in conditional tax credits and training grants from the Indiana Economic Development Corp.
