A California-based tech company is planning to add a new location in central Indiana. Celigo Inc., which bills itself as an Integration Platform-as-a-Service provider, says it will invest nearly $1.2 million to open its third North American office in Indianapolis and create up to 150 jobs by the end of 2024. The company says its platform allows companies to connect their applications and better automate their business.
The new office in Indianapolis will house portions of Celigo’s implementation, support, product, engineering, customer success, sales and marketing operations. The Indiana Economic Development Corp. says the company is still evaluating locations in the Indianapolis area to establish the office.
Celigo currently employs more than 300 people worldwide, including 17 Hoosiers working remotely. The company says it is currently hiring for positions in every department.
“During this critical time for digital transformation, hundreds of new customers have been coming to Celigo to automate business processes across the enterprise,” Jan Arendtsz, founder and chief executive officer of Celigo, said in a news release. “We’re looking to significantly increase headcount in 2021 and build a world-class team, and Indianapolis has proven to be a great place to find the top-notch talent we need.”
In addition to its headquarters in San Mateo, California, Celigo also has locations in nearby Roseville, California, as well as the Netherlands, India and the Philippines.
Mike Langellier, CEO of Indianapolis-based nonprofit tech growth accelerator TechPoint, says like many other Bay Area companies, Celigo realized a need for a more sustainable location to accommodate growth.
“After looking at a number of other markets, Jan and the team picked Indy because they can be a real player here, not just a number, while benefiting from and contributing to a successful tech community,” Langellier said. “They will thrive here, and we look forward to their growth.”
The IEDC has offered Celigo up to $2.5 million in conditional tax credits and training grants, which the company will not be eligible to claim until Hoosier workers are hired for the new jobs.
