Indianapolis-based Knowledge Services is planning to add 400 jobs over the next two years. The information technology and professional services company intends to invest $2.1 million into expanding its headquarters to meet demand throughout the country. This will be Knowledge Services’ third expansion in five years.
Chief Executive Officer Julie Bielawski says "Indiana continues to be a great place that is conducive for growth and prosperity. Many factors played into Knowledge Services’ commitment to growing in the Hoosier state. Not only does Indiana offer a favorable business climate, but they also have placed a great emphasis on growing the advanced technology sector."
The Indiana Economic Development Corp. says the new jobs will boost the company’s Indiana work force to 1,200 by 2019. It currently employs 2,000 throughout the U.S. In 2011, it detailed plans to grow by 200 employees and three years ago, 400 more. The next expansion could nearly double the Knowledge Services footprint on Indy’s north side.
The cloud software as a service and mobile application technology business is adding software development, program specialist, client services, sales and marketing positions. Its client list includes multiple government agencies, Chicago-based Hill-Rom, which has a major presence in Batesville, as well as Disney and Mattel.
GuideSoft Inc., which does business as Knowledge Services, has been offered up to $2.1 million in conditional tax incentives from the IEDC. You can connect to more about the growth by clicking here.
