A competitor of Indianapolis-based Angie’s List (Nasdaq: ANGI) is planning to open an office in the city’s downtown and hire around 50 employees. HomeAdvisor, which is headquartered in Colorado, says it plans to add 10-12 workers initially. Last month, Angie’s List turned away HomeAdvisor parent company InterActiveCorp’s (Nasdaq: IACI) $512 million cash acquisition offer.
HomeAdvisor Vice President of Corporate Communications Brooke Gabbert tells Inside INdiana Business the company’s office near Bankers Life Fieldhouse will "have room to expand."
HomeAdvisor is debuting its new Sales Training Executive Program in Indianapolis and at another office in downtown Denver early next year. The home services ratings provider calls the program "an elite opportunity for professionals who are eager to gain sales leadership experience."
HomeAdvisor Chief Executive Officer Chris Terrill says "as a fast growing digital company, HomeAdvisor has grown its workforce by 65 percent this year. We are expanding our sales offices across the United States, and thriving urban areas such as Denver and Indianapolis are brimming with talented professionals."
It has more than 1,600 employees worldwide and has professional sales offices in New York City, Kansas City, Kansas and Colorado Springs.
The company has already begun accepting applications for the new jobs. You can connect to more information by clicking here.
