Hosting giant GoDaddy will add 300 jobs when its new Global Technology Center in Tempe, Ariz., is complete. The ground-breaking for facility was held last week.
The facility’s 150,000 square feet will house 1,300 employees including engineers, developers and customer service staff, the company said. GoDaddy currently employs more than 3,400 people worldwide. The company expects further growth at the center, even beyond the already planned 300. The building should be completed by mid-2014.
In a press release, GoDaddy CEO Blake Irving said the Tempe facility will be a key piece of the company’s growth. “This location in the heart of the (Arizona State University) Research Park is a sweet spot; it’s in the hub of the state’s technology corridor and gives us the space we need for the years ahead.”
In April, GoDaddy announced plans to hire for a new office in Seattle, which will employ some 50 to 65 people once it’s up and running.
