Angie’s List Inc., the fast-growing company that provides customer-review services in 200-plus markets, plans to to expand its Indianapolis headquarters, creating up to 500 new jobs by 2015, it announced this morning.
The company said it will spend $11.5 million to expand its four-block campus on Indianapolis' near-east side to accommodate the new employees.
Angie's List, which already has about 500 employees in Indianapolis, said it has begun the hiring process for the new workers. Positions will range from information technology to sales and member services.
The Indiana Economic Development Corp. said it offered Angie's List up to $7 million in performance-based tax credits and up to $100,000 in training grants based on the company's job-creation plans.
Indianapolis will invest $7.1 million for infrastructure and neighborhood improvements through a combination of tax-increment-financing contributions, New Market Tax Credits and RebuildIndy funds, the city said.
The Angie's List campus is currently bordered on the north by Ohio Street, on the south by East Washington Street, to the west by Interstate 65/70 and to the east by Highland Avenue. The area is part of the Historic Holy Cross Neighborhood
Angie's List was launched in 1995 in Columbus, Ohio, by Angie Hicks. It moved its headquarters to Indianapolis in 1999 and has since expanded to serve members in more than 200 cities across the nation.
