Colorado-based tech company brings over 250 jobs to the city
March 10, 2016 (GOLDEN, Colo.)—Today, HomeAdvisor announced the opening of its new location for the Colorado Springs professional sales office. The office occupies 21,000 square feet at 9910 Federal Drive in the InterQuest business park. With 140 current employees, the office has room to employ over 250 sales professionals and is the third HomeAdvisor office in Colorado, along with the headquarters in Golden and professional sales office in downtown Denver.
“I am excited about the announcement of HomeAdvisor’s decision to locate their professional sales office in Colorado Springs. We are committed to the success of business growth in our city and look forward to hearing similar positive news as the business climate in Colorado Springs continues to strengthen,” said Colorado Springs Mayor John Suthers.
With opportunities for local professionals to earn over six figures annually, HomeAdvisor’s Colorado Springs office attracted more than 1,100 candidate applications in 2015. The sales office brings a unique work environment that provides professional leadership development opportunities, benefits and proximity to restaurants and shopping.
“As a Colorado Springs native, the expansion of our sales force here is particularly significant to me,” said HomeAdvisor’s President Craig Smith. “We have the opportunity to impact the business community as we continue to invest in the local Colorado economy with this new office.”
In 16 years, HomeAdvisor has transformed from a two-person start-up to a company with global reach. Reporting over $360 million in revenue last year, HomeAdvisor has connected more than 35 million homeowners to the company’s growing network of pre-screened home professionals.
“We welcome HomeAdvisor as the newest great company to locate in Colorado Springs,” said Dirk Draper, CEO of the Colorado Springs Regional Business Alliance. “It is a Colorado-based company, led by a Colorado Springs native – and a real success story. Their selection of the InterQuest business park is testament to the strength of our local business climate.”
