Polleo Systems, a cloud computing and strategic technology servicer, announced plans last week to expand its Carmel headquarters, creating up to 36 new jobs by 2016.
“Polleo Systems is proof of the innovative talent that calls the Hoosier State home. Our high-tech industry is experiencing rapid growth as companies continue to realize the many advantages of doing business in Indiana,” said Eric Doden, president of the Indiana Economic Development Corp.
The company plans to invest $2.5 million to expand its cloud platform, as well as lease and equip a new Carmel facility. Polleo Systems is planning to hire new system engineers, account executives and technicians for its north side location. Interested applicants should email their resumes to email@example.com.
“The decision to continue our growth in Indiana is highlighted by the state’s commitment to small businesses and the opportunities that the state makes available to support our development,” said Talbott Sumners, president of Polleo Systems. “We feel that Indiana welcomes the high-tech community and companies like Polleo Systems.”
Founded in 2011 by Sumners, Polleo Systems provides cloud computing and technology services for small and medium-sized businesses. The company, which is also opening an additional facility in Orlando, Fla., was recently named a 2013 TechPoint Mira Awards finalist in the category of IT/Tech Service Excellence and Innovation.
The Indiana Economic Development Corp. offered Polleo Systems up to $300,000 in conditional tax credits and up to $40,000 in training grants based on the company’s job creation plans. These tax credits are performance-based, meaning until Indiana residents are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives. The city of Carmel also supported this project.
“We are thrilled about the expansion and addition of new jobs at Polleo Systems’ current facility in Carmel City Center,” Mayor Jim Brainard said. “The city realizes a long-term gain through local investment and job creation in redevelopment areas such as City Center. Polleo Systems’ decision to invest and expand in this location demonstrates exactly the type of economic impact the city anticipated for Carmel and the region.”
Polleo Systems is the latest company to announce plans to expand its Central Indiana operations. Just last month, Allegient announced its second expansion in the region in as many years. The high-tech business solutions firm will invest $225,000 to expand its Carmel operations, adding up to 36 new jobs.
