NerdWallet, a website and app that provides consumers and small businesses with trustworthy financial guidance, is establishing the company’s third U.S. location with the opening of an operations center in Scottsdale, Arizona.
The approximately 10,000-square-foot facility located in Lincoln Towne Center will house the company’s sales team including account executives, sales managers and administrative positions. The new office space is a core pillar in NerdWallet’s direct sales strategy expansion.
“We’re excited to be expanding into Arizona because of the diverse and growing population, which offers high performing skilled talent from top local universities, a thriving technology ecosystem and accessibility,” said Andy Bell, Head of the Phoenix Sales Team at NerdWallet.
Founded in 2009, NerdWallet is on a mission to provide clarity for all of life’s financial decisions. NerdWallet provides trustworthy and knowledgeable financial guidance for everything from credit cards to mortgages to investing, through educational content, tools and calculators, product marketplaces and the NerdWallet app.
“As one of the nation’s leading financial services companies, we are thrilled NerdWallet has chosen Scottsdale as their third office location,” said Sandra Watson, President and CEO of the Arizona Commerce Authority (ACA). “We are excited NerdWallet will be part of our dynamic business and financial services industry, creating highly-skilled jobs while increasing their presence on the West Coast.”
“As a fintech leader, NerdWallet’s decision to expand into Scottsdale showcases the opportunity Greater Phoenix presents to innovative companies,” said Chris Camacho, President and CEO of the Greater Phoenix Economic Council. “The region’s operating environment will be of great benefit to NerdWallet, and the company will find opportunity while paving the way for more high-level jobs for residents.”
