Keeper Security Expands Operations in Chicago, Illinois

05/17/2019
Keeper Security, Inc., a provider of the leading cybersecurity platforms, plans to add 130 new jobs in Chicago, Illinois.

Keeper’s new headquarters will be located at 820 West Jackson Blvd. in the West Loop. The new 16,000 square-foot space will feature exposed brick and high wood-beam ceilings, standing desks, modernized phone booths, open collaboration spaces, a relaxation lounge and a full-sized kitchen stocked with snacks. Keeper is also expanding operations in El Dorado Hills, California and Cork, Ireland, with all three locations relocating this summer to larger offices to accommodate growth.

This move represents Keeper’s multi-million dollar investment in Chicago and is demonstrative of the city’s flourishing tech ecosystem, Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s Office said. Open positions include inside sales, enterprise sales, sales operations, sales engineering, product training and customer support.

“As savvy businesses of all sizes and industries realize that cybersecurity starts with password security, we’re experiencing increased demand for our business solutions and are quickly adding top talent to our team to support that need,” said Darren Guccione, CEO & Co-founder of Keeper Security. “While we continue to bolster our portfolio of more than 7,000 business customers, there’s no better place to continue to call home than Chicago, and we’re excited to be an important part of the city’s burgeoning technology community.”

The Mayor’s office noted the company’s operational expansion and investment in Chicago are indicative of the thriving technology ecosystem that supports local talent, offers global connectivity and fosters innovation. Keeper joins a list of over 80 technology companies who have grown their footprint in Chicago since 2011.

“Keeper Security’s commitment to and expansion in Chicago demonstrates the city’s blossoming tech scene and ability to draw a skilled workforce for high-tech cybersecurity companies,” Mayor Emanuel said. “This expansion not only benefits its current employees, but also provides jobs for residents across Chicago and strengthens our growing tech economy. I look forward to watching them continue to thrive right here in the city of Chicago for years to come.”
