Celigo Establishes Indianapolis, Indiana, Operations Center
Celigo employs more than 300 worldwide across its locations in California, the Netherlands, India and the Philippines and currently employs 17 Hoosiers remotely. The California-based company, which provides an integration platform that easily connects and automates processes across the enterprise, is growing to support a rise in demand for automation platforms.
“We are excited to be opening a new office in Indianapolis,” said Jan Arendtsz, founder and CEO of Celigo. “During this critical time for digital transformation, hundreds of new customers have been coming to Celigo to automate business processes across the enterprise. We're looking to significantly increase headcount in 2021 and build a world-class team, and Indianapolis has proven to be a great place to find the top-notch talent we need.”
The Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered Celigo Inc. up to $2.25 million in conditional tax credits and up to $250,000 in conditional training grants based on the company’s job creation plans. These tax credits are performance-based, meaning the company is eligible to claim incentives once Hoosiers are hired. The city of Indianapolis supports the project in partnership with Develop Indy.
"We're happy to welcome Celigo to the Hoosier state where we are leading a Midwest tech transformation with our talented workforce," said Governor Eric J. Holcomb. "Our impressive portfolio of tech companies emerging throughout the state contributes $15.6 billion to the economy each year, and I’m confident Celigo will be an essential part of our vibrant digital sector.”
IEDC partners with industry organizations like TechPoint, Indiana’s non-profit tech growth accelerator, in order to target business recruitment in high-skilled, high-growth sectors. TechPoint works to cultivate business development needs within the tech sectors, helping recruit industry startups, scaleups and established organizations like Celigo to expand or locate in Indiana.
"Like so many Bay Area companies, Celigo realized it needed a more sustainable location for growth," said TechPoint CEO Mike Langellier. "After looking at a number of other markets, Jan and the team picked Indy because they can be a real player here, not just a number, while benefiting from and contributing to a successful tech community. They will thrive here, and we look forward to their growth."
