BlueCrew Relocates Headquarters to Chicago, Illinois
According to Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s office, BlueCrew’s Chicago headquarters is now open with plans to hire more than 100 employees in its Chicago office over the next year.
“We’re thrilled to be opening our new Chicago headquarters among some of the best tech companies and talent in the world,” said Adam Roston, CEO of BlueCrew.
“Despite a record tight labor market, an overwhelming number of Americans aren’t getting the reliable work and employment protections they need to make a dependable living wage. Gig economy apps have delivered the flexibility and control but without overtime, workers’ compensation, health insurance, and other benefits. We believe Americans deserve more: both flexible, reliable work opportunities and worker protection. It shouldn’t have to be an either or. We’re equally thrilled to be launching our platform in Chicago next month to bring thousands of flexible W-2 jobs to Chicago,” he said.
"Chicago's tech scene has grown tremendously over the past several years because of our deep talent pool, global connectivity, world-class infrastructure, affordability and amazing quality of life," said Mayor Emanuel. "BlueCrew joins the long list of businesses choosing Chicago for their future. I look forward to seeing BlueCrew prosper in Chicago for years to come."
“I want to thank Adam, Gino and the rest of the BlueCrew for their vote of confidence in Chicago and in Illinois,” said Deputy Governor Dan Hynes. “Our dedicated workforce and our emergence as a leading tech hub are a perfect fit for what BlueCrew brings to Illinois. Governor Pritzker was a pioneer in developing tech jobs before he took office and his commitment continues with the support for BlueCrew and the other companies who continue the trend of making Chicago a tech leader.”
“With its booming technology and innovation economy, Chicago continues to attract top tech companies and talent from around the world,” said Andrea Zopp, President & CEO of World Business Chicago. “We are thrilled to welcome BlueCrew into our thriving tech ecosystem and look forward to watching them grow.”
