CareerBuilder.com leases Buckhead office space for expansion
A CareerBuilder spokeswoman declined to tell Atlanta Business Chronicle how many jobs the expansion would create. But, based on the company’s real estate footprint, the company could accommodate at least 200 people at the Buckhead location.
CareerBuilder employs about 675 at its IT headquarters in Gwinnett’s Peachtree Corners. CareerBuilder operates sites in 23 countries outside the U.S., and has a presence in over 60 markets.
The new Buckhead office will be CareerBuilder’s sales hub. Technology and support teams will be based in Peachtree Corners. It’s not clear if the Atlanta expansion is organic, or a consolidation of work from elsewhere in the United States.
While CareerBuilder calls Chicago its corporate headquarters, top executives — including CEO Matt Ferguson, Chief Technology Officer Eric Presley and Chief Sales Officer John Smith—are based in Atlanta.
CareerBuilder, jointly owned by TEGNA, The McClatchy Co. and the Tribune Media Co., provides labor market intelligence, talent management software, and other recruitment products, including online career search services.
CareeBuilder filed with the city of Atlanta for space alteration permits to ready two floors of Two Live Oak tower in the heart of Buckhead.
