Yodle Opens 100,000 Square Foot Office in Austin; Expects to Hire Hundreds


Texas Business reports:  AUSTIN—Yodle, a provider of local online marketing, announced that it has moved into a leased space of 100,000 square feet in Austin, located at 12234B North IH 35.

The new office will accommodate Yodle's 375 current Austin employees, previously spread across three separate locations, and offers room for expansion with the company planning to grow its Austin staff to more than 750 employees over the next five years.  

Yodle first established a presence in Austin in May 2011 after acquiring ProfitFuel, a locally based SEO company focused on working with small businesses. Yodle already had offices in New York, Boston, Charlotte, and Scottsdale. Since the acquisition, Yodle has doubled its headcount in Austin, with hiring primarily focused on sales and client services roles. Going forward the company's recruiting will continue to be heaviest in those two departments while also including a number of positions in its tech, HR and marketing operations teams.

“Yodle's operations in Austin have already grown significantly over the last year,” said Yodle chief executive Court Cunningham in a prepared statement. “We've chosen to accelerate our expansion in Austin because of the deep talent pool, innovative culture, and ideal economic environment that the city offers. Making this investment in Austin will further enable Yodle to put itself at the forefront of the fast growing and sizeable local online marketing space.”
