Company to create recruiting jobs in Chicago
Posted on December 3, 2017
One company is busy expanding and creating more recruiting jobs in Chicago.
Glassdoor, one of the world’s largestjob sites, is opening the company’s newest office located in Chicago’s rapidly developing Fulton Market District.
Glassdoor officially announced it had selected Chicago for its expansion in late 2015 and opened its first temporary office location in the city in February 2016. The company announced it had selected the Fulton Market location for its permanent Chicago home in May 2016. In under two years the company’s Chicago office has grown from 30 employees to more than 200, and it is continuing to grow.
Glassdoor signed a long-term lease for the 52,000-square-foot office in the Fulton West building, managed by Sterling Bay. The Glassdoor space was architected in collaboration with Skender Construction and design firm Valerio Dewalt Train Associates.
“The Glassdoor office is Chicago,” said Joseph Valerio, principal at the Valerio Dewalt Train Associates, the lead architect for the Glassdoor space. “We integrated activity nodes that shape and curve space in a way that reflects both new initiatives and a continued commitment to employee empowerment.”
Glassdoor’s collaborative, open office space incorporates Chicago themes throughout its design, including sweeping views of the city’s skyline. The art and graphics in the space were developed in collaboration with Glassdoor’s own brand design team and Media Objectives, an interdisciplinary design studio housed within Valerio Dewalt Train Associates. The office will have access to a diverse rotation of lunch options from local food vendors brought onsite for employees, along with easy access to nearby food and restaurants. Parking is available, along with proximity to public transportation and the building’s shuttle services to nearby train stops.
Glassdoor is headquartered in the San Francisco Bay Area and employs more than 750 people around the world.
