INDIANAPOLIS (Inside INdiana Business) – A New York-based technology company plans to open a business in central Indiana. Wunderkind Corp., which acquired Indianapolis-based SmarterHQ in November, claims to be investing more than $ 3 million in working with SmarterHQ on the north side of Indy and creating up to 224 jobs by the end of 2025.
According to its website, Wunderkind has developed a multichannel marketing platform for e-commerce retailers, publishers and travel companies. The company says the expansion into Indy will help accelerate the ability to deliver new products to corporate retailers by expanding their engineering and customer success teams.
“The Wunderkind team and our SmarterHQ friends are celebrating joining the Indiana Tech community with an acquisition that we believe will accelerate our collective market impact and local job creation,” said Ryan Urban, CEO by Wunderkind, in a press release. “Marketing tech companies have done well in Indianapolis, generating billions of exits. With our continued growth, we are confident that Wunderkind can add to Indy’s success story.”
Wunderkind currently employs 440 people in offices in New York, Austin, London and now Indianapolis. The company announced that it will create an average of 40 jobs per year in Indy and is currently hiring for implementation, customer development and customer success roles.
Indiana Economic Development Corp. Announces that it will offer Wunderkind contingent tax credits of up to $ 3.4 million unless approved by the IEDC Board of Directors. The company will not be able to take advantage of the incentives until Hoosier employees have been hired for the new jobs.
