Interactive Intelligence Group Inc. (Nasdaq: ININ), a global provider of
software and services designed to improve the customer experience, plans
to add more than 300 jobs in Indiana by the end of 2014. The growth
follows the addition of more than 170 Indiana-based employees last year,
for a total statewide headcount of nearly 1,000 as of Dec. 31, 2013.
Additionally, the company is in negotiations to lease a new 112,000
square-foot building at its North-side Indianapolis campus, with an
anticipated occupancy date of the third quarter of 2015.
“Our business is growing by all measures,” said Interactive Intelligence
founder and CEO Dr. Donald Brown. “Our Indiana job growth of 23 percent
last year topped the previous year’s healthy rate of 18 percent. Our
planned job additions would result in more than 1,300 Indiana employees
by the end of 2014.
“The tech sector is a critically important part of the state’s growth
and future success. With our cloud business growing at an exceptional
rate, an increasing number of large customer deals, and exciting new
products in the pipeline, we anticipate continued expansion with an even
greater positive impact on the Indiana economy,” Brown said.
Last year Interactive Intelligence expanded its North-side Indianapolis
campus, which now occupies nearly 300,000 square feet spanning four

“Hoosiers are driving the future of technology, with a tech community
that’s strong and fueled by impressive homegrown success stories like
that of Interactive Intelligence’s,” said Indiana Governor Mike Pence.
“In Indiana, high-tech companies gain an advantage over their
competition with a business climate that is affordable and a talented
workforce at their fingertips. We’ve built Indiana into a state that
works, designed to poise companies for days like today, where the future
is bright with opportunity.”
“Companies like Interactive Intelligence that offer high-tech job
opportunities help us attract and retain talented people in Indy,” said
Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard. “Interactive Intelligence’s phenomenal
growth sends a powerful message to people seeking jobs in the tech field
and other similar companies about the strong economy and talent pipeline

“We compete daily with global companies, some of which are at least ten
times our size,” Brown said. “Our success shows that you don’t need to
be in Silicon Valley to be a market leader. Indiana’s great
universities, low cost of living and excellent quality of life enable us
to attract and keep top talent, which is at the heart of our business.”
Interactive Intelligence grew worldwide jobs last year by 25 percent,
with a current worldwide headcount of more than 1,900 employees.
