Domain registrar expands footprint in Iowa.
Domain name registrar GoDaddy is bulking up its customer service operations near Cedar Rapids, Iowa. The new customer service facility should be running by this spring. The company is looking to hire 60 people in the next eight weeks, but the facility has 50,000 square feet and can accommodate 500 employees.
Cedar Rapids already houses a number of GoDaddy employees in marketing, development, legal and business intelligence. These employees will move to GoDaddy’s new building at 1 Parsons Drive.
Street name sound familiar? Yes, it’s named after GoDaddy founder Bob Parsons. But it’s not a new street; the company is buying the building Parsons previously used for Parsons Technology, a company he sold to Intuit for $64 million in 1994.
In addition to its Scottsdale headquarters and Iowa, the company has offices in Denver and Washington, D.C., as well as a data center in the Netherlands.
