Yodle adds 12,000 sq ft and 100 jobs

Yodle, a New York-based online marketing tech company, announced this week that it will be expanding its presence in Scottsdale, Ariz.
Yodle is expanding its office at Arizona State University’s SkySong and is looking to add 100 positions over the next year. The new office adds an additional 12,000 square feet to Yodle’s operations, giving the company a combined total of 39,000 square feet in the heart of Scottsdale’s growing innovation scene.
“I’m thrilled that Yodle is continuing to expand and be part of our growing high-tech cluster in Scottsdale,” Scottsdale Mayor W.J. “Jim” Lane said in a statement. “This is an example of the value companies see in our strong labor pool as well as the premier business environment that Scottsdale offers.”
Yodle will primarily be increasing its sales positions and the company is also looking to add jobs in IT, human resources and client services, Yodle’s Chief Human Resources Officer Erin Brockman said.
“These positions offer an opportunity to work on a fast-paced team and contribute to a growing company,” Brockman added. “We look for employees that support our mission of helping local businesses find and keep their customers.”

Although the company originally opened its Scottsdale office in 2008, Yodle is using its expansion efforts to help the company better position itself and its Marketing Essentials in the local market.
Marketing Essentials is a complete online marketing package developed by Yodle that helps businesses find and keep customers by streamlining their online presence.
Companies can build a website, collect reviews and manage their social outreach through the program’s automation of marketing campaigns. Add in a dose of Yodle’s SEO technology to the mixture and it creates a punchy solution to help get small businesses found.
Ranked No. 9 in Forbes 2014 list of America’s Most Promising Companies, the company has about 45,000 small business clients across the country and is only looking forward in terms of growth.
“Scottsdale has been a great partner for Yodle since we opened our office in the SkySong building,” Brockman said. “We believe that the talent pool and culture in Scottsdale will help us reach our goal of delivering online marketing solutions to more local businesses helping them to find and keep customers.”
