BlueCrew Joins Growing List of Tech Companies Relocating HQs to Chicago

Company to bring thousands of hourly jobs to the Chicago market


Earlier this month, BlueCrew, an IAC-owned company, announced they are relocating their corporate headquarters to the Mart in Chicago from San Francisco. Additionally, the company shared plans to hire more than 100 employees in the Chicago office over the next year.

“Chicago’s tech scene has grown tremendously over the past several years because of our deep talent pool, global connectivity, world-class infrastructure, affordability and amazing quality of life,” said Mayor Emanuel. “BlueCrew joins the long list of businesses choosing Chicago for their future.”

BlueCrew is an on-demand staffing platform that connects top employers nationwide with pre-qualified candidates through its mobile application where candidates can accept jobs in real-time. BlueCrew fills 90 percent of employer jobs in less than three days while traditional staffing agencies fill 60-70 percent with an average lead time of two weeks. In addition to relocating its corporate HQ, BlueCrew will launch its on-demand staffing platform for flexible W-2 work throughout the Chicago area, providing thousands of jobs to hourly workers across industries including warehousing, e-commerce, hospitality, and events.

BlueCrew is the 58th company to announce its headquarters in Chicago since Mayor Emanuel took office in 2011. On March 4, Site Selection magazine named Chicago the top metro area in the nation for corporate relocation and investment for the sixth consecutive year.

“With its booming technology and innovation economy, Chicago continues to attract top tech companies and talent from around the world,” said Andrea Zopp, President and CEO of World Business Chicago. “We are thrilled to welcome BlueCrew into our thriving tech ecosystem and look forward to watching them grow.”
