Field services software company FieldAware announced it is expanding operations in Chicago. 

The company will open a 6,000-square-foot office in the city’s Loop central business district. Eighty employees are scheduled to staff the facility.

“With operations in other locations around the world, we were excited that FieldAware made the decision to select Chicago to support its growth plans,” said Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel. “FieldAware is an innovative high-tech company that is creating new jobs for Chicagoans and making a critical investment in the city and its workforce.” 

Brendan Sullivan, the company’s marketing officer, said the Windy City was a natural for FieldAware.

“As a global company serving the needs of small- to medium-service businesses, Chicago was a natural choice in selecting the location to support our business growth,” Sullivan said. “With great access to a talented and educated workforce, a strong transportation hub and solid support for business and entrepreneurism, Chicago will be a springboard for accelerating the pace and capacity of our business growth.”
