INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Inside INdiana Business) – One America Works in San Francisco is partnering with Indianapolis-based growth accelerator TechPoint to host a virtual recruitment event on Friday. The organization says the event will connect tech talent with top employers from the Indianapolis area, including Columbus-based Cummins (NYSE: CMI), Genesys, Angie’s List and Formstack.

One America says entry-level and mid-career positions are available across engineering, product, and sales, among others. The Indianapolis event, which will be held from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m., follows other virtual recruitment events in Pittsburgh and Columbus.

“The move to remote and distributed workplaces opens up a massive opportunity for tech companies to hire from anywhere and build up their operations in less expensive regions with higher quality of living for talent,” said Patrick McKenna, founder of One America Works. “This move away from expensive, crowded cities like Silicon Valley and New York City benefits places like Indianapolis, where an expanding infrastructure and investment in technology business makes it a magnet for tech talent, both homegrown and new residents.”

The organization says Indianapolis’ strategic location and favorable cost of doing business make it a proven choice for growing companies as they seek new locations for expansion and investment.

“With $7B in tech acquisitions, one of the fastest growth rates, and one of Salesforce’s largest global hubs, Indy is in a sweet spot where you can have a successful tech career, the quality of life advantages of a mid-size city, own a home, as well as make a personal impact in one of the great next-generation tech hubs,” said TechPoint President Mike Langellier. “We welcome both local talent and out-of-state professionals ready to make a move and either work remotely or land a job with Indy tech employers and are happy to support the One America Works virtual recruiting fair.”
