Economic development officials in Boise have announced a publicly traded company that offers cloud-based payroll and human capital management software has selected the city for its next expansion.
Paylocity says it plans to create 500 jobs in the city over the next five years. Areas of employment include client services, implementation, technical services and software development.
A company official says Paylocity picked Boise because of its “expanding tech presence and a flourishing community and culture.”
The Illinois corporation is a publicly traded company on the NASDAQ exchange. The company dates back to 1997 and went public a year and a half ago.
Boise Mayor David Bieter is pleased with the addition of Paylocity to the city's economy. "Paylocity is a welcome addition to our thriving downtown and rapidly growing high-tech sector, and they will create quality jobs for our citizens."
Those announcing the deal this afternoon say the recruitment process took seven months. The company is interviewing now and hiring immediately with plans to open its Boise office in January, on the fourth floor of the C.W. Moore Plaza.
