Zilker Technology to Open Center of Technology in Cleveland

Zilker Technology, a rapidly growing world-class systems integrator specializing in cloud-based enterprise and eCommerce solutions, has announced plans to open a center of technology in Cleveland, OH adding 50+ new positions over the next couple of years.

The center of technology will provide a full range of services, including expert consulting, application and cloud services, and IT infrastructure services for clients across North America. The company plans to add consultants, software architects, IT support engineers, and salespeople to the location.

“Cleveland is an area that Zilker has been interested in for some time,” remarked Rob Thomas, CEO, Zilker Technology. “Many valued members of the Zilker team have strong ties to the City of Cleveland.  After working with Team NEO and JobsOhio it became clear that the environment and talent pool that exists in the Greater Cleveland area is a perfect match for our next office location. We are thrilled and excited to begin the build-out and become a member of the burgeoning Cleveland economy.”

Zilker cited a strong foundation of talent with a pipeline from supportive institutions as reasons for choosing Cleveland for the operation. A team of the Greater Cleveland Partnership, City of Cleveland, Project Management Consultants LLC, JobsOhio and Team NEO collaborated to provide the resources needed to advance the project.

“Zilker is an innovative and rapidly growing cloud integration company, and we welcome its decision to choose Ohio for its first operations east of the Mississippi River,” said Dana Saucier, JobsOhio vice president and head of economic development. “This investment demonstrates Zilker’s confidence in Cleveland’s engineering and software development talent, and we look forward to partnering with them as it brings 56 new jobs to Northeast Ohio.”
