Arlington, Virginia-based U.Group is expanding to Indianapolis, with plans to immediately hire 12 employees.

U.Group is a tech creative design company offering customer-eccentric technical solutions for the public and private sectors. The company was born from a merger between ByteCubed and CHIEF last February. U.Group currently employs nearly 300 team members, most of whom work out of its D.C.-area offices, though the company also has an office in Portland.

To land this expansion deal, which will be the company’s third base of operations, U.Group worked closed with the Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC).

“We’re grateful to have the support of the Indiana Economic Development Corporation in establishing our presence in central Indiana,” said U.Group CEO Lena Trudeau in a press release. “The IEDC has extended incentives that will help U.Group grow and thrive while also bringing new high-skilled jobs to the community.”

U.Group is looking for technologists with three to five years of experience in engineering and software development to lead its new Midwest office. Outside of these immediate hiring plans, the company is also planning to hire 100 more employees in Indianapolis by the end of 2020. This new office will offer more of the U.Group’s tech, data, consulting and creative services, a press release states.

“Indiana’s tech community is sinking three-pointers all day long when it comes to showing off our tech ‘chops’ if you will,” said Indiana Gov. Eric J. Holcomb in a statement. “We’re extremely grateful U.Group chose to grow in Indiana, bringing high-skilled career opportunities to the state, and we’re confident that Indiana’s talented tech pipeline will help propel U.Group’s new operations.”
