Robinhood, an app-focused commission-free trading platform, has just announced they will be coming to Charlotte to build a new $11.7 million trading center and creating close to 400 new jobs with an average salary of about $76,000.
According to a press release from the Economic Investment Committee, the new jobs will include analysts, customer service staff, and operations personnel. The company will be given $3.7 million in tax incentives from the state of North Carolina and the city of Charlott.
“With the second-largest financial center in the nation, North Carolina is one of the fastest growing tech hubs where companies like this know they can flourish,” said North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper.
According to a press release from Robinhood, they intend to open the new Charlotte office this coming September and it will be focused around a new customer experience team.
