Phoenix Business Journal
Infusionsoft, a small business marketing software development company, is planning a move to Chandler with the possibility of adding hundreds of jobs during the next two years.

“We invested a great deal of time in our search for the ideal home for Infusionsoft as we continue this next phase of explosive growth,” said Clate Mask, CEO and co-founder of Infusionsoft. “Chandler’s Price Corridor represents a budding center for tech companies and talent.”
The move will take several months as the company has to complete tenant improvements on the 86,000-square-foot headquarters, officials said.
Infusionsoft already has about 300 employees, and the company said it was looking for a facility that would be capable of accommodating up to 1,000. Although its growth stalled a little during the Great Recession, the company has been hiring again for the past year and its employee count has been growing at a rate of 15 percent per quarter.
“Infusionsoft is a perfect fit for Chandler and the high-tech, creative class workforce we continue to recruit,” said Chandler Mayor Jay Tibshraeny in a statement. “Collaborative partnerships are critical in this knowledge-based economy, and we know Infusionsoft will be a stellar addition to the technology hub being created in the Price Corridor.”
The company plans to create a headquarters that is equal to its current facility that includes a football field, basketball court, cereal bar, library and weight room.
