Deere Expands Footprint with Chicago Office

Deere & Company this week announced the expansion of its U.S. footprint with the opening of a new Chicago office. The company plans to add 150 information technology jobs at the office over the next two years, with the goal of hiring a total of 300 positions to support IT and additional roles. The facility will target IT capabilities in eCommerce, cloud, data and analytics, and a variety of innovation-related technical skills. Illinois Governor JB Pritzker says, “John Deere’s new technology center in Chicago is just one example of the innovation and investment Illinois is inspiring with our top-tier talent and world-class infrastructure.” The new space, located in the fast-growing Fulton Market neighborhood, will allow Deere to recruit from the deep bench of diverse talent in Chicago and provide them with the flexibility of in-person collaboration. The new office is expected to open in late summer or early fall of 2022.
