West Coast Distribution Center Looking to Fill 150-180 Positions
The Economic Development Authority of Western Nevada (EDAWN) announced yesterday that Jet.com, an online retailer, has opened a 160,000 square-foot, atthe Tahoe Reno Industrial Center.
The company said it will hire 150-180 employees by the end of 2016.
Jet.com launched July, 2015, with the promise to be the smartest way to shop and save. At checkout, customers can save by choosing a lower-cost payment method or opting out of free returns.
“We chose the Reno area due to its strong workforce, fulfillment infrastructure and ability to provide 2-day shipping to most western states in the U.S.,” said Nate Faust, Jet.com COO. “We’re very excited about the new fulfillment center and our presence in the Reno area.”
EDAWN welcomed the company to the area.
“It is exciting to see an up and coming e-commerce company choose our region for their growth in the west,” said Mike Kazmierski, CEO of EDAWN. “Jet.com has an exceptional business model that has had amazing success with consumers in just a short period of time. We are proud to be a part of this innovative new company’s explosive growth.”
