A leading tech-enabled business services company, TaskUs, will be opening a new location in 2021 in Harlingen, bringing with it hundreds of jobs. The San Antonio-based company delivers CX, AI operations and content security to companies.
“We are very excited for TaskUs to finally land and join our business community in Harlingen,” said Mayor Chris Boswell. “TaskUs’s award-winning, people-first culture, and their great employee perks and benefits are groundbreaking. We look forward to the positive impact that TaskUs will bring to our community as they introduce more jobs.”
Teammates from Valley will begin their journey at TaskUs from home while the company builds its Harlingen workplace. The site will have recreation areas, places for relaxation, collaborative spaces and fun zones. The site will also have a unique work model, allowing TaskUs teammates to work from home 80 percent of the time.
“We are thrilled to meet the amazing talent that Harlingen has to offer,” said TaskUs Senior Vice President of Operations Hemi Sehgal. “We were really impressed with the city’s friendly ambience, its rich culture, and emerging talent pool and look forward to developing the city together with our government partners.”
“Recruitment of large employers is very competitive. Recruiting quality employers who care for their employees and the communities where they locate is even tougher. TaskUs is one of those companies that cares for the employees they hire and for the communities where they do business,” said Raudel Garza, Harlingen EDC CEO. “TaskUs has recognized that this area is well-positioned to provide them with the workforce they need to succeed. We are excited to hear that TaskUs is considering an expansion into our community and Harlingen EDC is ready to help TaskUs with that expansion.”
TaskUs also plans to engage with the community through weekly virtual information sessions. This will allow candidates to meet with recruiting teams, as well as to learn more about the company’s culture, available roles and virtual hiring.
