Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Tuesday announced 400 "cutting-edge" jobs coming to Chicago this year.
Coyote Logistics, specializing in freight shipping across the country, has already begun hiring and will expand its presence in Chicago's Green Exchange building to more than 1,000 employees, Emanuel said.
“Coyote is an example of the best that Chicago has to offer, a cutting-edge firm that hires talented young people and gives them opportunities to advance and contribute to the City’s business fabric,” Emanuel said in a statement.
The company was founded in 2006 and moved to 2565 W. Diversey in Chicago last year.
Coyote owners say they're looking for qualified, smart, motivated workers in the areas of sales, operations and technology to help the company continue its growth in 2012.
"Our people are our only asset, and our people love this area and the building," said Coyote founder and CEO Jeff Silver. "We are convinced that this is the right place to add 400 more."
