USAA Adding Jobs To Valley Location

USAA has added a three-story building to their campus, making room for over 1,000 employees.

The company opened the tech-and-digital-focused building last Friday. There are plans to add additional jobs in the next few years, specifically in the IT development.

The San Antonio-based insurance, banking, investment and retirement products company opened a north Phoenix office off Interstate 17 and Happy Valley Road in 2001 and has 4,500 local employees.

Governor Doug Ducey and Mayor Kate Gallego attended the dedication.

“Phoenix is a critical employment center for USAA and we are very excited to continue our growth here,” said the USAA Regional Vice President, Greg DeBernard.

Mike Pansini, USAA’s vice president of applications development, said the company will predominantly be hiring software engineers/applications developers.

“There’s a lot of IT jobs out there. One thing that continues to be appealing is the mission of USAA,” Pansini said. “We clearly have a purpose. We’re developing IT that serves our military members in their noble positions.”

More than 350 employees were hired for the new facility. The company already has 4,800 employees working in the rest of the campus. Microsoft also purchased a large piece of land in El Mirage to “support the growing demand for cloud and internet services” in the state.
