EXL, a New York-based data analytics and operations management firm, is establishing an office in Lee’s Summit and plans to hire 250 employees there, the company announced Monday.
The company, which has more than 27,000 global employees in 43 locations, said it chose Lee’s Summit after a national search.
The job haul is the largest for Lee’s Summit in five years, according to Tim Cowden, president and CEO of the Kansas City Area Development Council.
EXL has already hired about 70 employees in the area for a contact center. The company also plans to hire employees for back-office services.
Contact center employees will need a high school diploma, an EXL official said, and will be providing roadside assistance to customers of one of EXL’s insurance clients. Other jobs may require more education.
