Fetch Rewards, a consumer rewards app, plans to open an office facility and customer service hub in Birmingham, creating 200 full-time jobs.
The project, an investment of $1 million, reflects the Wisconsin-based company’s rapid growth trajectory as it scales its technology.
“Fetch Rewards’ decision to base a new operation in Birmingham is great news for the city and the entire state of Alabama,” said Gov. Kay Ivey. “They will find that Birmingham is a welcoming, tech-savvy home where they can find all the ingredients needed to build a successful business operation.”
Fetch is already hiring for a variety of positions including support, data integrity, engineering, product and fraud. The company has a remote-first hybrid office model, allowing its employees to work from anywhere. It expects its facility to be ready to open this spring.
“With Fetch continuing to grow exponentially, Birmingham is the perfect place to launch the next chapter of our expansion,” said Wes Schroll, CEO and founder of Fetch Rewards. “It’s an up-and-coming technology and entrepreneurship hub with an incredible pool of local talent.”
Launched in 2017, Fetch works with consumer product companies, retailers and restaurants to give shoppers access to free rewards with every purchase. The app allows shoppers to accumulate reward points by submitting pictures of any receipt and by linking ereceipts from online retailers. Points are then redeemed for gift cards and other rewards. The app currently has 13 million active users.
“These are high-paying jobs with an average salary of $89,000 a year, which will attract even more people to our region,” said Ron Kitchens, CEO of the Birmingham Business Alliance. “The presence of Shipt, Landing, Fetch and many others that are hiring hundreds of people right now is a great thing for our community.”
