MyBuys expands Ann Arbor office; 50 more jobs this year

MyBuys, the growing California-based company, is spreading some of that job-creating wealth here in Ann Arbor.

The company has added about 20 jobs in its downtown Ann Arbor location over the last year, bringing its satellite office staff to 54 people and a handful of interns over the summer. The firm expects to add another 50 jobs this year.

"The hiring has happened in fits and spurts in the past," says Drew Stirton, general manager of the Ann Arbor office of MyBuys. "Now it's a more predictable flow of 10-15 hires per quarter."

MyBuys makes personalized product recommendations for online retailers. Two years ago it agreed to invest $5.4 million in establishing an Ann Arbor office as part of a 10-year tax credit deal with the Michigan Economic Development Corp. In exchange, it agreed to create 250 jobs in Ann Arbor over that decade.

MyBuys is still on track to hit that goal, Stirton says. He expects the Ann Arbor office to continue to grow as the company expands its services into the social media and mobile applications markets.

"We're signing a lot of small, medium, and large online retailers," Stirton says. "We have also jumped into media and advertising in a big way."
