FullStack, a full-service professional employer organization (PEO) and human resources partner for scaling companies, announced plans to expand operations in central Indiana. The company, which has already hired four full-time positions toward its goal, plans on creating up to 21 new jobs over the next several years. 
"FullStack's focus on providing services to scaling companies is the perfect fit for central Indiana, as the region is home to a thriving startup ecosystem," said Indiana Secretary of Commerce Jim Schellinger. "It's encouraging to see so much growth in our state from companies like FullStack that are providing critical services to support other growing businesses."
FullStack provides a one-stop, scalable HR solution to small companies, providing services such as payroll and benefits administration, HR compliance, employee relations support and talent management. The Indianapolis-based company, which is currently headquartered in south Broad Ripple, will invest $112,000 over the next few years to support its growth, ensuring its expanding team is equipped and enabled to meet client demand.

“FullStack is excited to continue to grow here in Indiana,” said Michael Kelly, FullStack co-founder and CEO. “With COVID-19, we are seeing more and more remote work opportunities - this has led to an increased need for a remote HR services option like ours. FullStack partners with scaling companies who believe the employee experience from onboarding to offboarding is paramount to their success. Our services provide companies tangible solutions in their challenge to compete with large companies for great talent. We have a lot to build on here in central Indiana and want to continue to invest in the tech and small business communities.”  
Founded in 2017 by Dawn Lively and Michael Kelly, FullStack has focused its efforts on serving startups and scaling technology and technology-adjacent companies, as well as developing products and services to support leaders and employees in those companies. This niche focus differentiates FullStack in the PEO market locally and nationally. 
“Indianapolis is committed to nurturing a strong ecosystem for companies to build and grow,” said Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett. “Today’s news is exciting both because it marks new, good-paying jobs in our area, and because it signals the success of a business that can help boost other companies as they scale up, further strengthening that ecosystem.” 
The Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered FullStack Inc. up to $270,000 in conditional tax credits based on the company’s plans to create up to 21 new jobs by the end of 2024. These tax credits are performance-based, meaning the company is eligible to claim incentives once Hoosiers are hired. The city of Indianapolis supports the project in partnership with Develop Indy.
