H-E-B announces plans for Texas tech center that could employ 1,000

SAN ANTONIO, Texas (KWTX) H-E-B Wednesday announced plans for a tech center at its headquarters in San Antonio that could employ as many as 1,000.

“These 1,000 partners will be digitally innovating from right here in downtown San Antonio, serving Texans everywhere,” said Graham Weston, co-founder of Rackspace and Geekdom.

Work will start next year on the five-story, 150,000-square-foot building in downtown San Antonio.

The facility is tentatively scheduled for completion by the summer of 2022.

As part of the expansion, H-E-B says it will add 500 new jobs in San Antonio and will move employees from other locations in the city so its digital teams will be closer together.

“We’re committed to hiring more people, adding the necessary skills to become both a better tech company and even stronger brick-and-mortar retailer,” H-E-B President Craig Boyan said.
