Self-storage marketplace operator SpareFoot Inc. plans to hire up to 20 more workers for its Austin call center


The company has scheduled an open house on Jan. 14 to recruit workers as part of a plan to grow the center from 24 workers to 42 this year. The invitation-only open house is from 5-7 p.m. at SpareFoot’s downtown headquarters at 720 Brazos St., according to a company news release


SpareFoot, which was founded in 2008, operates a website that compares prices of self-storage spaces. It also enables commercial and residential property owners to list spaces for rent, while the company generates revenue from transaction fees


It's one of the five startups that completed the 10-week Capital Factory incubator program in 2009. SpareFoot, which employs 105 workers, has raised at least $4.5 million in investment capital


Call center workers handle inquiries about self-storage rentals from customers nationally. Prospective call center candidates must submit résumés and cover letters by Jan. 11 to SpareFoot recruiter Rachel Morse at rmorse@sparefoot.com. Be sure to put “ACE Team Open House” in the subject line of the email, company officials said
