The $14 million project will create 630 new jobs.

“The Macy’s footprint is historic in Atlanta, and we appreciate the company’s latest investment here in the technology sector,” said GDEcD Commissioner Pat Wilson. “The Macy’s Technology location in Johns Creek has clearly made an impact with company leaders, and the high-tech jobs that will be kept there and created in Midtown Atlanta are further evidence that our ever-expanding technology talent is a major asset to the state.”

The majority of the new positions will be centered on software development - including junior and senior-level software engineers - as well as software architects to guide technology strategy, lead design, configuration, and implementation, the company said in a news release.
