Cargill to Open Atlanta Office, Creating 400 New Jobs

Global food and agriculture leader Cargill is building on its already strong Georgia presence by establishing a new office hub in Atlanta, creating more than 400 jobs in the metro area. The company’s Digital, Technology and Data (DT&D) organization will be the initial primary occupant of the Atlanta hub, which will open in the fall of 2024.

“Georgia, and Atlanta, are welcoming, business-friendly environments that provide an ideal backdrop for Cargill’s investment in technology and innovation,” says Cargill Board Chair and CEO Brian Sikes, “With a new office hub in Atlanta, Cargill will be able to harness the immense potential of digital technology to drive our business forward.”

Cargill is now hiring in preparation for its fall opening. Current and future job opportunities are available in data engineering, generative artificial intelligence, SAP and other critical fields – all of which will be posted in the careers section of Cargill’s website.

According to Jennifer Hartsock, Cargill’s chief information and digital officer, the company’s decision to establish an office in Atlanta underscores its recognition of the city's thriving tech innovation hub. “Atlanta's rich pool of technical talent provides unparalleled access to the expertise needed to drive our digital transformation,” says Hartsock. “Employees working at this facility will help create digital solutions that power our global food supply chain, harness analytics and artificial intelligence to open new markets and drive technical innovation to make our food system more sustainable and accessible.”

With more than 159 years of experience, Cargill sources, makes and delivers food products around the world, operating in 70 countries and selling to 125 global markets. The company is also an active community partner, contributing more than $1 million in the past year to support the Georgia FFA Foundation; Georgia Mountain Food Bank; Emory University; Minorities in Agriculture, Natural Resources and Related Sciences (MANNRS); and local schools.

“Atlanta is a city committed to opportunity where companies have the talent, resources and welcoming environment needed to accelerate business in today’s global economy,” says Atlanta Mayor Andre Dickens. “By choosing Atlanta, Cargill is creating 400 new jobs that can further our economic growth and access to upward mobility for more residents in the city.”
