OVERLAND PARK, Kan.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The evolution of Virgin Mobile USA continues with the selection of downtown Kansas City, Missouri, as the location for its new headquarters. A search for premier talent has begun among all industries – including executive-level positions – to join an entrepreneurial team as part of the brand’s relaunch. Construction on the new office space is expected to be completed by the end of 2016.

“Kansas City has an emphasis on entrepreneurship and technology, especially in the downtown and crossroads areas, which fits exactly with the direction for the new Virgin Mobile,” said Dow Draper, Virgin Mobile USA CEO. “It is a vibrant place to live and work, giving us the ability to attract a world-class team with experience across multiple industries to become part of the global Virgin family.”

Innovative, talented individuals who think differently and like to work hard are encouraged to visit the Virgin Mobile Career Site for a list of available positions. Roles range from career professional to executive roles across most disciplines, but primarily focused in marketing, customer experience delivery, and website design and management.

“Our CEO, Marcelo Claure, continues to lead Sprint with more of a startup mentality,” said Draper. “The latest example is carving Virgin Mobile USA out to act more independently, including the ability to experiment with new business models, as well as the opportunity to use different technology and service partners. We are a unique brand, and I look forward to building out our team with the best local and national talent to be part of our exciting new venture.”
