CHARLOTTE – EY (formerly known as Ernst & Young) is going to add 375 jobs in various technology fields with an average salary exceeding $75,000.

The financial services firm and N.C. Gov. Roy Cooper announced the news on Tuesday.

EY plans what it calls a “wavespace” innovation center, joining one of several already operated by the firm.

“We are seeing new and diverse skills bringing creative ideas and innovation to business leaders across the State,” Malcomb Coley, leader of Charlotte’s EY office, said, according to The Charlotte Observer.

“It’s our hope that EY wavespace will build on this momentum, providing a physical location where innovative talents come together to collaborate and navigate this transformative age.”

Cooper said the company will add the jobs by expanding its Charlotte operation and investing about $8 million over five years.

“The EY wavespace innovation center in Charlotte will create even more opportunities for North Carolinians to develop new ideas and creative solutions,” Cooper said.

The expansion will include an innovation center that focuses on helping companies understand how artificial intelligence, robotics and other technologies are changing their industries.

Cooper’s office said the positions will be in data analytics, robotics and other areas.

About $3.2 million in state incentives have been authorized over 12 years if the company meets job creation and investment targets.
