PHOENIX — An electrical contracting company working on Facebook’s data center in Mesa announced Tuesday it is hiring 500 people immediately.

Rosendin aims to fill positions for electrical workers, prefabrication warehouse staff, computer modelers, estimators, project managers and office staff, according to a press release.

The company said jobs opportunities are available to skilled electrical workers and those interested in exploring careers in the construction industry.

“Skilled craft workers understand the value of building innovative data center projects which utilize the newest technologies, but we also want to show men and women outside the industry that there are also great paying positions with career advancements in our office,” Ben Mlinar, Rosendin division manager, said in the release.

At the peak of construction, more than 1,500 workers are expected to be on site daily, the Mesa Data Center said in a Facebook post.

Rosendin, in partnership with general contractor DPR Construction, will build the Facebook data center building and site infrastructure, according to the release.

Construction has already begun at the site in the Elliot Road Technology Corridor, which is expected to use only renewable energy resource.

When finished, the data center is expected to support approximately 100 jobs and represent an investment of more than $800 million, Facebook said in a statement.

The data center will be located on Ellsworth Road north of Elliot Road, near the Eastmark community and Mesa-Phoenix Gateway Airport.
