MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - A new Google Operations Center will open in northwestern Mississippi next year.

Google made the announcement Wednesday, saying the operations center will bring more than 350 jobs to the area. It marks the company’s first entry into the state.

Agents working out of the northwestern operations center will provide customer service to Google users by assisting with tasks ranging from answering calls to product troubleshooting, ad campaign set-up and more.

The Mississippi center will be the first U.S.-based Google Operations Center.

We’ve reached out to Google for specifics on the facility’s proposed site but a spokesperson for Google says they have yet to finalize a location.
