CHARLOTTE, NC (AP) — The stock-trading app company Robinhood will build a customer service center in North Carolina and create nearly 400 jobs by 2025.

The company and Gov. Roy Cooper’s office announced the investment on Tuesday.

Cooper’s office says the California-based company will hire analysts, customer service staff and operations personnel at a Charlotte-area location.

A Commerce Department document says Robinhood chose North Carolina for its third customer service center over locations in four other states.

A state committee approved an incentives agreement whereby Robinhood could receive $3 million in payments over 12 years if it meets job-creation and investment thresholds.
