The job ad, which has been removed, was attributed to Arthur Grand Technologies Inc., a Dallas-based firm.
The ad said the company was seeking a business analyst who lives in the area. The wage offered was $75 an hour.
The post went viral, with users online calling it racist.
The company responded to the online outrage in a post on Linkedin.

The company added that it has taken legal action against the job poster.
Arthur Grand Technologies Inc. has been offering IT staffing services for more than 10 years. The company says it prides itself on the "diversity of our staff and leadership."
