Below is the release about the planned Stixis Technologies Software Center in Baton Rouge, which was originally posted on opportunitylouisiana.com.
Today, Gov. Bobby Jindal and Stixis Technologies Inc. President and CEO Rayudu Dhananjaya announced the company will open its first U.S. development center at the Louisiana Technology Park in Baton Rouge. The company will create 230 new direct jobs with an average salary of $59,500 per year, plus benefits. Based in Bangalore, India, Stixis Technologies Inc. engineers comprehensive software solutions coupled with application management, maintenance and support for customers across a range of sectors, including oil and gas, health care, digital media and entertainment, education, retail and government. Stixis chose Louisiana for this project after considering many other states around the nation, including Virginia, Florida, Texas, Pennsylvania and Wyoming.
In addition to the 230 new direct jobs, Louisiana Economic Development estimates the project will result in an additional 233 new indirect jobs, for a total of more than 450 new jobs in the state’s Capital Region and surrounding areas. Stixis will begin operations immediately at the Louisiana Technology Park, a hub for early-stage and startup technology firms, and the company will reach employment of the 230 direct jobs by 2019.
Gov. Jindal said, “Since 2008, we’ve made economic development one of our top priorities and worked to make Louisiana a place where businesses want to invest. That work has paid off – Louisiana has become the nation’s new frontier for business opportunity, and nowhere is that more evident than in the technology sector. With the nation’s top state business climate and a top-notch tech workforce, Louisiana offers the very best value for expanding and relocating technology firms.
“It’s no wonder the world’s leading software development, digital media and information technology providers are coming to Louisiana – from EA, Gameloft and GE Capital to CGI, CSC and IBM. We’re also adding key emerging players, such as Perficient, Enquero, 4th Source, Performance Software and, now, Stixis. We’re proud that this global company selected Louisiana over many other states as the very best place to grow its technology business.”
The company’s Baton Rouge site will be known as Stixis AMIGOs Development Center, with AMIGOs representing Agility Metamorphosis Incubator for Global Operations. Stixis offers a flexible model – serving clients at company sites, nearby, remotely, or a mix of all three – and provides technology consulting, application management, software product development, maintenance and infrastructure management through a self-organizing team of Stixis and client personnel.
