In December, the State of Louisiana and its partners, Governor Bobby Jindal and qalytics managing partner Larry Kelly made the announcement that the game testing company would make a move from Seattle to Baton Rouge’s Louisiana Technology Park.
The company will specialize in quality assurance and other development and publishing services for the digital media industry from the new headquarters.
Qalytics serves the rapidly expanding mobile market, specializing in quality assurance-related support. The company helps clients build better game and app software, lower development costs, and launch faster all with its QA and testing services provided.
Kelly cited three primary reasons for moving the headquarters: the state’s digital interactive media tax credit, the team from Louisiana Economic Development the Louisiana Technology Park and the Baton Rouge Area Chamber worked together seamlessly to explain and deliver their programs in a simple, straightforward manner, and, lastly, there’s a wealth of talent in Baton Rouge and surrounding areas for qalytics to work with.
Governor Jindal said, “Every day, more and more high-tech firms like qalytics are recognizing that Louisiana is the perfect location to grow and expand their businesses. Thanks to our thriving job market and strong business climate for tech investment, software companies continue to move to our state and provide outstanding career opportunities for our skilled workforce.”
Qalytics’ software testing and quality assurance company will create 34 new permanent jobs at the tech park, which will result in an additional 35 new indirect jobs, for a total of more than 65 new jobs in the Baton Rouge area.
