Software development firm Rural Sourcing is planning to open a location in downtown Baton Rouge and is hiring immediately. This will mark the ninth office for the Atlanta-based company.
“As we work to strengthen and diversify our economy, I am proud that digital media and software development companies continue to find a home in Louisiana,” said Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards. “Our highly skilled workforce, competitive resources and welcoming business climate will ensure that Rural Sourcing can hit the ground running on day one.”
The new Baton Rouge location will create 150 direct jobs with an average salary of $75,000, plus 166 indirect jobs for the region.
Rural Sourcing CEO Monty Hamilton says they chose Baton Rouge because of its broad and diverse talent pool, specifically its graduates. “The focus and investment in STEM education at the middle and high school levels, as well as the state’s overall investment in software development talent, make it a great location for us.”
