Rural Sourcing To Locate Software Development Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico

10/09/2015
Rural Sourcing, an information technology services company, will open its Software Development Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The company plans to create 125 high-tech jobs over the next few years.

"Building New Mexico into a high-tech jobs leader is a core piece of continuing to grow and diversify our economy," said Governor Susana Martinez. "We're proud to welcome Rural Sourcing to New Mexico, and looking forward to their partnership as we keep growing our high-tech sector."

According to state officials, RSI's mission is to be the onshore alternative for software development and support that might traditionally be sent off-shore to countries such as India and China. By opening these technology hubs in low-cost of living, high-quality of life U.S. cities, RSI helps clients lower their Total Cost of Ownership for IT. Furthermore, by having development centers in the U.S., RSI's clients benefit from common language, culture alignment and time zone compatibility. The Atlanta-based company chose Albuquerque due to its talented workforce, high quality of life and low cost of living.

"With the most PhDs per capita in the United States, Albuquerque is a natural fit for the new Rural Sourcing Inc. software development center," said Mayor Richard J. Berry. "We welcome RSI into our community, and I am confident they will continue to grow and flourish in our supportive, cooperative business environment."

"We're excited to be a part of a growing Albuquerque technology community, and we hope to be a catalyst for further growth and investment both in jobs and in the digital economy," said Monty Hamilton, CEO at Rural Sourcing Inc. "We believe Rural Sourcing will flourish in this high-tech haven, given the city's availability of skilled workers and outstanding quality of life. Albuquerque is a strategic city for us in that it enables us better serve our existing West Coast clients, and expand our client base across the western United States." The permanent location of the center is still being determined.

Ray Smith, Chair of Albuquerque Economic Development Inc., added, "We welcome this highly respected and rapidly growing technology company to the Albuquerque metro area. RSI has a great reputation as an employer, providing employees with great benefits, a supportive work environment and career advancement opportunities. We look forward to RSI's success in Albuquerque."
