Smith Micro Software Inc. Creating At Least 230 Jobs in Pittsburgh Area

Smith Micro Software Inc., a software development and marketing company, will create at least 230 jobs in southwestern Pennsylvania when it establishes a new research and development center in the Pittsburgh area. The company will invest $7 million and create the jobs in the coming three years. Smith Micro has not yet selected a site.

"Pittsburgh is a booming technology city, and opening a new research and development center here will not only strategically expand Smith Micro's global footprint, but will also fuel job growth throughout the region," said Smith Micro CEO William W. Smith Jr. "Smith Micro was seeking a creative environment with a highly skilled, hardworking talent pool, as well as access to a great university system rich in technology and innovation. Pittsburgh more than fulfills these requirements, and we're excited to break ground on our new research and development center and expand into another region in the United States."

Pennsylvania has offered the company $1.8 million from the Department of Community and Economic Development. That includes a $1 million opportunity grant, $125,000 in job training assistance, and $696,000 in job creation tax credits.

Smith Micro develops and markets mobile software products and services.
