BlueLine Associates Plans Software Development Office In Baton Rouge, Louisiana
“BlueLine is very excited about expanding our presence to Baton Rouge,” company President Rocky Silvestri said. “The new office will primarily focus on application development, so we plan on hiring local developers, QA engineers, project managers, support agents and supervisors, along with administrator managers. Our applications are contracted by startups and Fortune 500 companies. We visited a number of states, and the mission of the Louisiana Economic Development team, along with the strong sense of community, motivated us to expand in Louisiana.”
Louisiana Economic Development began discussing a potential project with BlueLine in October 2015. To secure the project, the State of Louisiana offered BlueLine a competitive incentive package that includes the comprehensive solutions of LED FastStart®, the top-ranked state workforce development program in the nation. The company also is expected to utilize Louisiana’s Digital Interactive Media and Software Development Incentive, as well as the Quality Jobs Program.
Governor Bobby Jindal said, “BlueLine Associates’ new software development office in Baton Rouge is a great addition to Louisiana’s ever-growing digital media and software development sector. Not only will BlueLine find a large pool of qualified talent here, the company will join the list of major tech projects that have invested in Louisiana, including EA, CGI, IBM, Gameloft, GE and many others. Since 2008, we’ve worked tirelessly to improve Louisiana’s business climate and competitiveness, and this new investment by BlueLine Associates is a testament to our hard work.”
“BlueLine Associates adds a new team to the growing base of software companies in the Capital Region, and we congratulate them on their success as they move forward to open their fourth U.S. location,” said President/CEO Adam Knapp of the Baton Rouge Area Chamber. “We are pleased to see they are taking advantage of one of our best regional assets, the Louisiana Technology Park. By establishing this office, they will have access to a collaborative work environment and will contribute to our innovation economy.”
