Nexient To Locate Product Development Center in Columbus, Ohio
“JobsOhio is attracting more cutting-edge companies to our state, and we look forward to working with Nexient as it brings 200 new, high-tech jobs to Ohio,” said Ohio Governor Mike DeWine.
According to Columbus 2020, Nexient is creating its Columbus Product Development Center to help meet demand for its software “teams on tap.” The Silicon Valley-headquartered company has placed a major bet on America’s heartland, with the majority of its engineers, designers, and product managers based in Midwestern cities like Ann Arbor, Michigan, and Kokomo, Indiana.
“Nexient is growing fast, so we have been looking for an additional talent market to accelerate that pace,” said Nexient CEO Mark Orttung. “Finding a place with the right combination of talent, quality of life, affordability and growth opportunities is essential to our success, and we believe we’ve found them all in the Columbus Region.” “We’ve also been delighted with the support from JobsOhio, which will partner with us in recruiting tech managers, developers and quality engineers to complement the Salesforce application development practice we’ve been growing in the Region,” added Orttung.
“Nexient’s investment demonstrates Ohio’s ability to attract and serve growing, innovative companies,” said J.P. Nauseef, JobsOhio President & Chief Investment Officer. “The Columbus Region offers the talent and economic environment needed for tech firms like Nexient to continue to scale and thrive.”
