LUXEMBOURG, May 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- AltisourceTM (Nasdaq:ASPS), a global provider of high-value, technology-enabled services, today announced it is opening Altisource™ Labs in Boston, immediately bringing 100 technology jobs and strengthening the position of Boston's Innovation District as one of the world's top technology centers. Altisource evaluated various global sites for growing its software talent base before choosing Boston. Boston offers a deep pool of enterprise software talent, executive leadership for high-growth technology markets and a top-tier university system to supply the future pipeline of talented professionals needed to build a world class innovation lab.

"Altisource Labs will give talented professionals the opportunity to work on some of the industry's most interesting challenges in an environment that combines the excitement and equity participation of a traditional start-up with the stability, track record and career mobility of a thriving, global public company."
