This is the second announcement of its kind from Rural Sourcing in less than two months. The center will create 130 software development jobs for the city and state.
"Fort Wayne was a natural selection for us given the priority Governor Holcomb has placed on a '21st Century skilled and ready workforce,' indicating the states commitment to developing and attaining the skill set that we require," said Monty Hamilton, CEO of Rural Sourcing. "Our exponential growth is due to increasing client demand to provide onshore, domestic technology solutions as organizations shift towards digital and cloud solutions."

Governor Suzanne Crouch. "As the Hoosier economy continues to diversify, we're seeing unprecedented advancements as companies across all industries develop and apply new technologies and innovations, ensuring that Rural Sourcing will have access to the skilled workforce it needs to grow. We are thrilled to add Rural Sourcing to our growing tech sector and look forward to the company's partnership as we take northeast Indiana to the next level."
Rural Sourcing typically invests an average of $35 million over the course of five years into the city where its software development center is located. As a conscientious corporate citizen, it additionally supports STEM programs, coding camps and local schools through mentorships and volunteer time. "Our goal is to be a catalyst for all types of technology initiatives and investments, especially those that seek to broaden the diversity of the workforce. We are excited to begin working with Fort Wayne organizations to support and give back to the community," said Hamilton.
