FORT WAYNE -

An Atlanta-based IT outsourcing services provider has announced plans to establish a location in northeast Indiana. The Indiana Economic Development Corp. says Rural Sourcing plans to invest more than $3 million in its Fort Wayne development center and create up to 130 jobs by the end of 2021. The company, which offers a U.S.-based alternative to offshore outsourcing featuring IT services such as software development and cloud applications, has already begun recruiting for the new jobs. 

The IEDC says Rural Sourcing is working with Greater Fort Wayne Inc. to find a temporary office location to begin operations as soon as possible. However, the company continues to evaluate long-term options as well.

"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 state's commitment to developing and attaining the skill set that we require," said Monty Hamilton, chief executive officer 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." 

The Fort Wayne location will be the company's sixth development center in the country and its first in the Midwest. Rural Sourcing is currently hiring for web, app and database developers, cybersecurity specialists, business analysts, and project managers, among other positions.

The IEDC has offered Rural Sourcing up to $2.25 million in conditional tax credits, which the company will not be eligible to claim until Hoosiers are hired for the new jobs. The city of Fort Wayne will consider additional tax incentives and Northeast Indiana Works plans to provide additional hiring and training assistance.
