INDIANAPOLIS -

Indianapolis-based tech company Kerauno is detailing growth plans in the city. The company, which specializes in communications workflow software, says it will invest more than $5 million to establish its official headquarters in Indy and create up to 112 jobs by 2022. The Indiana Economic Development Corp. says Kerauno plans to move into a new office location, more than doubling its space, within six months.

Kerauno says the expanded space will include state-of-the-art technology design aesthetics, new furniture, various amenities and significant technology investments. The effort aims to support the company's continued efforts to attract top talent.

"Our growth has been tremendous over the past year—we’ve nearly quadrupled our staff in less than 12 months," said Josh Ross, co-founder and chief executive officer of Kerauno, said in a news release. "Formally establishing our global headquarters in Indianapolis just makes sense considering the incredible pool of local talent and the positive business environment supported by both local and state government."

Kerauno has already hired 22 additional full-time employees and expects to create a total of 112 jobs over the next several years. Some of the positions the company is looking to fill include vice president of marketing, chief financial officer, general counsel, senior software engineers, and customer care professionals. The new jobs are expected to offer salaries above the state and county average wages. 

The IEDC has offered Kerauno up to $2.2 million in conditional tax credits, which the company will not be eligible to claim until Hoosier workers are hired. The city of Indianapolis is also supporting the project. 

Kerauno launched in late 2017 as a spin-off of Indianapolis-based Axia Technology Partners.

Editor's Note: A previous version of this story said Kerauno was adding 140 new jobs.
