Rural Sourcing Inc. (RSI), a domestic IT sourcing company focused on cost-effective onshore software development and support, will open its fourth Software Development Center in Albuquerque, NM. With the addition of this center, RSI will be adding 125 new jobs to the local economy.
RSI’s mission is to be the onshore alternative for software development and support that might traditionally be sent off shore to countries such as India and China. By opening these technology hubs in low-cost of living, high-quality of life U.S. cities, RSI helps clients lower their Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for IT. Furthermore, by having development centers in the U.S., RSI’s clients benefit from common language, culture alignment and time zone compatibility.
“We’re excited to be a part of a growing Albuquerque technology community, and we hope to be a catalyst for further growth and investment both in jobs and in the digital economy,” said Monty Hamilton, chief executive officer at Rural Sourcing Inc. “We believe Rural Sourcing will flourish, given the city’s availability of skilled workers and outstanding quality of life. Albuquerque is a strategic city for us in that it enables us to better serve our existing West Coast clients, and expand our client base across the western United States.”
The Atlanta-based company chose Albuquerque due to its talented workforce, high quality of life and low cost of living. The permanent location of the center is still being determined.
“Building New Mexico into a high-tech jobs leader is a core piece of continuing to grow and diversify our economy,” said New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez. “We’re proud to welcome Rural Sourcing to New Mexico, and looking forward to their partnership as we keep growing our high-tech sector.”
“We are thrilled that RSI has selected Albuquerque for their newest Development Center. They will be a tremendous addition to our business community,” said Albuquerque Mayor Richard J. Berry. “In Albuquerque, RSI will find a supportive, cooperative business environment and an amazing, well trained talent pool.”
