During just the past 60 days, nine Indiana tech companies and tech-enabled companies have announced plans to invest more than $71 million in this state and create up to 1,546 new computer-related jobs.
The largest deal in terms of the number of jobs is from Appirio, the cloud services provider that has been growing in Indy since establishing an office here in 2012. In August, the fast-growing company announced that it will relocate its headquarters to The Circle City and create up to 577 new jobs. The other eight announcements include new tech jobs ranging from 25 to 250 per company.
In a statement about Appirio’s relocation, Indiana Governor Mike Pence revealed that “more than 50 percent of the state’s economic development efforts during the first half of this year have been in the information technology sector.”
Adding to that good news, jobs in the information technology sector pay more than $75,000 on average, almost double the pay for the average of all jobs in Central Indiana as a whole, according to the Technology Workforce Study.
