New Business Bringing 100 Tech Jobs to Mobile

Posted: Updated:
With an applause from Mobile city and county leaders, Rural solutions, Inc. (RSI) announces it coming to Mobile and bringing over 100 job opportunities with it.

"We think there's a huge somewhat untapped technology pool here in South Alabama that we can help stir up," said Monty Hamilton.

Hamilton is the company's CEO. He says Mobile's low cost of living and high quality of life are factors he considered in choosing the Port City.

"A lot of what we do is help companies with outsourcing some of their technology support or thinking about outsourcing some of that technology support. So we can go in and take over their existing systems. We can help them enhance those existing systems, and all our work is done remotely," said Hamilton.

"This is really exciting because it brings a business to town that we don't have. Something doing exactly like what they are doing," said Mayor Sandy Stimpson.

The mayor says Mobile was chosen over 7 other cities, with the city putting up 150 thousand dollars in incentive money. The county put up 100 thousand dollars and the state, 300 thousand dollars. The city and county will approve the money next week.

 RSI will temporarily lease a building on the corner of South Hamilton Street and Civic Center Drive. Over a dozen positions are now available online, with an average salary of 50 thousand dollars.

"We are looking to hire software developers, dot net java, SAP. We are also looking for QA analyst, project managers, so different roles in the software space. The roles that we have open now will certainly continue to grow as our clients' demands increase," said Ingrid Miller, VP of Client services.

The company says its goal is to start interviews in two weeks.
