ATLANTA, September 28, 2015 – Rural Sourcing, a leading domestic IT sourcing company focused on cost-effective onshore software development and support, announced today the opening of its fourth Software Development Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico. With the addition of this center, Rural Sourcing will be adding 125 new jobs to the local economy.
“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.”
Rural Sourcing’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.

Furthermore, by having development centers in the U.S., Rural Sourcing’s clients benefit from common language, culture alignment and time zone compatibility.

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 announcement was made on Sept. 28, 2015, by Gov. Susana Martinez, Mayor Richard J. Berry, New Mexico Economic Development Department Cabinet Secretary, Jon Barela, RSI Chief Executive Officer Monty Hamilton, the Albuquerque Economic Development Inc. and the New Mexico Partnership.
The Atlanta-based company chose Albuquerque due to its talented workforce, high quality of life and low cost of living.

Berry. “In Albuquerque, Rural Sourcing will find a supportive, cooperative business environment and an amazing, well trained talent pool.”
