Information technology company Rural Sourcing Inc. is aggressively hiring 90 technology workers for its new office space in Bricktown, the Rock Island Plow Building.
Tech workers might feel pressure to cluster in cities like San Francisco, Austin, Denver or other places where information technology jobs are in high demand. Rural Sourcing's business model offers serious IT work so locals don't feel the pressure to choose between a job and home, CEO Monty Hamilton said.
"Fundamentally, we believe that everyone in the U.S., regardless of race, gender, socioeconomic background or even geographic location should have the opportunity and the access to a career in technology," Hamilton said at a ribbon-cutting event Wednesday. "Consequently, we believe that no one should ever have to make a trade-off between living in a location that you love and pursuing a vocation that you dream of."
Also on Wednesday, Gov. Kevin Stitt praised Rural Sourcing for a "unique and much-needed business plan."
