AgileThought Holds Grand Opening Ceremony at New Orlando Office
AgileThought Inc., which designs custom software and mobile applications, opened a downtown Orlando office yesterday afternoon in a ceremony attended by Governor Rick Scott. Governor Scott spoke during a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the new 2,585 square-foot office in the CNL II building. He used the opportunity to announce the latest job numbers, which show an overall increase in the number of jobs across the state.
Though Metro Orlando’s jobless rate is up- from 5.6 percent in December to 6 percent in January- the state of Florida has added more than 193,000 jobs over the past 12 months, and state unemployment is 6.1%, well below the national average of 6.7%.
AgileThought, based in Tampa, will create 15 new jobs over the next three years with its expansion to Orlando. The company had revenue of $16.8 million in 2012, and the average wage at AgileThought is $83,000 per year.
This technology job growth in Orlando is mirrored by recent expansions at IZEA and GameSim. IZEA’s $12 million funding is expected to result in the addition of 30- 40 jobs at the company, which specializes in sponsored social media, and gaming and military simulation company GameSim plans to add “nearly a dozen” jobs.
AgileThought was provided with a $180,000 incentive package by the City of Orlando to support the relocation of their office from Chicago.
