Jacksonville, FLA. – Software jobs are coming to Jacksonville over the next two years.

Gov. Rick Scott announced Wednesday that randrr, a digital platform that helps connect individuals with job opportunities, will be creating up to 200 software developing jobs in Jacksonville by 2018 and adding $9 million in capital investment. The company already employs 15 Floridians and plans to add up to 50 employees by the end of this year.

“randrr chose to establish its new offices in Florida over several other locations across the country, including Silicon Valley and New York, because of our talented workforce and focus on STEM education,” said Scott.

The Jacksonville area ranked fifth for high-wage, science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) jobs with nearly 6,000 online job openings in April. Of the 269,535 online job openings listed in April, nearly 76,000 positions were in STEM-related fields.
