Rural Sourcing, Inc., a technology company that touts itself as restoring outsourced work to America, announced Tuesday that it will locate to Augusta, creating 100 jobs.

 “Essentially when you get down to it we are in the business of bringing jobs back to the United States,” CEO Monty Hamilton said in a press conference held by the Development Authority of Richmond County, which worked with the state to recruit the company to Augusta.

Atlanta-based Rural Sourcing, Inc. is an arm of Clarkston Consulting, and its employees write code for computers. The company’s work runs the gamut from making applications for iPhones to creating high-level computer systems for clients such as R.J. Reynolds.

The company will be based downtown in Enterprise Mill and has already hired three workers who will start Monday, said Ingrid Miller, the company’s director for operations.

Miller said she hopes to have at least another 10 workers begin by Jan. 1 and for the company to expand to 100 employees within three to five years.

Salary for a new graduate who is hired would likely range between $35,000 and $45,000, not including benefits and bonuses, Hamilton said.

 In a statement, Gov. Sonny Perdue said:

“Georgia’s highly-skilled pipeline of talent for high tech companies will certainly be an asset to the Rural Sourcing Augusta development center. The company’s expansion will boost the local economy and provide job opportunities for Augusta-area residents.”
