IN: HighPoint to Expand Indianapolis Presence
2 Jan, 2019
HighPoint Global, LLC, a leading provider of customer experience and digital solutions for government agencies, announced plans today to expand its Indianapolis operations, creating up to 60 new high-wage jobs by the end of 2021 to support its subsidiary HighPoint Digital.
"Central Indiana continues to strengthen its reputation for cultivating innovation because of companies like HighPoint that are utilizing technology to solve problems and increase efficiencies for customers across the world," said Elaine Bedel, president of the Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC). "With the state's focus on fostering an entrepreneurial environment and skilling up our workforce, I'm confident that Indiana's tech community will continue to grow here, ensuring that Hoosiers are at the heart of a 21st century economy."
HighPoint helps government agencies improve citizen services and digital touchpoints through which citizens interact with government. The combined company provides enterprise-scale information technology services and digital solutions to support government transformation initiatives and end-to-end citizen experience (CX) touchpoints. While headquartered in Indianapolis, the company boasts a large presence in the Washington, D.C. and Baltimore areas to support government clients.
HighPoint has nearly 350 employees, with 111 based in Indianapolis. The company plans to hire instructional designers, project managers, systems administrators, media developers and other Indianapolis positions for its HighPoint Digital subsidiary in the coming months. The company anticipates hiring employees to work in the Indianapolis office as well as from various remote locations in Indiana. Interested applicants can apply here.
“Indianapolis has been a great place to build and grow our business,” said HighPoint CEO Ben Lanius. “Our Indianapolis team is comprised of talented, hard-working people, and we are excited to expand our team to include highly skilled IT professionals looking to apply their tech skills in a way that has a meaningful impact on citizens’ everyday lives.”
"Successful communities are built by engaged, connected citizens," said Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett. "My administration has placed great emphasis on building digital infrastructure that encourages this activity, and we are excited that a member of the Indianapolis tech ecosystem will be helping other communities do the same. We look forward to the continued success of HighPoint."
The Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered HighPoint up to $630,000 in conditional tax credits and up to $100,000 in training grants based on the company’s job creation plans. These incentives are performance-based, meaning until Hoosiers are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives. In addition, the city of Indianapolis offered up to $24,000 in performance-based training grants at the recommendation of Develop Indy, a business unit of the Indy Chamber.
