The Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD) announced that Rangle, a Java-based agile software development company, will open a new software development center in Fulton County, creating 30 new jobs.

“We are thrilled to welcome Rangle to Georgia’s thriving tech community,” said GDEcD Commissioner Pat Wilson. “As the industry grows at unprecedented levels, our talent, logistics network and top-ranked business climate continue to support the leading tech and cyber companies looking to locate here in Georgia. Congratulations to our economic development partners for making this exciting announcement possible.”

Based in Ontario, Canada, Rangle employs more than 250 people in Canada and Amsterdam. Born from a tech meetup in 2013, the company has built relationships with talented developers and designers from over 100 organizations ranging from startups to large enterprises.

"Rangle prides itself on a true startup-like partnership approach and one aspect of that is working closely with our clients,” said Nick Van Weerdenburg, CEO of Rangle. “To that end, Rangle's Atlanta office signifies our commitment to support clients locally. Atlanta is a creative and tech talent hub and is a great place to do business. We're proud to participate in the technology community in Atlanta and partner closely with talent and clients in the USA."

Rangle plans to hire 30 full-time employees as they build out this new software development center, initially located in a co-working space in Atlanta.

“Rangle is a valuable addition to our region’s ever-growing roster of international companies and a testament to our strong relationship with Canada,” said Hala Moddelmog, president and CEO of the Metro Atlanta Chamber. “Rangle clearly understands that metro Atlanta’s skilled talent, tech-focused ecosystem and competitive business climate are the right fit as they establish their U.S. presence, and we’re proud to welcome them to the region.”

“We are excited to welcome Rangle to Midtown, one of many international tech firms the City of Atlanta has attracted recently,” said Dr. Eloisa Klementich, president and CEO of Invest Atlanta. “Since 2016, Invest Atlanta has been able to work with several foreign-owned companies that have created 723 jobs, $17 million in capital investment and $310 million in total new economic output. At its new location in Atlanta’s Midtown tech center, Rangle will have access to tech talent and 27 corporate innovation centers as well as a direct transit connection to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. We look forward to supporting Rangle as they grow their client base here.”
