The Missouri Department of Economic Development announced in a press release Monday that RareWire is moving across State Line Road from Prairie Village, Kan. to Kansas City, Mo. and has plans to create 40 new jobs over the next five years.
Rarewire, a software company with a platform designed to help web developers create native applications for mobile devices, will make its new home at 1627 Main St. in Kansas City’s Crossroads District. The state of Missouri helped lure Rarewire east with an incentive package that includes tax credits from the Missouri Quality Jobs program.
“The Kansas City area has a lot to offer to companies like ours, with tremendous support and excitement around entrepreneurship,” Kirk Hasenzahl, the president of RareWire, said in a release. “We’re looking forward to the opportunity to contribute to Kansas City’s entrepreneurial spirit as we continue to grow RareWire.”
RareWire also builds apps for such high-profile clients as The Atlantic and Ebony magazines, CA Technologies, the United States Military Academy, United States Naval Academy and TriVascular, among others. Stay tuned to Silicon Prairie News for a closer look at RareWire in the coming weeks.
