INDIANAPOLIS (May 1, 2014) – A homegrown tech firm plans to expand its Indianapolis headquarters, adding up to 430 new jobs over the next two years.

Interactive Intelligence, a company specializing in business communications software and services, announced the expansion Thursday afternoon. Gov. Mike Pence and Mayor Greg Ballard joined company officials for the announcement.

Interactive Intelligence is in negotiations to add a 112,000-square-foot office building at its northwest side campus for $28 million. The company already has nearly 300,000 square feet of space in four buildings there. Construction on the new building would start this summer. It would open in late 2015.

Interactive Intelligence employs more than 1,000 workers across the state and more than 1,900 globally. The company hired more than 170 new employees in Indiana last year and plans to add more than 300 new jobs by the end of 2014 in software development and testing, support, services, marketing and various general administration areas.

The Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered the company up to $8.3 million in conditional tax credits and up to $300,000 in training grants based on its job creation plans. Indianapolis will consider additional tax abatement.
