Galmont Consulting will hire 90 full-time employees in Lexington to test software and plans to form a partnership with University of Kentucky's College of Engineering to hire and train computer science graduates.
The average wage will be $44,000 to $46,000. Hiring should begin this summer.
Galmont's new facility represents a $1.3 million investment, according to Gov. Steve Beshear, who announced the venture Friday. The company will open in a 4,000-square-foot facility at 108 Esplanade downtown.
Galmont, which has its headquarters in Chicago,
has been approved for up to $800,000 in tax incentives through the Kentucky Business Investment program. It provides software engineering and testing for a variety of clients, including many Fortune 500 companies in the insurance, healthcare and financial industries.
