MISSOULA – An Israeli company is adding 100 new jobs to the Missoula tech sector in the next couple of years, Gov. Steve Bullock announced Monday in a statement.
“I’m thrilled 4Cast has chosen Missoula as a place to grow their business…a testament to the community’s cultivation of a high-tech industry that results in good-paying jobs,” Bullock said.
The new Missoula branch of the company will develop software simulations for decision making support for healthcare organizations.
The new positions are largely in software engineering and developers as well as salespeople, according to Missoula Economic Partnership Economic Development Director Jenni Graff.
She says the technology is used by companies to predict how a quality control decision might turn out. Graff added that the University of Montana was a large draw for the company and that they plan to begin with filling positions locally if possible.
“Because we have two health care systems here that are connected to a much larger national network, I think that was also very appealing to them,” Graff said.
“Technology is increasingly defining the Missoula economy, and 4Cast will be a welcome addition to our highly-connected, innovative and collaborative local business community," added Missoula Economic Partnership Interim Director Jeff Fee.
The initial positions will be advertised this June.
