CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Technology company Sparksoft Corporation announced Wednesday plans to establish an office in West Virginia.

The company, which provides technology services regarding testing, program and security development, plans to create 30 new jobs in Fairmont in addition to transferring up to five employees from its existing offices. Sparksoft will be temporarily using the NASA building in the I-79 Technology Park while a permanent building is being built.

“Expanding into West Virginia has been a goal of Sparksoft’s for some time,” Sparksoft CEO Mike Finkel said in a statement. “This expansion provides us with unique resources to strengthen our teams, services and solutions. We are excited to be part of the community and look forward to growing together.”

According to a statement from the West Virginia Department of Commerce, reasons for the move include West Virginia’s concentration of talented technical resources, affordable real estate and cost of living and proximity to Washington, D.C.

“West Virginia welcomes Sparksoft to our growing technology community,” Gov. Jim Justice said. “The company’s choice to build a new facility and open operations here demonstrates confidence in our state’s dedicated workforce, pro-growth business climate and promising future.”
