Carmigo, a new software company, is locating its headquarters in Tupelo. The project will create 50 jobs.
“Mississippi is home to some of the most tech-savvy innovators in the country, like the team at Carmigo,” Governor Tate Reeves said. “The announcement that the company is locating its headquarters in Tupelo, creating 50 good-paying, high-tech jobs, shows others around the country that Mississippi has the ingredients, such as our strong business environment and customizable workforce development programs, to ensure innovators and developers can thrive in our great state. I appreciate the Carmigo team for choosing to create these exciting jobs and grow this new venture in Tupelo.”
Carmigo is an online vehicle marketplace connecting individual sellers with dealers in a one-day auction. The company builds listings for individuals looking to sell a vehicle and then posts them in the marketplace where dealers compete with one another.
“Tupelo is my family’s home. It’s where we live, where our kids go to school, where we go to church. And I’ve seen firsthand how so many young people grow up and leave our great state,” Carmigo Co-founder and CEO Andrew Warmath said. “I’m excited to have an opportunity to partner with Mississippi and battle our brain drain problem by providing an exciting place to work, while Tupelo provides them a great place to live. We have big dreams at Carmigo, and it’s going to take a lot of great minds to execute. We are excited to make a difference in our community by hiring Mississippi-based software developers and operations employees to scale beyond our state.”
