“In addition to talent needed to support Elyxor’s rapid growth, Central Arkansas also provides access to entrepreneurial entities such as the Arkansas Venture Center and the Innovation Hub. We appreciate the company’s significant investment in the citizens of our great state.” - Governor Asa Hutchinson.
Elyxor Inc., a team of software engineering specialists, announced they are expanding their presence in North Little Rock. The company plans to hire 45 new employees in an effort to support clients across the world. Elyxor recently moved into new office space in North Little Rock’s Argenta District. The addition of 45 new employees will take total employment at the North Little Rock office from four people to 49 people.
Mark Carleo, Managing Partner, stated, “As Elyxor has grown as a firm, we have been seeking a location where we can build a strong relationship with the local business community and find great talent. We hired our first engineer in Little Rock in 2014, and we have been growing ever since.”
Founded in 2010 in Boston, Elyxor provides access to experienced strategy and software experts who are literate in emerging technologies, turning strategies into real products, and establishing processes to link the value chain from concept to production. The company has enabled clients in FinTech, Healthcare, eCommerce, Industrial Products, and Supply Chain.
“Elyxor could have chosen any state for this expansion and decided Arkansas has a talented workforce to meet the needs of these high-tech positions,” said Governor Asa Hutchinson. “In addition to talent needed to support Elyxor’s rapid growth, Central Arkansas also provides access to entrepreneurial entities such as the Arkansas Venture Center and the Innovation Hub. We appreciate the company’s significant investment in the citizens of our great state.”
Elyxor’s executive team has worked together, or in part, for most of the past 20 years. The partners, who are all software and systems engineers, have experience building full-stack, production-deployed software systems. During their time together, they have constructed multiple successful software firms.
Rob Lentz, local Little Rock Partner and Chief Strategy Officer, shared, “We feel Elyxor is offering our employees an opportunity to work with highly innovative clients while using cool and modern technologies. Our team supports clients locally in Central Arkansas and as far away as the European Union and South America. We chose Argenta to provide a fun place to work in the midst of our busy project schedule.”
“Argenta is living up to its reputation as a fun place to work,” said North Little Rock Mayor Joe A. Smith. “We strive to provide the quality of life that will attract the professional workforce that is critical to a thriving downtown. Elyxor is exactly the type of company North Little Rock hopes to attract: innovative, modern, cool, and growing. We are thankful this international company chose our downtown, and look forward to supporting their workforce and vision for many years to come.”
