Software company expands in Guilford County

Superion, a software company that provides service for non-profits and state governments, is expanding operations and adding jobs at its site in Guilford County.

Over the next three years Superion plans to create 80 full-time jobs, at an average annual salary of $57,829, in High Point. The Guilford County average is $45,602. The company will also invest $3.6 million at the site.

Currently, Superion has 170 employees in High Point. The new jobs will be in software development and customer support.

Among Superion’s customers are law enforcement dispatch operations. The company’s “Freedom” is a phone app that gives police call information “so they can respond to situations better no matter where they happen to be,” said Ryan Kirby, vice president of marketing at Superion.

The One North Carolina Fund awarded Superion a performance-based grant of $160,000 contingent on the company meeting job and economic investment targets.

Kirby said the company would be accepting online applications and working with local schools and holding job fairs to fill the positions.
