Iron Bow Expands, Brings 170 New Jobs to Tampa


Our local business community continues to prosper and grow.

Iron Bow Technologies, a technology solutions and services provider, launched its expansion office in Tampa on January 4. The company’s ribbon cutting ceremony underscored its commitment to the flourishing Tampa Bay business community.

Over 100 residents have received positions at Iron Bow in just a few months.

Since October, the company has hired approximately 130 Tampa residents and hopes to fill another 45 positions by March. The expansion in Tampa supports a contract with CareFirst’s Blue Cross Blue Shield Consumer Direct business.

Tampa joins five other offices across the U.S.

“CareFirst selected Iron Bow because of its proven performance in call center and help desk solutions, backed further by its long standing industry reputation as an innovative information technology solutions and services provider to government and commercial enterprises” said Rodney Baylor, Director of Operations, CareFirst Consumer Direct, in a release.

The company is headquartered in Virginia, with other offices in Colorado, Washington, Maryland and Hawaii. The new Tampa facility includes 24,000 square feet of modern office space equipped with high-tech training facilities and the latest in tech infrastructure.

Iron Bow is excited to get involved in the Tampa community.

“The Tampa locale was a logical choice for this operation, offering access to both client service and information technology talent,” said Rene LaVigne, President and CEO of Iron Bow Technologies. “We are looking forward to getting involved in the local community as we have done across the country, and introducing Tampa residents to the great culture we have at Iron Bow.”

Iron Bow’s new office is located at 4502 Woodland Corporate Center, Suite 105.
