Carmigo, a new software company, is locating its headquarters in Tupelo. The project will create 50 jobs.
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. Carmigo currently has operations in Northeast Mississippi; Nashville, Tennessee; and Birmingham, Alabama. The company will be hiring software developers and operations employees to continually improve the current user interface.
The Mississippi Development Authority certified Carmigo through the Advantage Jobs Rebate Program, which is available for eligible businesses that create new jobs exceeding the average annual wage of the state or county in which the company locates or expands.
