“BullStreet continues to thrive,” said Mayor Steve Benjamin. “We’re thrilled to welcome the Capgemini expansion to The BullStreet District. Their creation of 200 new jobs in application and cloud development in the quickly-developing First Base Building confirms that the Spirit Communications Park complex isn’t just a ballpark but a true live, work, play destination for a new generation of talented and educated IT leaders.”

This is the largest announcement of technology jobs in Columbia in the last decade and it was made possible by partnership with Governor McMaster, the S.C. Department of Commerce, the City of Columbia and the developer of The BullStreet District,” said Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt. “These jobs will pay 50 percent more than the average hourly earnings in Columbia, and are a testament to the type of workforce we have in South Carolina.”

Capgemini is attracting the next generation of talent to Columbia. Drawing on the local area schools and beyond, the company is providing the training and development needed to support their clients’ digital transformation.
