Falkon Technologies, a custom software development company, along with its new startup company, Load Right LLC, is expanding its headquarters in McKinney. With the expansion, Falkon will create 20 new jobs over the next three years and retain its current 20 employees, due in part to a grant from the McKinney Economic Development Corp.’s Innovation Fund, according to a news release.

These new jobs will mostly be focused on software development, and the average salary will be $85,000 among the 40 employees.


"McKinney has been a great place for us to grow our business since we moved here in 2019," Falkon Technologies CEO Riley Fowle said in the release. "Now to be expanding our team to build out our new entity is exactly what we've wanted to do, and we look forward to scaling the business and continuing to bring tech jobs to McKinney.”

The company’s physical headquarters at 2150 S. Central Expressway, Ste, 190, will be expanded with another 3,000 square feet. Falkon Technologies was founded by Fowle in 1998 and has completed more than 3,000 projects for 250 clients and has written over 3.8 million lines of code, per the release. Previous jobs include building web apps, mobile apps and custom APIs for business-to-business integrations.

"Falkon has an incredible track record and clientele, and we're happy to help them scale in McKinney," said Danny Chavez, senior vice president at the MEDC, in the release. “It's been incredible to see the positive response to the Innovation Fund throughout the pandemic and that continuing as things are starting to open up again.” 469-854-3600. www.falkon.net
