The Colorado Springs Regional Economic Development Corporation announced on Thursday hundreds of jobs will be coming to Colorado Springs in the coming years.

CodeBaby, an Internet software company, has announced its new U.S. Headquarters will be in Colorado Springs.

The company plans to employ 25 in 2009 and anticipates growing to 500 over the next five years.

"This is the kind of opportunity our young professionals are looking for," said Mike Kazmierski, EDC President and CEO.

CodeBaby is changing the face of the Internet. The company specializes in 3D animation characters, who help you navigate through websites.

CodeBaby characters have been utilized by a number of Fortune 500 companies to enhance the web customer experience. Two Colorado Springs businesses are new customers.

Colorado Springs commercial real estate brokerage, Hoff & Leigh, needed a way to engage with potential clients online. The Colorado Springs Convention and Visitors Bureau wanted a digital spokesperson to aid site visitors.

"Colorado Springs is a great fit for CodeBaby. The Pikes Peak Region has the resources and talent we need to take CodeBaby to the next level," said CEO Patrick Bultema.

Job skills will be applicable to new media, Internet creative jobs, and in particular web programming and customer service.
