SWsoft plans to hire about 15 to 20 people in the next several months. Kurt Daniel, director of marketing, talked with The Post's Andrea Caumont.
What does your company do?
We create software that does server virtualization and automation. Our software enables large business computers that conduct business for enterprises and service providers to do this more efficiently in a more automated fashion. We work mainly with commercial and educational organizations and state and local government customers. We're starting to work with the federal government.
What do you think your employees would say are the best reasons for working at your company?
The very fast growth, the very talented employees and the ability to be at a leading software company in the Washington area. There aren't that many software companies here, compared with San Francisco and Boston.
Who owns your company?
We're private. We're owned by our employees and by our chief executive.
What sense of stability can your company offer job candidates?
We've never had layoffs, and we've been around for seven years so we lived through the hardest economic times without layoffs. We grow very intelligently. We're not a business that's unprofitable. Both of the markets we're in right now are experiencing real growth so we have good markets and a good competitive position. We anticipate a lot of stability.
What are the demographics of your company?
Company-wide, we're 28 percent female and 16 percent minority. There are two females and no minorities on our five-person senior management team.
What positions do you have available, and what level of expertise do you want?
We're looking for 10 people in sales, five or more in marketing, two in sales engineering and two in business development. We're looking for people at all levels. People who are smart and have a lot of potential and ideally have some software and high-tech experience.
