QWhat does your company do?
AWe help companies use the Web more effectively in their business. About 30 to 40 percent of our business is with associations. We help them with fulfilling their members' needs. We also do another 30 percent with media companies, and the remaining [part] with general commercial businesses. We help media companies put their applications or marketing or other materials on the Web more effectively, with reduced cost in terms of bandwidth and with improved user experience and better usability in their application. For commercial companies we tend to do a more holistic Web solution, from helping them craft their business goals to deploying and hosting their web applications.
Who owns your company?
Myself and Rand Kramer, the user experience vice president.
What sense of stability can your company offer job candidates?
We've been around for three years now, and we've had 100 percent growth. Stability is not something we've had a lot of concern with because we've been moving so fast. We're more concerned about expansion. Everybody feels secure in that they can grow with the company.
What are the demographics of your company?
On our five-person senior-management team there is one woman and no minorities. Company-wide we're 37 percent both female and minority.
What positions do you have available, and what level of expertise do you want?
We're looking for four Web developers of varying levels of skill, from junior developers with one to three years of experience to senior developers with upwards of eight years of experience. We're really focused on raw knowledge and creative problem solving. We're pretty confident that . . . if we get the right person we can train them pretty rapidly. We also need one information architect or producer with five to 10 years of experience in information architecture and design, and a high level of communication ability.
