Filnet Inc. plans to hire about six people in the next three months. Chris Baltazar, president and chief executive, talked with The Post's Andrea Caumont.
QWhat does your company do?
AWe're in the business of creating software and interactive Web sites for the government, nonprofits, educational institutions and businesses. We can connect constituents to their government services online. For education we enable teachers and administrators everywhere to engage students through online tools and we provide access to materials that can help students and teachers. For nonprofits we provide primarily marketing services and membership administration.
What do you think your employees would say are the best reasons for working at your company?
Our CTO [chief technology officer] might say it's the "pizza Wednesday" we have every other Wednesday. I think it's the entrepreneurial feel of the company. It's been a small company since 1996 when it was started. There's a real good sense of ownership here. We've recently introduced an employee assistance program. Employees use this service as a life balance aid for personal or work issues.
Who owns your company?
What sense of stability can your company offer job candidates?
Since 1996 we've grown our revenue and the company size consistently between 5 and 10 percent. I think that's pretty stable for a small company.
What are the demographics of your company?
Company-wide we're 18 percent female and 54 percent minority. On the five-person senior-management team we're 20 percent female and 60 percent minority.
What positions do you have available, and what level of expertise do you want?
We're looking for two Web designers, one with mid-level and one with senior-level experience. We're also hiring two mid-level software developers, one mid- to senior-level Web project manager and one intern.
