What sense of stability can your company offer job candidates?
We are a financially stable, debt free, diversity-award-winning company. Having been around for as many years as we have, the stability factor comes with that financial position that we've achieved throughout those years. The fact that we have a growth orientation is attractive to new employees because there's opportunity to grow.
What are the demographics of your company?
We're a minority-owned business. Companywide, we are 54 percent minority and 38 percent female. On our six-person senior management team, there is one minority and one female.
What positions do you have available and what level of expertise do you want?
In Washington, we're looking for engineers with experience in enterprise storage and server environments, seasoned federal account executives and inside sales representatives.
