While Georgia’s and the United States’ unemployment rate remains stubbornly high, one company, Marietta, Ga.-based eVestment, plans to hire 80 to 100 people during 2014 to help support and propel the company’s growth. eVestment offers a suite of software and cloud-based products that provide data, insight and analysis on investment trends to the institutional investment community.
eVestment currently employs just over 200 people, primarily in its north Atlanta headquarters office, but also in offices in New York City; Hong Kong; London; and Sydney, Australia. The addition of these new employees will increase the company’s employee count by about 50%. About 80% of the positions will be based in eVestment’s north Atlanta headquarters.
“As institutional investors, consultants and investment managers look to get an edge in this fast-moving market, the hunger for the data, analytics and insight eVestment provides has grown exponentially,” said eVestment Founder and CEO Jim Minnick. “We’re looking to add sharp, engaged, top-notch people to our team to help us capture that growth and continue a trajectory that has seen eVestment increase revenue and employee count every year since we were founded in 2000 and appear on the Inc. 500/5000 lists for 7 years running.”
The company is looking to fill positions primarily in sales, client service, product strategy and software development. Technically savvy and creative candidates with a passion for demonstrating excellence in an innovative, team-based environment are encouraged to apply for openings on the company’s website.
eVestment has become well known for its workplace culture and successful growth strategies. The company has placed on several “Best Places to Work Lists.” Benefits and employee-centric practices at the company include unlimited paid time off (PTO); events like an annual business meeting and holiday party where all employees gather in Atlanta, raft-racing outings and fitness challenges; and promoting from within and creating new opportunities to keep employees engaged.
