XANT Hires 50 New Employees in Single Month
PROVO, Utah – September 17, 2013 – XANT, the leading provider of cloud-based sales acceleration technologies and solutions, is hiring for professional full-time jobs at an unprecedented rate, despite a slow recovery in the U.S. job market. Additionally, employees have incredible opportunity for fast advancement in the high-growth company. The Utah company is part of the emerging “Silicon Slopes” movement that is driving high-tech growth from Park City to Provo. In the past year, the company has grown from 120 full-time employees to nearly 300 today. It plans to reach approximately 400 by the end of 2013. “Our success and growth is directly tied to our ability to hire great people,” said CEO and founder of XANT, David Elkington. “Additionally, there is a growing demand for our products and services. We provide a cloud-based sales acceleration platform that enables companies to sell more using fewer resources, which is critical in a fluctuating economy.” The company’s hiring trend is unique in the current job market. A recent report by the U.S. Labor Department indicates that many of the jobs being added in the United States are in low-paying sectors such as restaurants and retail. By contrast, recent industry research shows 44,200 net-new positions are being added annually in the inside sales industry. That represents a growth rate that is 300 percent faster than hiring for traditional field sales positions. XANT is hiring senior-level management, engineers, marketing specialists, sales representatives and other professionals. The software company attracts driven, tech-savvy candidates because of its high-energy fast-paced culture, cutting-edge technology and opportunities for advancement. XANT recently brought on former Citrix global vice president of integrated marketing and strategy as its CMO. “I joined XANT because it is at the intersection of the fastest growing areas of high-tech – where marketing meets sales and where sales meets science,” stated Mick Hollison, CMO of XANT. “Our data scientists are delivering breakthrough innovation in predictive analytics and data visualization that are changing the very nature of sales. I couldn’t be more excited about joining the “Silicon Slopes” movement and the great team at XANT.” Employees at XANT are frequently promoted in as little as six months and encouraged to take on more responsibilities. The company is also continually investing in its employees, offering one of the most comprehensive training programs in the industry and recently increasing pay and employee benefits. “We have learned that if we grow the people, they will grow the company. Generals are made during times of war, and we are presenting battlefield promotions every day,” said Ken Krogue, president and founder of XANT. “Our hyper-growth has allowed us to dramatically improve our employee benefits again. We also invest in our employees with stock options, so every employee is an owner.” XANT also encourages employee referrals because driven people usually associate with other driven people. As an example, employees were recently offered a $1,000 bonus for every new business development representative they referred who decided to join the company.
