When we last spoke with Liquid Web
in March of last year, they had marked a milestone of doubling their staff. Growth appears to be on their permanent agenda, as evidenced by the addition of nearly 100 employees in the past 12 months.
"We're continuing to average about 10 new hires per month," says Public Relations Specialist, Cale Sauter. Liquid Web hopes to continue at that rate to accommodate their rapidly expanding services and data centers.
Sauter draws attention to a recent Pingdom study
, which investigated the hosting locations of the world's one million most popular websites. The study revealed that Lansing hosted the 13th
most of any city in the world, which puts the city squarely in the company of formidable world tech leaders. "These results illustrate the continued development of Lansing as a tech hub, which we feel has been significantly aided by Liquid Web's meteoric growth," he says.
Recently expanding their services to Phoenix, Liquid Web has their sights set on international centers and additional centers throughout the US to remain close to their ever-growing customer base. That's not to slight Lansing, Sauter notes. On the contrary; "Having bright and talented individuals locally to support us has been crucial in providing the base on which we're able to grow."
