Switchback hires six people in Ann Arbor

Last time we checked in with Switchback, the newly formed start-up's two partners were figuring out their business plan and fighting to gain footing in the competitive world of Ann Arbor start-ups. My how times have changed.

The almost-2-year-old firm now employs 11 people, an intern and is looking to hire. The staff is expected to double within the next year. The software-development firm, started by Mike Monan and Stephen Colson, continues to bring new products to the market, bad economy or no.

"There are still deals to be done and relationships to be made," Colson says.

Switchback's technology helps businesses better manage their websites without all of the hassle of IT departments or in-house experts. It utilizes a Drupal programming platform, since both Monan and Colson met at a local Drupal Users Group meeting.

"There is a lot of demand for us," Colson says. "People are realizing that their websites need to work for them."
