December 6 2012 ArchivesThis morning, we were proud to announce that we had been listed on the inaugural Inc. Hire Power awards which recognize companies that have a significant impact on North American job growth. We were the No. 4 company in Georgia, and the No. 8 company in telecommunications of all companies with notable job growth over the last three years. Because our customer base keeps expanding at an incredible rate, we’re always looking to hire top talent in all fields to continue our commitment to exemplary service and support. Careers To view our current job openings, visit our Careers page or follow us on our Twitter account as we often announce the latest positions. As our page states, we’re a leading-edge company and we handle the majority of our operations on site. This allows us to create an exciting and professionally challenging environment for our employees. By working as a part of a team to build the best hosted phone system for small business, our employees have the opportunity to truly innovate and stay excited about their field. And even though we’ve quickly grown from being a start-up telecommunications company to the preferred phone service provider for nearly 20,000 account holders, we haven’t lost our edge. Company Culture Even with over 200 employees (we’ve grown even more since the Inc. data was submitted), it’s surprisingly easy to stay in touch with fellow co-workers from different departments. Since all of our support professionals are U.S.-based, everyone from Vocalocity works together in the same building in midtown Atlanta. From company parties to charitable fundraisers, or just meeting up for a game of foosball or air hockey in the breakroom, there’s a real sense of collaboration and community at the office. Anastasia says, “My favorite part about working here is the people. It’s a very warm and welcoming environment, and it’s very positive. Everyone gets along and it’s a good place to come to work every day.” Our foosball table may have the team colors of the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, but we even the rivalry out by also having a red and black air hockey table in the break-room for all the University of Georgia fans. Gus told us that “One of my favorite parts of working here at Vocalocity is that we’re transforming the way that phone solutions work for businesses. We’re able to sell the solution as an asset to businesses, and I like hearing from customers down the road and hear them say ‘As a result of your product, we need to expand, and I need more phones.’ It’s great to see that return on investment from a product that you help to sell. I’m always eager to address client concerns, and I’m able to really help them find a solution that works best for them.” Working in Midtown Atlanta Another thing we like about coming to the office is our proximity to everything. Being located in a professional high-rise means that we’re surrounded by some of the most innovative businesses in the city. It’s fun to be able to walk to lunch and meet up with friends or colleagues from other offices without having to drive everywhere. And being located right off of a major highway allows us to attract top talent from near and far. For Matt, “My favorite part about working in midtown Atlanta is the accessibility to different locations around us. You can walk up to Colony Square to get something to eat or go shopping, and I just think it’s exciting to be down here.” For those employees who have a long commute or just need to take care of things at home a few times a month, we also use our own phone system in-house which means any employee can unplug his or her work phone and just take it home to telecommute. We offer a generous telecommute program which actually won the Clean Air Campaign’s PACE Telelwork Cataylst award in 2011 for our significant reduction in traffic miles and car emissions in Atlanta. Chloe says, “My favorite part of working at Vocalocity is having the flexibility of being able to work from home when you need to.” As we start looking back on 2012, we’re very pleased to note that it has been our most successful year ever. From being listed again on the Inc. 5000 and the Deloitte Tech Fast 500 for being a fast-growing tech company, to earning this Inc. Hire Power award for job creation and employee growth, it’s easy to see why Vocalocity is a great place to work. Interested in joining the team?
