Jeffrey Citron, when I had a chance to catch up with him at the Web 2.0 has said that the growth at Vonage was so fast, that he was having a hard time hiring enough people. He pointed out that AT&T was firing people, and he was hiring. (Meow!) Now the company has put out a news release saying that it will add more than 600 new people by end of Q1 2005.
From Press release: New hires will be used to fill positions in all areas, including but not limited to: customer care, product development, call processing, network engineering, sales and operations. “Vonage is continuing to meet the challenges of growing its workforce to constantly improve the quality of our service,” stated Jeffrey A. Citron, chairman and CEO of Vonage Holdings Corp. “Further, Vonage is bringing telecom growth back to the state of New Jersey after a long absence.”
As a sinde-aside: with so many people, it is starting to resemble like a phone company!
