Open source enterprise content management company, Jentla, has detailed its recent expansion plans with 20 full time staff hires across its global operations in the last quarter.
The Australian company has grown from just 20 to 41 staff members around the world, with the new hires to be based in development roles in Australia, the U.S, India and Romania.
The new recruits will administer Jentla’s new “rapid response desk” which provides 24 hour customer and technical support to customers.
Two senior Australian-based roles, project manager and web manager, have been filled by Anthony Fisher and Markita Parybok respectively. They will be focusing on technical development for all Jentla projects, including e-commerce, video and content management software, as well as customer implementations and product development.
Jentla chief executive, Damian Hickey, said the company’s growth in a “financially challenging” year showed the technology projects that organisations had prioritised, and where end users see value from online products.
“It also shows how open-source technology has come of age,” Hickey said.
In 2011, the company is looking to focus on enterprise-class solutions, based on open source Joomla and has committed two full time developers to advance the Joomla core.
