Ballywho Interactive, an internet marketing company in Wesley Chapel, offers business solutions for social media management, web content and other needs. The company is currently hiring writers, a community manager, a designer and a web developer.
"Right now the company has eight full-time employees," says Kristin Masters, Ballywho's social media strategist and content manager. "We're looking to double that in the next six months."
Elissa Nauful Plumley, the company's founder/CEO, wants employees to be happy. "We offer flexible work schedules, which employees really like," she says.
In addition to flexible work schedules, Ballywho
wants employees to feel challenged and satisfied at work. While hard work is valued at this company, it's not all work and no play. Masters shares that the company tries to keep work fun by planning events such as Wii bowling tournaments at the office and impromptu outings.
What does Ballywho look for in a job candidate?
"First and foremost, we're looking for people who are a good "fit' for the company," says Masters. "We have a really unique culture: quirky, tight knit and dynamic. It's important that employees be able to embrace—and effect—change as the company grows. Our team is also really focused on delivering exceptional customer service, so ideal candidates are enthusiastic about that and look for ways to constantly improve what we do and how we do it."
The company just celebrated its one-year anniversary in June 2010.
