Web Firm Adds Jobs In Tampa, Seeks Tech Experts

Saxotech, a Tampa-based technology company that provides content management systems and hosts websites for large media organizations, is hiring due to a recent expansion.

Saxotech currently employs approximately 50 employees in Tampa, and is looking to add a hosting network and systems engineer, as well as a hosted mediaware center support representative to its roster, says Marketing Manager Robert Payne.

Payne says that if the past couple of years are any indication for what is to come for the company, continued growth will be in its future.

"We have acquired three companies in the past eight years," he says.

Because the company is based on web technology, potential employees looking to join Saxotech must have strong technical expertise, as well as people skills.

"Teamwork is very important," Payne says. "We're looking for somebody who can take ownership of a project, has customer focus and operational excellence."

Saxotech employees enjoy benefits such as telecommuting, tuition reimbursement and resources for ongoing training, in addition to traditional perks such as full medical and dental insurance.

How does a company that works with large media organizations grow in this struggling economy? Payne attributes the company's success to its ability to keep up with technology.

"Since our inception we have always been focused on digital initiatives," Payne says. "We have been able to help newspapers get their content online. At the end of the day people are consuming more news, not less, it's just through different channels."

Saxotech has been in business since 1983, moving its headquarters from  Denmark to Washington D.C. and now Tampa. Company officials chose Tampa, Payne says, because of its warm climate, culture and convenient airport.
