Arbor Networks hires 40-plus, looks to add 20 more

Arbor Networks began a hiring spree of dozens of new software engineers in the last couple of years, and those new workers are filling up a growing office space on the south side of Ann Arbor.

The IT security software firm hired 45 software engineers in 2012 with 40 of those jobs ending up in Ann Arbor. It started this year with 22 jobs openings and has filled a majority of them. It recently opened up 20 more software engineer positions locally.

"We are still experiencing high growth as a company, particularly at our R&D headquarters in Ann Arbor," says Kris Lamb, vice president of engineering for Arbor Networks.

The University of Michigan spin-out specializes in providing network security solutions. It has recently expanded its sales for commercial security solutions, recording rampant growth in North America and a high-degree of interest internationally.

Arbor Networks now employs close to 400 people, including 127 employees in Ann Arbor. To help accommodate this growth streak, the company added 10,000 square feet of office space and 1,200 square feet of lab space to its Ann Arbor facility.

"We have filled it all," Lamb says. "We are about to assume the rest of the State Street office space. There was another 5,000 square feet occupied by our landlord. We will be building out that space this year."
