When Deque opened an office in Ann Arbor last spring, it was looking for talent and lots of it. The Virginia-based software company now employs 10 people at its 2,400-square-foot office just north of downtown.
"We're growing as a company and we need additional talent on the team," says Tyler Steben, vice president of product marketing for Deque
. "We had a foothold in Ann Arbor and the Detroit/Ann Arbor area is a great place to find talent."
Deque focuses on improving web accessibility for businesses. Its Worldspace Sync Accessibility Suite works to reduce manual intervention and provide flexible reporting, among other things, for companies.
Deque currently has two job openings in the Ann Arbor office, which specializes in software development and marketing. "We can hold up to 25 folks in the office," Steben says. "We will probably add a handful of positions over the next year."
Filling that office might be easier to do than originally thought.
"It (the space) has been fantastic," Steben says. "It's a great space. The office is great for recruiting."
