WebVisible In Big Hiring Push In Los Angeles With New Office

Irvine-based WebVisible, which helps small businesses place online advertising, said this morning it is in a big hiring push, and is immediately looking to hire over 75 employees across sales, IT, software engineering, and product design positions. According to the firm, it is also opening a new office in Playa Vista in the Electronic Arts building, and has a significant number of positions it is hoping to fill at the location. The firm said that it is expecting to more than double its employee base this year, and is running a job fair at the organization to screen applications. The firm has been in a big hiring push this year, having run a similar job fair at its Irvine headquarters in April. The firm said it received more than 600 applications from that job fair. It looks to be a big week for hiring for technology firms in Los Angeles; just yesterday, El Segundo-based iRise said it was aggressively recruiting for eleven new positions at the firm, and was offering external referral rewards of up to $5,000 to find Java Architects and others for the firm.
