As the global economy slowly begins to improve, California-based Tibco Software Incorporated has announced plans to hire 500 people in the U.S. this year.
Vivek Ranadive, Tibco’s chief executive officer, told Bloomberg News that his business-software company is looking to recruit workers from the nation’s top colleges including the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Stanford.
“We are hiring quite rapidly now, all in sales and service. It’s a good time to hire. Some big banks aren’t hiring, so there isn’t as much competition for workers from Wall Street,” Ranadive added. “We are very optimistic about 2012, even in Europe. I think it’s like a well-kept secret that U.S. is doing better.”
Meanwhile, a new report has found that technology professionals are now earning some of their largest annual salaries since 2008.

The coming of the digital age has led to the creation of many new businesses, and as these businesses grow, they need to hire new workers.
Such is the case with Verdasys Inc., an information security firm based in Waltham, Massachusetts. According to the Boston Business Journal, the company recently acquired funding which will be used to bring in new workers.
Verdasys received $15 million in investment from GE Asset Management, reports the news source.
Company CEO Jim Ricotta said that that money would largely be used to hire salespeople and engineers to help expand the business of the firm, which was founded in 2002.
Ricotta said that last year, the company reached profitability on just under $30 million in revenue. It is hoping that this new investment, which the news provider reports brings the total amount of the funds raised by the company to $45 million, will help it expand its footprint in the information security industry overseas.
