MACo's Platinum Corporate Partner
World Wide Technology (WWT)
is has set a goal of hiring an astounding 1,500 net new employees in 2020, targeting four key, fast-growing areas for WWT.
“The largest growth area is application development for us. Then cloud -- which would be cloud developers, cloud architects, cloud strategist – that’s incredibly in-demand and a fast-growing area of business for us,” said CEO Jim Kavanaugh, who co-founded WWT in 1990.
“We’re also looking at hiring full-time data scientists domestically and looking at some partnerships globally because there’s just a demand, and I would say a lack of supply, in some of these categories,” he said. “The other fourth area that is a big growth opportunity is security.”
Additionally, WWT is thinking outside the box when it comes to developing new talent. “We’re trying to put some development programs in place to bring up to speed and develop some of the younger, entry level talent that have the capacity to play in some of these different places,” he said.
Kavanaugh said WWT is going on a services-led tear right now as the company is helping customers more than ever succeed in their digital transformation strategies.
“For 2020, it’s about aggressively moving towards a services-led organization that is highly focused on driving digital transformation for our customers,” said Kavanaugh. “The fastest growth we’re seeing in services would be around application development, cloud and security. But also traditional infrastructure like core networking, compute, storage, architecture, voice, video, collaboration -- those areas are also growing.”
