Branding Brand, a mobile-commerce platform used by over 200 retailers, today received a 2013 Inc. Hire Power Award, recognizing private businesses that have generated the most jobs in the past three years. The award comes just weeks after Branding Brand was named a Top Workplace by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
To determine company rankings, Inc. magazine reviewed job growth data from January 1, 2012 to June 30, 2013. During that time, Branding Brand generated 86 jobs, making it the fourth largest private business job creator in Pennsylvania. The company ranks 15th among top private business job creators in the US software industry.
Since June 30th 2013, Branding Brand has hired an additional 44 employees. The company is currently looking to fill 50 new openings, including software engineers, iOS and Android developers, project managers, account managers, and quality assurance testers (all listed at brandingbrand.com/jobs).
"For the second year in a row, we are pleased to recognize the employers who are putting Americans back to work for a second time," says Eric Schurenberg, Editor-in-Chief of Inc. "The Hire Power Awards are the only awards that single out job creators. We think it's fitting to pay tribute to company founders not just for their business prowess but also for their immense contribution to the welfare of U.S. workers and the vitality of the U.S. economy."
