High Street Partners plans to hire up to 60 new employees through 2012 after raising $6.3 million in new financing from investors including Baird Venture Partners, Sigma Partners and Gold Hill Capital. The Annapolis, Md.-based company currently has 135 employees.
High Street makes enterprise software tools that help companies manage their business operations overseas. Tax, accounting and regulatory compliance guidelines can vary widely country to country, so High Street's software aims to make switching between, say, Hong Kong and London as easy as clicking a new tab. High Street was founded in 2003.
Of the company's new hires, up to 15 will be in engineering, with the rest of the hires in sales, marketing, finance, accounting and administration. Research and development roles will be based near Boston, and all other roles will be spread out across the company's offices in London, San Jose, Calif., and Annapolis.
New hires should be customer service-oriented and have experience working with international clients, said president and founder Larry Harding.
Employees can stand out in the interview process, he said, by "not just saying that the 'customer is king,' but also demonstrating when we meet them what that tangibly means."
