Award-winning Privilege Management provider supports growth by hiring exceptional professionals in Boston.

Avecto, the market leader in privilege management software, continues to seek talented individuals to join its rapidly-growing staff in the company's U.S. headquarters. The recruitment effort is a result of Avecto's recent momentum, as the company exceeded growth projections for its 2013 fiscal year with an organic increase in sales of 92 percent before being named as one of the ten fastest growing software providers in EMEA in the prestigious Deloitte Fast 500 list.

Having grown its global employee base by 55 percent over the past year, Avecto aims to continue this trend for the 2014 fiscal year with an objective to double its U.S. sales and professional services operations. To facilitate the company's continued growth, Avecto has just completed a relocation of its U.S. headquarters to the prestigious Cambridge district of Boston, allowing the company to leverage recruitment opportunity from the exceptional academic institutions in the area.

A variety of new roles to be based from the new office include positions in Account management and Enterprise Sales, Professional Services for pre and post sales roles.

Avecto is dedicated to creating and sustaining a collaborative environment of talented, hard-working employees who are passionate about providing innovative security solutions for customers. As part of the recruitment program, the company encourages a sense of unity and camaraderie with its employee-referral program and is developing partnerships with the very best Boston universities to implement a graduate scheme with structured career progression plan for local graduate recruits and interns.

"Following last year's incredible results, we have challenged ourselves with an ambitious revenue target for FY14 so I am delighted that we are on track to exceed this with some global brands joining our customer base and a host of global awards for our technology," said Paul Kenyon, co-founder and EVP of Global Sales at Avecto.

"For Avecto to achieve our 2014 objectives we know that our people will make all the difference. In order to recruit the very best and keep them, we understand the value of providing an exceptional corporate culture with the ideal work-life balance. Our new, Boston office reflects our position as an innovative software company, with its modern design, onsite gym and chill out zones."
