At a press conference today with Nashville Mayor Karl Dean and the
Chamber of Commerce, ServiceSource announced plans to expand its
Nashville sales center and create 100 full-time permanent jobs to
support its rapidly growing customer base. With now over 800 local
employees, ServiceSource is the third largest technology employer in the
greater Nashville area. The Nashville sales center also supports many
major Silicon Valley-based customers, providing a unique high-tech
linkage with the San Francisco Bay Area.
“For more than six years, ServiceSource has been a strong partner with
Nashville, providing both employment opportunities and philanthropic
support to the local community,” said Nashville Mayor Karl Dean. “Their
presence here has added energy to our already vibrant downtown, and
their plans for 100 new jobs speak to the economic vitality of our city.
In working with some of the biggest technology companies in the world,
ServiceSource’s local success is a testament to Nashville’s emerging
ServiceSource first opened an office in Nashville in 2008 with 20
employees and rapidly expanded its presence in 2012 as part of Governor
Bill Haslam's jobs drive. With a fast growing business, the company’s
local headcount has expanded over the past three years from 500
employees to over 800. Today, the Nashville office represents
ServiceSource’s largest sales center, and occupies eight floors across
120,685 square feet in the ServiceSource tower, which has become a
distinctive fixture on the Nashville skyline.
“Nashville is an emerging technology hub in the United States,” said
Grant Clarke, Vice President of Selling Services at ServiceSource.
“Nashville’s vibrant culture and entrepreneurial spirit are key
ingredients to building a dynamic workforce. Without the continued
support from the city of Nashville, we could not have grown and scaled
in such a short period of time to meet the needs of our customers.”
With the infusion of 100 new employees, ServiceSource plans to hire
sales representatives and other support staff that manage service
contract and subscription renewals for over 40 hardware, software, SaaS,
and healthcare technology companies. Current customers supported from
the Nashville sales center include Adobe, Affymetrix, Beckman Coulter,
Cardiac Science, Gerber, Google and Siemens. As Nashville emerges as a
new hub of technology innovation in the United States, ServiceSource
provides a unique connection with many of these prominent tech brands
based in Silicon Valley and the San Francisco Bay Area.

See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time.
