As Intela Grows Globally, They Continue to Aggressively Hire Top Talent, Despite the Down Economy

Intela is a leader in global online lead generation and email marketing.

As our business further expands throughout the UK and the European Union, we will continue to create jobs at our Boulder headquarters, which is where our operational group is based.

Intela, a leader in online lead generation and email marketing, continues to grow internationally and hire locally. In a recently released ADP National Employment Report, private employment jobs in the U.S. improved significantly in February as private employers added 217,000 jobs. This brought the total employment level 1.26% above the level seen in February 2010. Expanding on this trend, in 2010, Intela, a privately held company, had a 35% increase in the number of jobs at their Boulder headquarters. Intela has been hiring core positions for their email marketing and online lead generation business, including technology management, software developers, database engineers, IT support positions, account managers, and accounting roles.

Over the past three years, Intela’s revenue has increased 486%, driven by increased business and expansion into new markets. This business development has allowed Intela to continue hiring, while many companies have been forced to lay off employees or freeze hiring, due to flat or decreased revenue gains. According to an associated Reuters article, “high unemployment remains a big hurdle for economic recovery, with companies still reluctant to hire...”

Intela sees the conflicted hiring climate firsthand with job growth in the private sector trending upward while the unemployment rate remains high. Ryan Wilson, Intela Senior Vice President, says, “We are fortunate to be growing and hiring so rapidly and we are acutely aware that high-tech jobs have fared well during the economic downturn.” That being the case, Intela creates an environment where its primarily technology-oriented employees are able to work on the cutting edge technologies that they are interested in, and Intela has recently hired an HR position who will formalize their comprehensive employee acquisition and retention strategy. Intela is focused on hiring the best talent and keeping them long term.

Aware that many in the human resources industry are spending their hours conducting lay-offs and administering exit interviews, John Quarles, Director of Human Resources for Intela, feels fortunate that Intela’s HR team is using their time to post jobs, interview, and conduct new hire orientations. Quarles says that, “employees in Colorado are attracted by the professional sports, culture, arts, and the proximity to outdoor activities. As an employer, Intela is attracted to the quality of Colorado's workforce, the access to local universities, and the high tech entrepreneurial community.”

Jim Mansfield, Intela Founder and CEO, explains that Intela is increasing headcount at home and abroad. In February, Intela had to move their London headquarters to a larger office space after doubling the size of their UK workforce. With increased hiring in Boulder and in London, Mansfield is “thrilled that we continue to grow during the slow economic recovery. As our business further expands throughout the UK and the European Union, we will continue to create jobs at our Boulder headquarters, which is where our operational group is based. It’s great to be part of a company that is thriving and helping our local economy while serving international customers.”
