Software company Volusion envisions much larger workforce in Austin

If you want to work for a company that cultivates a fast-paced, close-knit environment where everybody knows your name and where there aren’t any “corporate egos,” then Volusion Inc. might be the right fit for you.

And it looks as though plenty of people will be able to fit into the software company’s workplace culture, at least through the end of 2011.

Volusion, which maintains dual headquarters in Austin and Simi Valley, Calif., is on track to grow its companywide headcount by more than 100 this year and more than 100 next year. Company executives say the bulk of the new hires will be in Austin.

Currently, Volusion has nearly 180 employees: 101 in Austin and 79 in Simi Valley. The Austin office is at 8911 N. Capital of Texas Highway (Loop 360).

“Austin is a technology mecca, and Volusion is located right in the heart of it. The city encourages collaboration, learning and giving back, and draws people from all over the world,” says Clay Olivier (photo), chief operating officer and chief marketing officer at Volusion. He’s the highest-ranking executive in the company’s Austin office.

At the moment, Volusion has 16 job openings in Austin, mostly in marketing, sales and business development. Two of the available positions in Austin are vice president of marketing and product manager.

“We’re lucky to have some of the sharpest and most passionate individuals working for Volusion,” says Olivier, a former executive at Dell Inc. “Every day, I admire their drive to help business owners succeed and truly make a difference in the lives of others. We are very invested in bringing in additional talent and look forward to growing our team.”

Every “Volusioneer,” as employees are called, follows the company’s five core values:

  • Deliver “WOW” experiences.
  • Innovate and embrace change.
  • Keep it simple, get it done.
  • Rock the golden rule.
  • Have fun and kick butt.

Volusion, founded in 1999, develops and sells e-commerce software. Last year, users of Volusion’s software processed more than $2 billion in online transactions. Among Volusion’s customers are The Walt Disney Co., Motorola Inc. and the Chicago Tribune.

Privately held Volusion racked up revenue of $22.5 million in 2009, compared with $15.7 million the year before. Revenue is expected to hit $33 million this year.
