WESTLAKE, OHIO - Global software company Hyland has announced plans to expand its headquarters in Westlake and hire more than 300 new employees this year.

The expansion includes a 70,000-square-foot addition to its research and technology center in Westlake. The added space will accommodate more than 300 new employees and a new training center for employees, partners and customers.

Hyland, the maker of OnBase, is consistently ranked as one of the best places to work in Cleveland. It has a relaxed dress code, work from home opportunities and on-site café and child care.

“If you’re in technology, if you’re interested in technology, this is the place you want to be,” Dave Amen told us.

Hyland hired Amen less than 2 years ago. He works as a development manager and knows he has a coveted spot. Hiring is competitive, but thanks to a 70,000 square foot addition to its research and technology center, the company will hire hundreds more people.

Recruiter Tyson Meikle says Hyland needs people in every department. They’ll hire software engineers, test technicians, consultants, account managers and network security specialists – just to name a few positions.

Many of their employees have technical degrees in computer science, computer engineering or management information systems. But aside from formal degrees, they value certifications, too, in areas like software engineering and computer programing.

When interviewing, Hyland puts a huge emphasis on the ability to communicate. They say collaboration is key.

“Really family oriented. That’s one thing that I value the most, because we all treat each other here with a lot of respect and we always have fun at work, as well,” Ulysses Smith said. He’s been with Hyland as a support specialist for nearly 5 years.

A life-long Clevelander, Amen’s happy to work in a place modeled after companies in Silicon Valley and realizes the value of it in Northeast Ohio.

“It’s a growing technology company right here in Cleveland, continuing to grow. It’s fast-paced, it’s dynamic. There’s always something new and interesting to learn,” said Amen.
