At AJAXWorld 2007 East in March of this year, the company was looking for Senior AJAX Consultants in San Mateo and Amsterdam to deliver its consulting and training services.

The same is true of many of the other sponsors and exhibitors at the upcoming AJAXWorld 2007 West, many of whom are looking to hire rich internet applications and AJAX developers, including for example AJAXWorld Platinum Sponsor Cynergy Systems which is also experiencing rapid growth.
