Tysons, Virginia-based Easy Dynamics Corporation is investing $100,000 to add 61 new local tech jobs, the company announced today.
Easy Dynamics, an IT consulting company focused on cybersecurity, cloud computing and information sharing, made the move by way of an announcement from Gov. Glenn Youngkin. The company was founded in 2006, and also offers management consulting in its services. Easy Dynamics said it will be hiring software engineers, business analysts, project management professionals and business support personnel.
“Northern Virginia has emerged as one of the nation’s leading and thriving tech hubs for driving growth and innovation for our nation,” said Poupak Afshar, CEO of Easy Dynamics, in a statement. “We chose Fairfax County as our corporate headquarters due to the proximity and access to federal agencies, industry partners, and top talent. Northern Virginia is home to the second-largest cybersecurity workforce in the U.S. and the state’s attractive business climate make the area a fantastic location for technology companies of all sizes.”
With the announcement, Afshar noted that Easy Dynamics is hoping to broaden the tech talent pool in NoVa. The company, she said, recently became one of the first Virginia companies in Break Through Tech’s “sprinternship” program, which offers a three-week paid internship to women and nonbinary students. Easy Dynamics is committed to investing in such programs that support future tech talent, Afshar said.
The announcement was made in partnership with the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority and the Virginia Economic Development Partnership. Hiring will be completed through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program, a state fund that helps local companies that are creating jobs with recruitment, hiring and training.
The announcement echoes a move from last week, when Tysons-based Alarm.com, a cloud-based home automation and monitoring services company, added 180 new roles following a $2.6 million investment. The funds were put toward the tech research and development division at the company’s headquarters.
