The EC Group
has added two interns for the summer, with a focus on creating marketing content for the mission-driven firm that helps organizations build remote and hybrid I.T. teams.
The new members of the team are Maria VanDyken, a film and writing major at Calvin College, and Ben Fenlund, a business and marketing student at Bethel University.
Mike Sudyk says the push to develop more marketing content is part of an ongoing process to increase awareness of their firm's service and to educate the business community about the benefits of using remote I.T. talent to complement their existing core team of developers. "We are looking to partner with early stage companies," says Sudyk, who says there can be a negative connotation and lack of understanding about how to utilize remote tech workers, especially overseas. "They (early stage companies) are having a problem finding people locally. Being able to have a remote team come behind the core team can be a real asset," he says.
Sudyk says his company employs 70 full-time workers in India and has four full-time staff in Grand Rapids plus two sales reps. He anticipates bringing on another full-time team member in the next six months.
