Kaseya: Tech Boost

| 1/17/2024

Security software giant Kaseya has aggressively expanded its Miami global headquarters by pledging to create 3,400 jobs with an average salary of $107,000 by 2025.

The company is committing more than $16 million in capital investments that would create an additional 1,593 indirect jobs and generate about $326 million in new disposable income, and a $450 million annual net economic impact for the community.

“With tech layoffs recently impacting thousands of people and their organizations across the U.S., our longstanding partnership with Kaseya to bolster job creation has never been more important,” says Miami-Dade Beacon Council President and CEO Rodrick Miller in unveiling the project.

As a technology network management company, COO Joe Smolarski explains that many of Kaseya’s 50,000 clients are small to mid-sized businesses that rely on the company for their IT and cybersecurity management. Staffing solutions include training both young and experienced workers who don’t necessarily have a college degree. Kaseya believes in investing in their workforce and up-skilling into higher-level roles.

Kaseya has partnered with Florida International University, and other local universities and technical schools, for its Grow your Own Program, an educational program to develop the talent pipeline needed through classes with curricula that are designed to teach the skill set needed by the company. In addition, the company has partnered with technical schools for a remote IT and security management program that offers 40-hour training for a certification, with expectations of 40,000 to 50,000 techs to be certified in the next few years.

Kaseya’s expansion in the Brickell financial district has made it a leading employer in Miami-Dade. Kaseya has offices in the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, India and Singapore.
