Restaurant hiring for hospitality jobs in Atlanta

Saturday, August 25th, 2012

A Buckhead restaurant is supposedly hiring for hospitality jobs in Atlanta.

A local news story reported that Del Frisco’s Grille is hiring about 150 people for these jobs.

They will be hosting a hiring fair in honor of the new openings and is anticipating filling them at this hiring fair.

Del Frisco’s Restaurant Group — the leading steakhouse company in the country — owns and operates more than 30 restaurants across the country, including the Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House and Sullivan’s Steakhouse brands. The Del Frisco’s team created Del Frisco’s Grille as a nimble third brand for the company, presenting a varied menu of easy-to-share dishes such as wood oven-baked flatbreads and hearty salads, while carrying over the Del Frisco’s hallmarks of quality foods, excellent preparations and a lively, fun environment marked by genuine hospitality.

For guests, the varied menu means digging into signature dishes such as Ahi Tacos and Cheesesteak Egg Rolls. For traditionalists, the Grille serves prime steak, and the diverse, 500-selection wine list is much more extensive than those found in the typical bar and grill. Other favorites at the Grille include imaginative cocktails like The Kilt Lifter, Apt. 5D, and shots on tap. Guests can enjoy these at the restaurant’s bar.

The company said in an article that it is seeking 150 personal, outgoing and professional people for positions throughout the restaurant.

Employees will be offered generous benefits, including 401(k) with company match and medical, dental and vision insurance.

The career fair will be held from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 18 at 3525 Piedmont Road NE (7 Piedmont Center, Suite 300) in Buckhead.

Company looking to create IT jobs in Atlanta

Monday, August 13th, 2012

A provider of network security and management solutions for enterprise and service provider networks said this week it is growing, opening new offices, and creating IT jobs in Atlanta, among other locations.

Arbor Networks, provider of network security and other services, said it is expanding its research, development and engineering facilities in Ann Arbor, Michigan and Atlanta, Georgia as well as moving its corporate headquarters location to Burlington, Massachusetts.

That means three cities will be a part of the company’s widening berth.

To meet demand for its products that protect corporate and service provider networks from availability threats, specifically, distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, Arbor Networks is hiring for IT jobs in Atlanta. It is also hiring at the other aforementioned locations.

The company said it was recently cited as top supplier of DDoS prevention solutions overall as well as in the Carrier, Enterprise, Mobile and Government market segments.

Arbor has recently expanded the Ann Arbor research and development center, adding 10,000 feet of office space and 1,200 feet of lab and data center space. The expansion is devoted to providing additional capacity for product development teams, while the lab expansion adds significantly to Arbor’s ability to build and test large-scale solutions for our customers.

In Ann Arbor, the company is seeking to fill full-time positions in the following areas: Project Management, Product Development, Tools Development, Security Analysis and Quality Assurance. In addition, Arbor has an ongoing summer intern program with the University of Michigan and will be on campus doing both intern and full-time recruiting in the fall of 2012.

According to its bio, Arbor Networks was founded as the result of research conducted at the University of Michigan. With funding from a DARPA grant, the technology was later commercialized and Arbor Networks was formed in 2000.

“To be a market leader for a decade in the security business starts with having the best talent. We’re working every day to develop easy-to-use solutions that solve complex problems, addressing critical issues for customers, and competing against a thriving hacktivist community that is innovating and advancing its own tools and techniques,” said Vice President of Engineering Kris Lamb. “Arbor is in a technology and market sweet spot, with an incredible research platform in our ATLAS® infrastructure, which collects 35 Tbps of core Internet traffic intelligence. For security researchers and engineers, these are hugely attractive assets. Rapid growth presents unique challenges to an organization, but you won’t hear me complaining about them. This is an exciting time for Arbor Networks.”
