Magento Picks Two
What is it with these open-source nomads, eh? Magento, the open-source e-commerce platform provider, added to its stable with the hiring of Michael Goossens (a former EMEA vice president for Red Hat) and Jary Carter (former Americas channel director at Alfresco). In a statement from the time of the announcement, Magento touted its base of employees as on track to nearly double (from 100 to 180) by the end of 2010, and sales are expected to increase as much as 300 percent. "Magento on the rise" doesn't seem like an inaccurate descriptor.
