For the second time in as many weeks, a Tysons-based company has shared plans to expand its local operations.
The technology services provider Easy Dynamics Corporation will invest $100,000 in its Tysons office at 2000 Corporate Ridge, a move that will create 61 new jobs, the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority announced today (Monday).
According to the news release, the new jobs will range from software engineers and business analysts to project managers and other business support roles.
“We are proud to be the home of Easy Dynamics and gratified to see it continue to expand in Fairfax County,” FCEDA President and CEO Victor Hoskins said in a statement. “The company also has been an innovator in workforce development, and we look forward to using our Fairfax County-funded talent initiative to help it grow in the county.”
Founded in 2006, Easy Dynamics offers cybersecurity, cloud, information sharing, automation, and other technology-focused services.
CEO Poupak Afshar says the company chose Fairfax County as its headquarters for the area’s proximity to the federal government, the strength of its workforce, and its growing reputation as a hub for the tech sector.
“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,” Afshar said.
The Easy Dynamics news comes on the heels of Gov. Glenn Youngkin’s announcement last week that the security provider Alarm.com will expand its technology research and development work in Tysons with a $2.6 million investment.
Echoing his sentiments from that announcement event, Fairfax County Board of Supervisors Chairman Jeff McKay said in a statement that Easy Dynamics’ expansion validates the county’s efforts to create a pro-business environment that supports diversity.
“The Board of Supervisors has worked hard to create an environment where businesses of all kinds, and entrepreneurs from all backgrounds, can grow and thrive,” McKay said. “I thank Poupak Afshar and her team at Easy Dynamics for the vote of confidence that they have shown in taking advantage of the assets we have built here for companies and their employees.”
Here is more from the FCEDA news release:
The FCEDA worked with the Virginia Economic Development Partnership to secure the project for Virginia and will support Easy Dynamics’ job creation through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program (VJIP), which provides consultative services and funding to companies creating new jobs in order to support employee recruitment and training activities. As a business incentive supporting economic development, VJIP reduces the human resource costs of new and expanding companies. VJIP is state-funded, demonstrating Virginia’s commitment to enhancing job opportunities for residents.
“Northern Virginia is a top-ranked tech talent market in the U.S. and Easy Dynamics will benefit from our industry workforce pipeline at its Fairfax County location,” Youngkin said. “Supporting the growth of existing businesses of all sizes is a priority, and the Virginia Jobs Investment Program will provide valuable assistance to the company in the recruitment and training of 61 new employees.”
