In the third quarter of this year, more than a dozen companies in the county brought more than 450 jobs to the county.
Two Information Technology companies based in Herndon added roughly 35 jobs. Learning Tree International, which provides IT training, certification and management courses, is adding 25 jobs. BITS, an IT company that is classified as an Economically Disadvantaged Woman Owned Small Business, brought 10 jobs to the area.
Ranstand Technologies, which is based in Tysons, topped this list by adding 300 IT jobs in fiscal year 2020.
Victor Hoskins, president and CEO of the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority, said most of the companies were highly focused on technology.
“Technology is the backbone of the Fairfax County economy, and we are proud to have companies growing in a wide variety of tech sectors – and throughout many areas of the county too,” Hoskins wrote in a statement. “The diversity of these companies also is keeping Northern Virginia globally competitive.”
Tysons-based companies dominated the list of 14 companies.
