Who’s Hiring:

Seattle Business Magazine reports that Seattle-based F5 Networks made Forbes’ list of midsize companies hiring the most right now. F5, which was named one of Washington’s Best Workplaces by Puget Sound Business Journal this year, says it has added 300 positions since last October 2009. The company makes IT software and hardware for banks, universities and Internet search providers. According to their website, F5 currently has 50 job openings in Seattle and four in Spokane.

Who’s Firing:

Microsoft cut jobs from its global work force last month, with TechFlash estimating a few hundred jobs lost in the Seattle region. Today, TechFlash reports that product support and consulting jobs took the biggest hit, dropping to 15,000 people as of June 30 from 17,000 the year before. Jobs in research and development and sales and marketing also fell by 1,000 people each.
