FORT MYERS, Fla.- Good news tonight for the thousands out of work in Southwest Florida: 30 high-paying jobs are heading our way.

A down economy isn't stopping Fort Myers-based software company CallMiner from growing. The company is looking to hire, and they recently received millions in investment backing to do just that.

"For us, it's been a really good run, and this $7 million dollars just gives us just a bunch of jet fuel to keep the momentum going," CallMiner CEO Terry Leahy said.

As the company expands, they're looking to add thirty new team members to tackle the load. Leahy says he hopes to hire locally.

"These are software engineers, product development people, product marketing people who want to work in a fast-paced, exciting environment," Leahy said Wednesday.

The global company analyzes recorded customer calls for big clients like Microsoft and Comcast, and then converts the information into an easy-to-navigate database for the companies.

"Why did the call take so long? Was somebody getting upset? Was there agitation on the call? These are really important things for those enterprises to know," Leahy said.

Land one of the thirty coveted CallMiner positions, and you're looking at a salary starting at around $70,000 a year.

"We have to pay a good wage to in order to get the kind of people we want into the organization and to maybe most importantly, keep them happy once they get here," Leahy said.

CallMiner says they're already looking to fill a handful of positions at their office on Metro Parkway. For more information, visit their website at, or email your resume to
