Electronic publisher Alexander Street announced plans to hire 10 new staff effective immediately.

Said company president Stephen Rhind-Tutt, “We’ve seen a big increase in interest over the past year in our databases and in our video offerings in particular. We plan to more than double the size of our video collections in 2012, and we’re also launching new full-text online collections in anthropology, gay and lesbian studies, and in classical music. The new positions we’re recruiting for will help us do this. With existing vacancies this brings the total number of staff we’re looking to recruit to more than 15.”

The positions themselves cover a wide range of departments including editorial, software development, production, business development, finance, and sales. Five of the new positions will be based in Alexander Street’s Shanghai office, one in Australia, two in the UK, and the rest at the company’s headquarters in Alexandria, VA.
