Central Indiana software firm faces engineer crunch

November 17, 2010

A software company based in central Indiana is going on a 10-city recruiting tour in search of applicants to fill 150 engineering jobs by next spring.

Representatives of Columbus-based LHP Software said they will start the tour Dec. 8 in Indianapolis, with stops later in Detroit and Minneapolis.

Company president Dave Glass told The Republic of Columbus that it and similar companies are struggling to find qualified software engineers because the field has relatively few college graduates each year. Glass said LHP had recruiters visit 22 universities in the fall.

The company now has some 200 workers and develops software that it says helps run computers in equipment such as cars, phones and hospital beds.

LHP launched a subsidiary in 2007 that has grown with the help of joint ventures with Chinese companies.
