Co Founders of Mindtree has 47 employees already working for him here.
Mindtree software engineer Tara Parkins is one recent University of Florida Grad with a job.
"I applied and within a couple of weeks an interview had been planned and shortly thereafter I got an offer," Parkins said.
It's on the third floor of the Ayers Plaza building Parkins is getting the training she needs to keep her talent here in Gainesville.
