Founded in 1740, Leesburg has a long and interesting history. During the War of 1812, Leesburg became the temporary seat of the U.S. government when the British marched on Washington D.C. During the Civil War, the city, founded by a relative of Robert E. Lee, changed hands numerous times, becoming the headquarters of both Union and Confederate armies. Today, Leesburg serves as the county seat for Loudoun County.
In Leesburg’s Old Town district, high-tech firms occupy a number of historic buildings dating from the 19th century. This mini-center of IT and software firms have created a technical staffing hotspot. Companies employing technical talent include Fed Biz ITSolutions, Technology Development Systems, Noldus Information Tech and Pink Gravy. Of course, pure technical firms are not the only ones who have a technical staffing requirement. Other notable Leesburg employers who use IT/tech pros include Loudoun County, Beyond Sports Network and Stryker Corporation.
