SUNNYVALE, Calif., Dec. 20, 2012
SUNNYVALE, Calif., Dec. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Ruckus Wireless, Inc. (NYSE:
RKUS) today announced that it was honored by Inc. magazine as a 2012 Hire
Power Award winner. Generating 303 jobs from 2008 to 2011, Ruckus, which
conducted its initial public offering (IPO) on the New York Stock Exchange
(NYSE) on November 16, 2012, was named the third largest job creator in the
telecommunications industry during this time period.
"Given our work in the carrier Wi-Fi industry, Ruckus is in a rapid growth
phase and is at the forefront of job creation in the United States and around
the world," said Kathleen Swift, vice president, human resources. "We are
known for being a fierce player that likes to cause a 'ruckus,' which is
appealing to the type of talented, innovative thinkers we tend to hire."
"The people who come to work at Ruckus appreciate the somewhat off-beat
culture, as well as the fact that their voice counts," she continued. "We
strongly encourage participation at all levels and give people an opportunity
to take part in making decisions about how things are done. Working in a truly
innovative environment with such smart, creative people who are developing
game-changing technology makes Ruckus an exciting place to be."
The Inc. Hire Power Awards are sponsored by Bank of America and Merrill Lynch,
and recognize private companies that are restoring lives and rebuilding the
economy by putting Americans back to work. Inc. Hire Power Award winners
appear in Inc.'s December/January issue as well as on www.inc.com.

and reliability of wireless networks for businesses and service providers

company has more than 18,000 customers comprising mobile carriers, broadband
service providers and medium/large enterprises, and employs more than 600
full-time staff across 24 countries.
"The top 100 companies on the list have created 73,032 American jobs in the
three years from 2008 to 2011—an amazing feat, given that much of that job
growth came during the heart of the recession," said Inc. editor-in-chief Eric
Schurenberg. "We salute the companies listed on the 2012 Hire Power list as
heroes that are restoring job creation and the strength of the economy, and
strengthening America's position as a leader in innovation."
