A great salary and a creative environment are not all that we have to offer. Every team member receives full healthcare benefits (for you and your entire family), a 401K plan, unlimited vacation (yes, we believe only *you* know when you need a break and how long it needs to last), free downtown Boulder parking, work schedules that are your own to specify, leaders who understand you want to master your craft with as much autonomy as you want, company meals on Fridays and an executive team that has over 15 startup experiences (5 of which had successful financial outcomes) combined.
We are located in downtown Boulder, Colorado. For those of you who live in/near Boulder you'll know it to be America's happiest town, foodiest (yes, that's a word -- in our minds) town filled with more than 300 days of sunshine, bike paths that transport you all around town and running/biking paths that are a few blocks from the office for the morning, noon or evening fun. As a member of the Pacific 12 conference, you'll get to watch the University of Colorado compete at the highest levels of collegiate athletics if that's your gig. Or, if you like Shakespeare and the Symphony, outdoor summer venues are amongst the best in the country. If you don't live in/near Boulder then you'll also be happy to know that the school systems are among the top in the state, cost of living is accessible, commutes range from the "I can't believe I just rode my bike 5 minutes to work" to "wow, that 10 minute cross-town traffic was just a bear today" commutes, and we are a short drive (physically) from Denver.
Our offices are just a half-block off the famous Pearl Street walking mall, offering great food and after-work fun within walking distance of the office. What could be more simple?
