Technical Integrity (http://technicalintegrity.com/)
We've created a better way to help employers and highly skilled technologists connect. It involves critical elements that so many people forget: a focus on a two-way cultural matching for both our clients and candidates, as well as engaging with and giving back to the community. This is part of our DNA, and as a result we've changed the way technical placements are done. We are highly selective and only work with the most interesting and well-respected startups and mid-size employers in Boulder, Denver, and around the nation. These are companies who treat their employees with respect, have fun, and understand that valued employees = happy employees . We also take pride in representing only the best Engineers and Executives. We emphasize quality, honesty, and integrity in everything we do. In 2011 we gave back almost $[masked] to charities and non-profits in Boulder and beyond. Over the past few years we've helped our community to bring together like-minded folks at Meetups, Ignite Boulder and BoulderBeta. We are proud to be sponsoring Boulder Denver New Tech Meetup. Drop us a line if we can be of assistance to you, oh, and we love snarky comments- so snark away!

We bring with us extensive knowledge and years of experience working with clients ranging from early-stage startups to large global brands.
