With success comes a big, swanky office. Out with the Ikea desks and folding chairs, and in with all sorts of workday perks. We talked to three of Colorado's hottest tech companies into letting us photograph their inner office sanctums and to let us share them with you. Don't worry — office envy is completely understandable.
Office size: 21,000 square feet
What they love about the space: We enjoy the open environment and our patio but LOVE our restaurant-grade espresso machine.
What they wanted but didn't get: A Star Wars themed full bar with Han Solo lookalike bartender and lightsaber stir sticks.
Employees: 175 (there's another 175 employees in their other Boulder offices too)
Office size: 34,000 square feet
What they love about the space: Our open floor plan and collaborative environment, lots of natural light, amazing views of the Flatirons, wrap-around balcony, modular conference rooms that open up to create the "Big Bear" meeting room, location in the heart of Boulder's 29th Street Mall.
What they wanted but didn't get: Ziplines over to Orange Theory, Pure Barre, the yoga studio, day spa and Starbucks.
Office size: 43,000 square feet
What they love about the space: We are lucky to be in a great downtown location. We have an open patio, Mario Land game room, 24 unique decorated meeting rooms and our team's favorite, a 4-person Pac-Man machine.
What they wanted but didn't get: We would love to bring our dogs to work, have 5 Colorado craft beers on tap, and a shuffleboard table for a little office competition.
