As 2016 draws to a close, many of us have begun imagining what we want 2017 to look like. If a new job is in your future, we’ve got you covered. We combed through dozens of companies who are hiring right now and hand-picked seven you should definitely check out.
Greystone handles managed IT services, digital marketing and web development for clients like Breckenridge Brewery and UCHealth.
Open positions: They’re hiring multiple people for each role posted, including three positions for technical engineers, three positions for IT engineering consultants, two positions for IT implementation consultants and a digital marketing specialist.
Hiring manager tip: “One of the most important tips is for candidates to be honest about their understanding of technical items. Hearing about DNS and TCP/IP somewhere in your previous job is much different than actually understanding it enough as a skillset one can rely upon in the thick of it. It comes out loud and clear when candidates are asked to explain the technology at a conceptual level.” — David Stokes, VP of managed technology services
ShaleApps creates software that makes field and fleet management more efficient for the oil and gas industry. Their products help managers see what each truck is up to and handles accounting and invoicing.

Note from the boss: “ShaleApps is a place where you are challenged every day to solve huge issues in the logistics management space. We are a group that uses a modern tech stack and gives you the freedom to conquer these challenges.” — Adam Klenk, president
Webroot’s cybersecurity solutions protect customers on a personal and enterprise level. They help consumers fight identity theft and protect them from viruses, while their enterprise-level products range from endpoint protection to threat intelligence.
Perks: All the benefits you’d expect from a corporate job like health care, retirement plans and disability insurance, plus perks like tuition reimbursement, gym memberships and snazzy standing desk options.
What they look for: “Webroot looks for more than just strong technical skills when identifying talent. It’s important that our employees also have a positive attitude, a desire to learn, a high level of grit and a sense of humility. Technical skills get you the interview, the intangibles get you the job.” — Jason Berumen, senior global talent manager

Open positions: OpenTable’s looking to hire more than 20 customer service reps — including ones who are bilingual in Spanish or German — as well as sales and business development reps.
What they look for: “While technical skills are important, it’s a passion for providing an exceptional customer experience that stands out for me.
