Summer in Colorado is coming to an end, and though the temperatures may be dropping, tech hiring in the state is showing no signs of cooling off. With nearly $62 million in tech last month, Colorado tech companies are growing fast and looking for lots of fresh talent to join their ranks.

Here are five of the top companies hiring in the month of September.



What they do: Vertafore provides cloud software for the rapidly changing insurance industry. The company’s SaaS products enable agencies and businesses to scale and grow through better insights and more advanced tech solutions.

Coolest perks: 401(k) matching, generous PTO, Downtown Denver location, casual dress, collaborative environment

Hiring tip: “Be inquisitive,” said Angie Lawn, senior development manager. “Even the most seasoned engineers seek to find new ways of doing old things and have a constant thirst for learning new technologies and practices. This helps keep you stay current in the industry and forward thinking in strategy and approach. By being curious you also promote an important skill for your team. A team that isn’t afraid to ask questions and learn — whether that is understanding team members, technology or processes — makes more informed decisions, strengthens their performance and promotes better working relationships.”



What they do: Xactly Corp specializes in sales performance management, providing a range of cloud solutions that help companies build more effective incentive compensation programs for their teams.

Coolest perks: Flex time off, fitness reimbursement, tuition reimbursement and a fully stocked kitchen

Hiring tip: "We're seeking dreamers — those who live on the edge of life, take chances and put everything on the line as they grow,” said Sean Murray, VP of global sales. “Those seeking a role with Xactly should get excited about the impressive growth in SaaS, expect to thrive in a meritocracy environment, build B2B sales behaviors, and most important, help shape the local Denver community through our organized volunteer program, XactlyOne!"




What they do: Credera provides management consulting, user experience and technology solutions services to businesses of all sizes. Their offerings range from IT strategy and talent management to cloud infrastructure and mobile.

Coolest perks: Mentorship programs, company volunteer service days, annual all-expenses-paid team trips

Hiring tip: “Ultimately, we strive to be the best strategic and innovative partner to our clients," said Patrick Alexander, senior talent acquisition specialist. "If you are interested in working with a high-performing team focused on providing the best solutions to the toughest challenges our customers face, Credera is for you.” 



What they do: AdAction is a mobile adtech company helping businesses enhance user acquisition and increase brand recognition through iOS and Android marketing campaigns.

Coolest perks: Flexible work hours, generous PTO, comprehensive insurance benefits, 401(k) matching

Hiring tip: "I look for analytical candidates with a proven track record of success, regardless of their role or industry,” said Dianne Wright, manager of people and culture. “I appreciate when candidates come prepared to discuss past work experiences in detail and can find a way to connect their background to the role they are applying for at AdAction. This shows they are interested in the position, have done their research, and have a desire to succeed."



What they do: Adtaxi works with media businesses and advertisers to implement performance-driven digital marketing campaigns.

Coolest perks: Medical, dental, vision and 401(k) benefits, kitchen stocked with snacks, employee assistance program, immediate access to PTO

Hiring tip: “We want to be the best,” said recruiter Mary Chandler. “That’s why we hire the best. We thrive on challenging, rewarding, purpose-driven work. We’re looking for skilled individuals like you — for professionals full of talent, but not of themselves. If Adtaxi feels like a good fit for you, let’s talk.”
