Colorado seems to have everything: A rich history, mountains, forests, lakes and rivers, National Parks, big cities and an incredible tech scene.

As the leaves change across the Rocky Mountains, tech companies continue to hire in the state, and across the country for remote positions. They’re offering benefits like 401(k) matches, unlimited paid time off and flexible work schedules to attract tech talent.

In June, Donuts Inc. and Afilias announced a rebrand under the name Identity Digital. With a new logo, name, website and, well, identity, the company is hiring across departments. And at crypto-lending company SALT, a new strategic partnership to bring crypto lending to auto dealerships brings opportunities for new engineers to innovate.

Built In Colorado learned more about the perks and benefits Identity Digital and SALT offer their employees.


What they do: Identity Digital aims to inspire people and businesses to own their uncompromised digital identity. Identity Digital owns the world's largest portfolio of top-level domains including photography, .company, .careers and .travel, allowing businesses to have a clear and meaningful identity online. 


The perks:

  • Eight hours of volunteer time off to give back to the community
  • 12 weeks paid parental leave for primary caretakers and eight weeks paid leave for secondary caretakers
  • $1,500 annual stipend for employees to continue their professional education
  • 401(k) match dollar-for-dollar up to 5% (max company match applies)
  • Home workspace setup benefit for new hires
  • Generous PTO in addition to closing between Dec. 25 and Jan. 1

    Supporting team member well-being: Identity Digital encourages an environment with meaningful downtime to create a positive and productive work environment. This flexibility allows everyone to bring their best selves to work and work together as one team. 

    Open positions: Identity Digital is hiring data and analytics professionals and software engineers, and several of the company’s open roles are for remote or hybrid positions. 




    What they do: SALT is a crypto-backed lending service that offers cash and stablecoin loans for individuals and businesses to help them grow long-term wealth. SALT plans to launch the first crypto-backed credit card.


    The perks:

    • Remote-first workplace
    • 401(k) with company match
    • Unlimited vacation
    • Employees receive equity grants to align their financial interests with SALT’s success through company equity
    • Monthly stipend to support remote work cost


      Recognition builds connection: When SALT’s workforce went remote, they implemented an employee perks and recognition program. All SALT employees receive $150 in SALTcoin to redeem, and they also receive 100 extra SALTcoin to give to coworkers they wish to recognize. “Within my first month, I was able to use my SALTcoin to send flowers, redeem gift cards and send and receive recognition,” Mike Zhang, director of corporate development, told Built In. “It accelerated the timeline to settle into the new job; I felt like I was part of the family.”
