What is the Boulder office environment like?

As you walk into our offices, you can feel the collaborative energy with an abundancy of meeting rooms and white boards, ideas written on walls and sticky notes, and work areas that define the personalities of those that occupy them through their own customization. The walls are low and the collaboration is high, and our modern, adjustable furniture allows you to stand-up or sit down based on your thoughts, comfort and mood. If your brain gets full, and you just want to step away, go to our game room for some foosball, ping pong, or enjoy some snacks and beverages. Enjoy the 300 plus days of Colorado sun with our open space and plentiful windows, or simply step out on our balcony to soak up the rays. If you want to stay close, food trucks stop by regularly, coffee with fresh milk or cream is always available, and a dry cleaner service picks up and delivers for your convenience. If you want to get away, we are in a fantastic downtown location near restaurants, stores, walking/biking trails, and more! Just grab one of our loaner bikes for your exercise or errands.
