After a huge month of fundraising in April, Colorado tech companies are growing their teams like crazy. If you've been thinking of making a career switch or if you've been waiting for the right opportunity to join the ever-growing Colorado tech workforce, now is the time.
Here are six Colorado startups we think you'll love — and they're all hiring.

Hiring tip: “We look for a few common things such as technical aptitude, learning ability and great communication skills," said Ben Reilly, the company's VP of Global Technical Operations. "For me though, it’s more important how someone thinks through situations. The ability to think clearly is an under-appreciated skill set that determines who is successful and who is not.”

We’re a fast-paced work environment that allows you to contribute to an innovative solution that solves a real-world problem. If you’re going to apply, be prepared for exciting activities like Tough Mudder, yoga, Pilates and Tube to Work Day,” said Justin Skall, LogRhythm's Recruiting Operations Analyst.

"Other than that, my best suggestion is just to relax and be yourself. You'll meet a lot of people here, maybe even some other candidates. So take time to interact with everyone, learn as much as you can, and remember - we want to interview you. Be yourself!"
