Colorado Tech Weekly #281: Hiring is Hard! Colorado is Great! Denver Startup Week Was Fun!
Colorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10 technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!
The startup I work for (I keep wanting to say “My company” but I don’t want people to think I’m in charge) is hiring for a front-end engineer/designer, a full stack .NET engineer and a software implementation engineer. Infinicept is a very small company so we don’t have a single person to do recruiting and hiring, we just have us and it’s made me appreciate what work is done by a good “people person”.
This week’s headlines is more of the same. More growth! You’d think that after almost 300 weeks of mostly good news about growth, it would get boring but it never does!
Speaking of good things, I am slightly ashamed by the lack of original content on this blog so I’m going to start writing more blog posts! Last week I started my 2018 Denver Startup Week Review with a look at Day 1. You’ll never guess what’s in store for this week… ok you probably will so I’ll just tell you that it’s going to be about Day 2.
Have a great week!
