Colorado Tech Weekly #294: More Than Just Skills, Compensation and Benefits
Colorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10 technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!
Infinicept is hiring again for a Software Engineer so we can bring our team of developers up to 6! I enjoy working for Infinicept partly because as an employee of a small company I get to help shape the culture. We’re a team that enjoys achieving together, learning together and helping each other out. I joke with my co-workers that I feel like I’m telling candidates what they want to hear when they ask about our culture.
I’ve noticed that there’s been a lot of companies hiring and people starting new jobs recently. It’s neat to see what people and companies bring to the table that is more than just skills, compensation and benefits. It feels like those things are an expected part of getting and keeping talent but the important part is the way you feel about a company or person? Maybe “how they make you feel” is not the right way to put it, but I’m talking about the things that are hard to put in a job posting or resume that makes managing talent (yours and others’) challenging and interesting.
I am dangerously close to launching off on a tangent so before I do that, here’s this week’s latest tech news and events! Only 6 more Colorado Tech Weekly posts will be on ScottPantall.com. After that, you’ll be able to find them on the new and improved ColoradoTechWeekly.com.
Have a great week!
