We started this year saying that Denver is the hot, growing tech startup scene to watch in 2014. Since we’ve been here we’ve experienced a vibrant, generous community, and one with enormous talent and drive. The city is truly breaking out and becoming one of this country’s new tech hubs. We can’t wait for this year’s Denver Startup Week which grows bigger every year. Similar to Denver’s evolution, Signpost Denver has also developed significantly with a bigger team and a new Denver downtown office, officially opened by Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock.
Last year two of our early New York employees moved and brought the Signpost culture to Denver. When starting our third office location, there were a handful of people in a back room that we sublet on the 16th Street Mall. We grew that office to 20 people with 3 departments and once we got too big, we moved to LODO in our current 8,500 sq ft two story building. We are looking to hire over 10 plus sales representatives and account managers each month – look here for our Denver job positions – and plan to grow to 100 people in our building by the end of 2014. Or as we’d like to sing “Started from the bottom, now we’re here!”
While it has been more than a year that the Signpost Denver office opened its doors that initial excitement has never left. With a young, high-energy team that grows a little every month, the office is a place where everyone likes to be. People often stay late after work to hang out and have a cold one. With the presence of the sales and account management teams there is a lot of activity in the office bringing out everyone’s personality, both on the phone and off the phones. The music, games and contests, our Jumbotron and endless caffeine add to the exhilarating office environment.
Our new location has been a joy for everybody on the team. We have an amazing old brick office that is in the heart of Denver. There’s a brewery to the left, Coors Field not even a block away to the right and the beautiful Mountains behind us. Everyone in the office comes to work with a positive attitude. We have a lot of competitions but genuinely want colleagues to succeed. And our director and managers are great at amping everybody up and motivating you to be the very best every day. In the end the office culture is ‘All for one, and one for all!’
