Initially founded in Cincinnati, Ohio, GigSmart's executive team chose to relocate the company headquarters to Denver, Colorado, due to its central location and growing supply of tech talent.
"We're proud to be included in Built In Colorado's Best Small Companies to Work For list in 2020. We work hard to cultivate a great environment at GigSmart, and we're glad to see it's recognized," said Rich Oakes, President of GigSmart.
With 36 full-time employees and several open positions in Design, Development, Engineering, Product, QA, and Sales, GigSmart focuses on attracting and retaining talent with the following core values: be positive, work hard, innovate, have passion, exceed expectations, collaborate, and continue to learn.
GigSmart maintains a great culture by hosting quarterly outings and monthly team lunches that allow employees to relax and socialize together outside of the office. Xavier Garrier, a Client Success Representative at GigSmart, says, "The office vibe here at GigSmart is unlike any place I have ever worked — in the best way possible."
Maria Christopoulos Katris, CEO and Co-Founder of Built In, said:
"We extend our heartfelt congratulations to our 2020 honorees. Built In aims to change lives by connecting talented tech professionals with jobs they were born to do.
