Austin, TX – February 15, 2018 – Zilker Partners, an Austin-based IT staffing and consulting company built on personal relationships, reports significant demand for skilled IT talent in the Colorado market, driven by an influx of tech companies. Zilker Partners opened its second office in Denver, Colorado specifically to help companies fill their positions with superior candidates for better long-term results.
“Colorado is booming,” says Jeff Anderson, CEO at Zilker Partners. “Tech companies are flocking to the Colorado area and filling those skilled positions can be challenging without investing significant resources. Zilker Partners develops deep relationships with clients and candidates so we can make better matches using our proprietary vetting process. This saves them time and money while ensuring they have the right person for every job.”
In advance of opening an office in Denver, Zilker Partners researched all of its options and found the following business drivers:
Colorado is third in the nation for tech workers per capita
Colorado is home to more than 100,000 technology companies
Colorado launches a new tech company every three days
Denver has seen a rise in cybersecurity, cloud computing and business intelligence companies moving to the area
Boulder has seen growth in the telemarketing and network security industries
Colorado Springs is seeing a 25 percent increase in software companies moving to the area
Future job growth in Colorado Springs is predicted to be nearly 40 percent
A steady stream of viable IT job candidates are likely to continue to fuel the job growth, as area colleges and universities expand their computer science programs. Colorado School of Mines, Colorado College, University of Boulder, University of Denver and Colorado State University were all rated (in order) the top five higher education institutions for computer science degrees in the state.
“Beyond the opportunities for quality jobs in IT in Colorado, the state attracts people from all over the world because of its weather, its focus on healthy lifestyles and its quality of life,” says Jim Burk, general manager at Zilker Partners in Colorado. “It’s a beautiful, happy place to live but people are realizing it’s a great place to work and run a business. Zilker Partners is filling these positions with candidates who are not only eager to work for these tech companies, but are bringing specialized skill sets that are enabling the companies to innovate and grow rapidly.”
