Senior Product Owner for Mobile Public Health Company

The Culture

Our small startup client in Boulder is proud of their laid back environment and that everyone has a piece of the company (equity).  Everyone loves what they do and they take their jobs very seriously.  They love to make highly functional and useful products and they know they are making a real difference in people’s lives.

They pride themselves on getting things done very quickly, with an eye always on quality and what the customer deserves.

There is no official vacation policy and stress is generally low.  The philosophy is that you should be able to get your work done in a 40-hour work week and that abusing your body to meet deadlines or get a product out the door is counter-productive.  That said- make no mistakes- people work very hard- they just work smarter-than-your-average-bear.  Get your @#$! done and go play and come back refreshed.

Their office is a converted Victorian house in a great area- close to restaurants and the fun on Pearl Street.
