Published:

Quick Left

www.quickleft.com

Location: Boulder

Rank: 10 in the small company category

The culture: Quick Left maintains an open-door policy that encourages employees to interact with each other. “In fact, we don’t have any offices (just conference rooms), so employees work shoulder to shoulder with everyone – including execs.”

Perks: The company provides stock options to its team members at the time of hire as well as additional grants based on merit/contribution. New employees are eligible for The Quick Left 401(k) after three months, with a one-to-one company match up to 3 percent of income.

The office kitchen offers healthy goodies such as Clif Bars and fruit, as well as regular company-provided lunches. Quick Left is a pet-friendly office, and provides a corporate membership rate to a Boulder climbing gym.

Giving back: The company hosts quarterly Hackfests, free events to bring together the developer and designer communities and build innovative applications that solve real-world problems in three hours or less.

The inside scoop: “Biking specifically has allowed us to not only attract great talent (and clients) but also inspired our employees to bike to work. We have indoor bike parking and regularly have it overflowing with bikes. We’re doing our community a favor in part by having less cars on the road, and our employees are fitter and happier (and possibly more competitive) than before,” a Quick Left team member said.
